Microsoft has released its financial report for Q2 fiscal year 2014, announcing a large revenue of $24.52 billion for the quarter ended December 31, 2013. The company sold 7.4 million Xbox consoles “into the retail channel” (to the retailer, not consumer) including 3.9 million Xbox One consoles and 3.5 million Xbox 360 consoles. The last report on sales to consumers was around the 3 million mark, so it is safe to assume almost all of the Xbox One consoles were sold.

The Devices and Consumer Hardware division, which houses the Xbox brand reported $4.7 billion for the quarter compared to $2.8 billion year-over-year. On a six-months basis, the firm reported $6.2 billion compared to $3.9 billion yoy.

“Our Commercial segment continues to outpace the overall market, and our Devices and Consumer segment had a great holiday quarter,” said Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer at Microsoft. “The investments we are making in devices and services that deliver high-value experiences to our customers, and the work we are doing with our partners, are driving strong results and positioning us well for long-term growth.”

“We delivered record revenue as demand for our business offerings remains high and we made strong progress in our Devices and Consumer segment,” said Amy Hood, chief financial officer at Microsoft. “These results reflect our focus on execution, cost discipline, and long-term shareholder value as we continue to drive the strategic transformation of the company.”

I was surprised that MS didn't pop in as an NBN ISP here in Australia...


I wish I had the cash in hand to make 20 NBN ISPs tomorrow...

if there's no competition for the Fed Govt forced to sensibly maintain, there's 'no' future in NBN

A spoilt rich kid with wealthy parents could do this right now with enough help from the right places

the system *is* there... it *is* staying.

no one from the government is going to come to your house tomorrow and rip out your the fiber line to your home...

I am still wondering how much more a 'braodband-fiber home' is worth than a non broadband home now.
