Microsoft only gets money from PC games in the form of people having to buy Windows to play them and if Microsoft has some software that the game was made with.

Xbox is much more profitiable as far as gaming goes thanks to Live. You can figure out why on your own.

So Microsoft only makes money when a copy of windows is purchased then,
And not from games running on it...

Hmm thanks for clearing that up

Now Microsoft doesnt own Steam?
Steam runs on windows, dont they owe Microsoft for this?

no. You don't have to pay Microsoft to develop applications on Windows. The only way they get money from that is if you use their tools to make your application like Visual Studio which you have to buy.

This, microsoft profits the most if consumers buy windows for office/non-gaming program needs, and xbox for gaming.
