chart is bogus -- it doesnt look like software profits for mega-things like Halo (plus all the related merch) are included in that chart. Or sales of XBOX LIVE. sales of the kinect and other hardware accessories, etc.

Something tells me MS did fine with the 360 overall

It's a basic comparison of the whole E&D division which included hardware and software last time I checked.

This. Chart is surprisingly accurate in fact.

So much for that PC platform support. They couldn't even keep the 2 games they announced going. Microsoft is really pathetic, all of those billions and they can't even make a halfway decent PC platform exclusive. Not like it was hard to see this coming with how monetized the game was.

What a fucking waste of Ensemble and the AOE franchise, love to see the shills try to spin this one.

Good thing we've still got Games for Windows Live!

With Win8 bombing hard I think MS is about to learn the very hard way that their neglect of the PC platform (Windows, Office, Games) is about to cost them dearly. The Xbox division hardly brings in any revenue.

And it seems the rumor of the next consoles not allowing second hand games to be run is starting to take form. I love how the industry tries to destroy itself at every turn.

The next consoles will have a reception as hot as Win8 did, mark my words. People will find that the next gen doesn't offer nearly enough over the current gen.

Expected this to happen after reading the Chapter 11 papers of THQ. Some messed stuff in there, starting with this.

The possibility of THQ simply dissolving, being cut up and sold as parts to the highest bidders, is now a lot more real. Fucking hell, the THQ management has even managed to fuck up Chapter 11.

The reports I receive still affirm that Win8 is closer to WinME numbers than Vista and this seems to further confirm it. If MS doesn't backtrack and do Win9 more like Win7 than 8 then I can see MS getting into real financial trouble. There's no reason whatsoever for anyone using a PC, gamer or corporation, to change from XP or 7 to 8. In fact there's encouragement to stay with XP and 7 since 8 doesn't add anything and in fact is more of a step backwards, especially when it comes to taking control away from the user.

Balmer may be hanging by a thread if these Win8 numbers don't improve soon.

I remember this guy (Phil Fish):

Fez is a console game, not a PC game," he states, emphatically. "It's made to be played with a controller, on a couch, on a Saturday morning. To me, that matters; that's part of the medium." I get so many comments shouting at me that I'm an idiot for not making a PC version. 'You'd make so much more money! Can't you see? Meatboy sold more on Steam!' Good for them. But this matters more to me than sales or revenue. It's a console game on a console. End of story."

He only recently started changing his tune after Fez underperformed on the consoles supposedly. He was also refusing to do a patch due to certification costs on the console, not sure if that ever happened or not. Not sure I want to put money into this when he has those kind of business practices, lots of other cool games to play.

That quote is truly ironic considering he's now turning to the PC to get more money. Holy shit this guy gives all indie devs a bad name.

This is the same guy who said stuff like this. He is the ultimate douchebag and a fucking hypocrite since now that Fez didn't make almost any money on the consoles he now changes his tune towards PC gamers.

I don't care how good this game is, I cannot in good conscience support a developer as arrogant and douchey as this fucker.

Do have to agree, this year's Steam sale isn't anything special. Took the opportunity to buy some stuff I haven't in previous sales but other than that there hasn't been any real killer deals, not that we haven't seen before anyway.

Wow, that's pretty unbelievable.


... because replacing text within a white box in photoshop is unbelievable?

I'm not saying Hammerpoint is a class act but come on, or has Titov crossed the line and gone full-on Paul Christoforo?


I certainly hope it's real. And that everyone hears about it.


Considering the type of company we're talking about it's a very strong possibility that it is indeed real.

SimCity 4 Deluxe edition is $5 on steam right now. Worth it?

IMO best SimCity title ever. Even better with mods.

The more Maxis open their mouth and reveal more stuff about SC, the more dreadful and horrible the new SC seems to be. This is on par on trying to explain that the new remake of Syndicate as a FPS is a good thing too.
