Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) shares have tanked 42% in the last 52 weeks. With Zune issues, great XBOX sales, and Windows 7 on the horizon -- what do you make of it all?
Only if the XBOX division at Microsoft could become their own company, then it would be an easy buy. Microsoft has sold more Xbox 360 games last year than in any other year, and said that 28 million consoles have been sold since the game's introduction three years ago.
Xbox 360's total sales now are 8 million more than competitor Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 game. Microsoft added that its Xbox Live online community now numbers 17 million members and more than $1 billion has been spent on Xbox Live in the past three years.
