From the link.

And Microsoft makes nothing from its Xbox/Kinect entertainment division, while losing vast sums in its on-line division.

I'm not sure how Microsoft's Xbox division is doing, but I'm certain that its making a lot more than "nothing". Either this Adam Hartung guy sucks at his job or someone's putting words in his mouth.

I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.

Barns & Nobles will be the next great gaming company.

I especially like the part where he said...

“The entertainment division will be spun off, sold to someone like Sony or possibly Barnes & Noble, or dramatically reduced in size,” says Forbes contributor Adam Hartung.


Note the portion in bold. As we can see gentlemen, this is the exact point where this "analyst" lost all credibility. It's like finding the weakest point in the foundation of a house, kicking that point with mild force, and then watching as the house implodes upon itself.

Microsoft is making less than nothing lol

"Microsoft's Xbox division reported disappointing results, recording a 16 percent drop in revenue, to $1.62 billion. The unit also reported a $229 million operating loss, versus a $210 million profit a year ago."

Not strictly true, that's talking about losses on the console not the games. Those losses were easily recouped through services like XBL.
