I’ve been covering Xbox news for about 15 years. Forums, podcast and even in this same house. And if there is one sentence that is not missing every year, it is the one that bury xbox brand. From a “mysterious shareholder” who wanted to sell it, to Microsoft itself, who, according to the guru’s cabals, wanted to get rid of it.
Of course, the reality is very different and is far from the phobias of those who have never played on one of these machines. The Xbox division continues to grow and receive more and more benefits as well as unconditional support from its parent company. Today we are already starting to get a head start on what the end of this last fiscal quarter has meant in profit for the US company. Especially for the division at hand.
Very good data for Xbox, which has iron health
I am sure that we will know the results in much more detail shortly. But at the same time Brad sams He left us a good summary on his professional Twitter account. Although in the previous quarter, the company’s profits increased thanks to Xbox Game Pass, the material was the part that suffered a heavy fall
We now know a little more what the launch of the Xbox series has meant despite the shortage of consoles that users suffer from. According to Sams, Microsoft’s results show 86% growth compared to the previous quarter in the sale of equipment. It’s obvious that the Xbox series has been largely to blame here.
- Gaming revenue increased 51%.
- Xbox content and service revenue increased 40% thanks to Xbox Game Pass and own and third-party titles.
- Xbox Hardware Revenue Increased 86% Thanks to Xbox Series X | S.
For its part, the content and software division grew by 40% more than in the previous quarter. I remember the data was good enough already, but it looks like the Xbox Game Pass continues to perform well for the company. Unfortunately, this time they did not communicate the number of subscribers to the service.
