Xbox Looses Less Money In 2003 Holidays

Microsot's Home and Entertainment division, the branch of the software giant responsible for the Xbox, PC games, and other consumer software and hardware, lost slightly less money in the October-December quarter for the third year running in 2003. Quarterly profit and loss statements released today show the division losing $394 million during the quarter last year, compared to a $412 million loss in 2002, despite a small drop in revenue from $1.33 billion to $1.27 billion. Revenue from the Xbox specifically increased by 2%, from $160 million to $175 million, while PC gaming revenue fell by $78 million, an 18% drop. Higher Xbox software sales, increasing by $175 million, helped offset the effect of a 6% drop in hardware sales ($37 million) and hardware price drops ($123 million) earlier in the year. Over the latter half of 2003, July through December, Xbox revenue increased by $68 million, a 6% rise, boosted over that period by increased hardware sales -- in 2003, Microsoft launched its holiday sales promotions earlier than in 2002, so their effect was felt more in the July-September quarter.
