    I will bookmark this thread and look at it again in 2 years. Then we will have more data. In the meantime we can all have our views - and we might all be wrong.

    MS is going to the bank.

    Revenue $ 73,723 (2012) $ 69,943 (2011) $ 62,484 (2010) $ 58,437 (2009) $ 60,420 (2008)

    Oh hey... Microsoft done gone and smoked some more stupid pills.

    Next-generation Xbox reportedly requires Internet connection just to play games

    I like their stuff, but just... no. Between this and the likeliness that used games won't be able to be used on the XBOX, its likely that the PS4 will be the de facto console of choice.

    I certainly hope not, because NOTHING comes anywhere NEAR a powerful PC for gaming.

    Wenda.

    Their fiscal year ends in June so maybe everyone was waiting on Windows 7 release in Oct.

    That's all before Windows 8 was released. It'll be interesting to see the next results.

    I thought the US fiscal year ended towards the end of the year.

    End of June for MS and that is fairly standard.
