Where do you people come from?? Do you guys take pleasure in derailing comment sections with your trolling posts and twisted "facts"? What exactly do you get out of it? Do you get a kick out of seeing people write posts proving you wrong? Or is it that you just want to be known as an N4G troll? help me out here, help me understand.

Army_of_Darkness1242d ago

Is the Xbox Division even making a Profit?

Rimeskeem1242d ago

Not trying to hate on Xbox but as far as I know it is setting MS investors back and those investors want to get rid of the xbox division.

old but in case you cared

Italiano12345671242d ago

No they r taking a huge loss on each console sold. I think they rather be 1st in sales then make money

DialgaMarine1242d ago

According to M$'s last financial report, it is making a profit, but barely. It was making more money before the price cuts. It's no where near as profitable as the 360 was for them.

jcnba281242d ago

Would you say Sony are making a profit with the PS4 considering the financial situation they're in?

deadpoolio3161242d ago

NO...The Xbox division has NEVER actually made a profit in the life of Xbox...The original didnt sell well, the 360 had the 54% failure rate costing them billions and they damn sure are not making money from the Xbox One, considering to get it to sell they had to drop it to $350, cut the Kinect and offer like 5 free games for a while just to get people to look at it....

It has never made MS money and their money comes from Windows and everything PC related

Spotie1242d ago

@jcnba: Sony would say they are making money.

But that's neither here nor there.

The question wasn't about Microsoft, but Xbox. Therefore, you should be asking if PlayStation is making a profit.

And I don't think even the most ardent Sony haters can say anything other than yes.

rainslacker1242d ago

They aren't seeking to have MS get rid of the Xbox division, just spinning it off into it's own company so it doesn't hold back the rest of MS stocks.

This is fairly common TBH. If Sony Computer Entertainment weren't already a subsidiary, investors probably would have been saying the same thing last gen when Sony started reporting all it's troubles and the PS brand was taking a loss.

It doesn't say that the Xbox brand is unprofitable, just that it isn't profitable enough to be a real asset to the rest of MS value.

Otherwise, I couldn't say one way or the other if MS is taking a loss on the Xbox brand. I imagine thy haven't made back their investment in the X1 yet, but companies don't work on a yearly repayment principle. The money is already written off, and so outside of expenses for the year, everything else is profit.

Pixelart1241d ago

Of course they are making money. Not much on the sales of consoles, but subscriptions and game sales . Are they doing as well as the PS4 division? Apparently not.

Well done with your maths! Who cares?

xHeavYx1242d ago

The pain in your comment clearly shows that you care.

Ninver1242d ago

Cry more! A lot of gamers care. And they have a right to because more sales = more software (exclusive or not). Now back under your bridge you go.

johndoe112111242d ago

Someone who doesn't care wouldn't feel the need to come here and type that he doesn't care.

BDSE1242d ago

This salt is strong with this one.


So I guess we aren't gamers anymore....i swear this generation of "gamers" seem to be more focused on the politics and numbers than the experience in actual video games. Who cares who has more sales? The bottom line is, is the system you own giving you the games you want. Neither one of these companies are going anywhere soon, therfore there is no need for us as consumers to be wrapped up/concerned about the sales. Leave that to these companies to worry about.

Xbox will be the next console PS4 will surpass by the summer

MRMagoo1231242d ago


I think he means the 360, as in the ps4 will sell more than that by summer. At least that is how I read it.

BiggerBoss1242d ago

@mrmagoo i believe he meant the original xbox. As in Ps4 will sell over (24?) Million units.

Skate-AK1242d ago (Edited 1242d ago )

/s means you are being sarcastic.

InTheLab1242d ago

Read people. The Xbox sold something g like 30m. Surely ps4 will pass that this year.

PhoenixUp1242d ago

@ Heavy

He wasn't being sarcastic. Xbox sold 24 million LTD and PS4 will pass that before the end of this summer.

Magicite1242d ago (Edited 1242d ago )

PS4 already outsold Gamecube LTD and soon gonna pass Xbox LTD - all that in less than 2 years.

Also PS4 now holds over 50% current-gen console market share, which means -> PS4 > X1 + WiiU

jcnba281242d ago

Wii U still has the highest rated games of this gen, which means -> Wii U > PS4 + X1

johndoe112111242d ago

"Wii U still has the highest rated games of this gen"

All that doesn't mean squat if no one's buying the bloody system now does it?

IrishSt0ner1242d ago

And PC owns 55% of gaming market share. 360 PS3 PS4 XBO WiiU hold the other 45% LMAO

jcnba281242d ago


Well done for stating the obvious. Gold star for john doe! Ye call yourselves gamers when all you care about is sales lol how embarrassing.

Whymii1241d ago


Which PC?

Silly Mammo1241d ago

@Whymii- Dude, You're getting a Dell!

AndrewLB1241d ago

PC gaming has been the market leader for quite a few years now.

XanderZane1241d ago

The original Wii did it in less then 18 months. The XB1 will eventually outsell the original XBox and Gamecube as well. It's pretty much a given at this point. The PS3 and XBox 360 outsold them all.

Bathyj1242d ago

Well that simply picture says a thousand word doesn't it. Xbox is sell well but totally pales in comparison to PS4. Poor WiiU. If that was an EKG it would almost be called a flatline and pull the plug.

loadstone0071242d ago

Hope it will happen soon. More gamers = big win for all.

showtimefolks1241d ago

batman exclusive marketing rights will help boost ps4 sales.

MGS5 will also surly help boost ps4 sales

Star wars exclusive marketing will help boost sales in holiday season

and if all the rumors are true that COD will not be having exclusive marketing with ps4/30 days of exclusive dlc

than that's gonna be a huge boost

now uncharted trilogy will help ps4 in holiday season too(if it's being released)

by decemnber 31st 2015 ps4 will most like be above 20 million, yes i think it can easily sell 8 plus million in next 7 months world wide

what's bigger halo or star wars? the only reason i ask is because MS will market the heck out of halo while sony will mos likely market star wars big time too

also with a lot of people switching from xbox to ps4, uncharted trilogy could sell neck and neck and even more than tomb raider

what's left is forza and i am sure having exclusive marketing for COD and MGS5 will help beat that too

that's why i think sony isn't too worried, they can give their 1st/2nd party studios more time yet not loosing any momentum

rezzah1241d ago

With all those games listed, this will be an interested year.

And the Halo vs Star Wars thing is exciting, I look forward to the outcome.

SmielmaN1241d ago

Replying to your "which is bigger" question: Star Wars no doubt. Star Wars has the ability to bring in older new gamers, current gamers, and young new gamers. It's a massive franchise.

ajax171241d ago

But I thought consoles were dead? Isn't mobile the future?

UKmilitia1241d ago

as soon as all the publishers start releasing ps4,xb1 pc only we will see a huge jump.

That crazy, PS4 in the lead by almost 10 million

NeverHeavyMan1242d ago

That's outdated. On the main site, it's already 10 million ahead of the X1 (and that's still with missing data - it's only up to May 16).

johndoe112111242d ago

I'm pretty sure that it's more than that by now. Remember, this is vgchartz.

Germany71242d ago

According to these numbers, Sony is smashing the competition.

SatanicEyeJesus1241d ago

Exactly. Vgchartz always protect the numbers of xone.

indyman77771242d ago

But, but Xbox is only behind a little you ps4'ers are going to be disappointed when the NPD numbers come out.(whisper. whisper, um us xboxers only won a few of months in our home territory. We are getting beat in every country that both are out in by a mile!)....are you serious? (yes)
They killed my xbox.

loopygames1242d ago

This is starting to look very similar to the PS2/Xbox/GameCube generation.

Hercules1891242d ago

Yes it does Xbox has all the cool original games, while the japstation just has boring rpgs. Microsoft will still make a profit when the big games come out.

Ninver1242d ago

Lol your dudebro, Mountain Dew pathetic American shooters won't save the xbone this gen. It's destined to be second best this entire gen and possibly future gens #dealwithit and just enjoy your console

xHeavYx1242d ago

Lol, the pain is real. It will be ok man, I promise.

kayoss1242d ago (Edited 1242d ago )

PlayStation only Japanese RPG games LMAO. If you've been gaming for the last 8 years, you know this isnt true. I just need to ask you this, " Do you even game bro?".

Italiano12345671242d ago

Dude they ain't making no profit. There raking a huge loss on each console sold.

MysticStrummer1242d ago (Edited 1242d ago )

"Xbox has all the cool original games, while the japstation just has boring rpgs."

Most clueless comment of the day!

PS has always had a more diverse and creative lineup than XB. This generation is no different so far.

Edit - I spoke too soon. The guy below talking about PS4 sales stagnating since January when there's a graph right in front of him is the most clueless. Tomorrow is another day, Herc!

Germany71242d ago

I would call Bloodborne, The Last of Us, Journey, LittleBigPlanet as original games, not another Halo, another Gears, another Forza and goes on.

MasterCornholio1242d ago


You sir are a racist. I find your comment extremely offensive.

SatanicEyeJesus1241d ago

Remembering that even the dudebros are selling more on ps4.

Xbox is selling enough to maintain support though. That wasn't true in past generations. The only time when sales were fairly consistent between two competing platforms was the SNES/Genesis and the PS3/360. Every other time, there was a huge difference where the ones that were behind didn't have a big enough install base to warrant support.

Shineon1242d ago

Who cares buy what you want play what you want
