Bach: MS Xbox Unit Sees No Consumer Slowdown

Microsoft Corp has not seen a slowdown in consumer spending from the slumping U.S. economy at its entertainment and devices division, which includes the Xbox and Zune businesses, the unit's president said on Tuesday.

"We have not seen, on the consumer side of our business, a slowdown," Robbie Bach, one of Microsoft's top executives, said during a company event.

The Xbox business has been doing very well, according to Bach, who noted that the video games business moves on new release cycles and not economic ones. He also said he expects Xbox to have a strong holiday shopping season.

The story is too old to be commented.

It's hard to have a slow down with Zune considering they never sell any....
