Microsoft Financial Results, Numbers Falling for the Xbox Division

Xbox Live: Service Issues After the Microsoft Conference

Microsoft has announced the financial results for the fourth quarter of 2019, with decidedly positive numbers with revenues of 33.7 billion dollars and revenues of 13.2 billion, but there has been a negative decline for the Xbox brand.

In the quarter between April 1st and June 30th, revenues from Xbox hardware sales fell by 48% compared to the same period in 2018 while software sales fell by 10%. The sales of the Xbox family have suffered a significant decline, but the decline in sales of games is more moderate, probably physiological considering the not particularly rich lineup of the period in question.

The gaming services division marks -3%, despite this there is a good increase in the number of subscribers to Microsoft subscription services, with monthly active users on Xbox LIVE rising from 57 to 65 million. In general, the video games section grossed 233 million dollars less than the April / June 2018 quarter.

Xbox One S All Digital does not seem to have helped Xbox One sales and analysts say the period of stagnation could go on until the launch of the Scarlett Xbox, with consumers now oriented towards Next-Gen.
