Microsoft Makes 20 Billion Dollars of Profit for Q1 as Xbox Grows 16%
 

 
Microsoft Corp. shares closed just shy of a record Tuesday, but the software giant still set an impressive new high after the session that pushed the shares toward a new peak.

Microsoft MSFT reported fiscal first-quarter earnings of $20.5 billion, or $2.71 a share, up from $1.82 a share a year ago and topping its quarterly profit record — set in the previous period — by more than $4 billion. Microsoft noted that about $3.3 billion of its profit was due to a one-time income-tax benefit related to the transfer of intangible products, but said earnings without that benefit would have been $2.27 a share, still easily higher than expectations.

Revenue increased to $45.3 billion from $37.15 billion, as cloud sales jumped by almost $4 billion from a year ago and personal-computer revenue handily beat expectations despite a reported slowdown in PC shipments. Analysts on average had predicted earnings of $2.08 a share on sales of $44 billion, according to FactSet.

good for them



not sure why they're bragging about hardware revenue going up, considering absolutely nobody wanted an xbox one. It had nowhere to go but up

also, gamepass is only up 2% from a whole year ago. Guess folks are growing tired of those dollar menu download and play once games they offer.

Ehh, to be fair, that's Microsoft as a whole, most of that money is from PC sh*t and the cloud

Xbox is definitely worth it to MS at this point though...Them taking gaming seriously and playing nice has allowed them push azure on these gaming companies which helps the mothership MS

There's not much here. They made 3.7billion in revenue. No mention of how much in profit. The rest are percentages with no hard numbers so theirs no context. Their gamepass and 1st party is categorized as "showing growth". This is just mostly obfuscating. I'm talking about the gaming division. You can barely call this transparency in comparison to Nintendo and Sony.

Aren't alot of people out there you included always saying MS has no games? So now that the first party games are coming and they have to rely less on third party that's now a bad thing?

I was laughing at that argument on Neogaf when this news first come out.

First it was they don't have games, now that they have games and don't have to rely on third party for product sales as much its an issue

I rarely even give a sh*t about sales threads since you have things like Animal Crossing & Mario Kart 8 making all the money software wise - but the whole goalpost shift on that sh*t is hilarious to me.

Good for the folks at Microsoft I guess, I just want the games regardless of the platform - i'm buying on PC/Nintendo/Sony/MS

You are a idiot sir that just means less money is being spent on Fornite, Apex & Warzone. If you going to talk business know what you speak of. If there is 25 million ps5 consoles and only 588k copies of Reternal sold and 1 million of Ratchet & Clank who really isn’t buying games. If you have a base that is larger than switch there is no excuse for those games not to sell like Nintendo’s does then again there is a reason why ole Jimmy is porting everything to PC. One day you’ll have enough money to afford everything.

So they can make sh*tty versions of all Sony’s IPs?

That’s like DC taking over Marvel. We all know the result

more cap from tom warren

and this? "Bungie is relying on Microsoft's cloud to scale and operate its games."

lol @ microsoft still trying to act like the cloud is doing anything significant to their games

like for how long are they going to try and act like that's some ace up their sleeve?

they said the same stuff last gen and then put out stuff like sea of thieves and crackdown 3
