Microsoft sold 1.4M XBox units last quarter

Microsoft sold 1.4M XBox units last quarter. Microsoft reported the results of its fiscal 2015 today, and the company confirmed that the Xbox business is making more money than last year. The megaconglomerate confirmed it sold 1.4 million Xbox systems in the fourth quarter, which includes both the 360 and Xbox One. That’s up from 1.1 million during Microsoft’s previous fourth quarter.

Revenue for Microsoft’s gaming division were also up 27 percent year-over-year, and it credits that growth spurt to increased console sales, transactions on Xbox Live, and a better slate of first-party releases (including Minecraft). With the console gaming business worth more than $30 billion worldwide, Microsoft likely sees its fiscal 2015 as transition period where it can take a bigger slice of that total through the next 12 months and beyond.
