Microsoft’s fourth quarter and full 2016 financial report has been revealed and though specific sales numbers haven’t been mentioned, it still offers an idea on where the Xbox brand stands.

Hardware revenue is down by 33 percent and while it’s likely due to less consoles being sold, it’s also important to note that consoles have been priced lower than in the past. Gaming revenue fell by 9 percent year on year or $152 million while Xbox Live monthly active users increased by 33 percent to 49 million users overall. Roughly three million users became active since the firm’s third quarter 2016 results.

Company revenue is at $20.6 billion for the quarter, reflecting a decline of seven percent year on year, while net income is $3.1 billion. Total revenue for 2016 is $85.3 billion while net income is at $16.8 billion.

Will the hardware revenue see better numbers in the coming year especially with the Xbox One S out in August? Stay tuned in the coming weeks to find out.

    Well I’m pretty sure nobody’s going to buy a console (original) especially if the new one is right around the corner.

      im selling my X1, already pre ordered the S. I know at least 20 people who are doing the same for the 4K upscaling and the HDR just that justifies the purchase, still Sony fanboys like to think MS is not doing XBox anymore, what gives them that idea? with three Xbox consoles they are but doubling down on hardware.

    Well I’m pretty sure nobody’s going to buy a console (original) or otherwise, especially after hearing the inevitable news that Xbox hardware manufacturing is about to end…because duh…nobody’s buying the stupid console.

      im selling my X1, won’t be pre ordering the S. I know at least 20 people
      who are doing the same for the simple reason that MS isn’t selling any Xbox consoles, and the future looks bleak, but still MS fanboys like to think MS is still doing great, what gives them that idea? with three Xbox consoles they are but doubling down on failure.

      starters you dont have an Xbox One, second your reason for not owning and Xbox is because they are not selling? that is very smart friend, I though console were to play games not brag about which one is selling best, just see the immediate lineup for both PS4 and Xbox One, im not talking about 2020 im talking about winter 2016, pretty bleak for the PS4 blind fanboy.

      The only company with a future in consoles is Nintendo since they aren’t scamming their consumers with 32X like add ons like $ony.

      Give me more of those delicous $ony Drone Tears

    • One The One

      You don’t have an Xbox One. Retarded.

    • Mr Xrat

      Xgimps are finished.

  • Nintengods

    No one will miss Xbox
    No one will miss Playstation
    Everyone will play Nintendo and forget they ever existed
