Not bothering to read the clickbait article, but MS' "Xbox" division includes their phones too, which is the real money loser. Xbox is the thing that's keeping that division from performing even worse.

Sure but they had pretty massive R&D costs and huge expenses related to the RROD and etc. I'm pretty sure the 360 was losing money for a long time either way, I think the end of 2011 was when they confirmed they could sell the hardware at a profit finally after expenses.

It's been awhile since I bothered to look though so *shrug*. I think the division as a whole has been profitable since 2009 but I forget exactly what else they include in there.

It was probably a grand strategy back then, no one could have predicted we'd have cheap Android consoles, tablets, smartphones and etc all vying for living room attention.
