Microsoft officials spoke in earnings meeting
The demand for the new generation game consoles of Xbox, which was launched in November 2020, continued to increase by increasing from the first day. Due to the current pandemic, people’s turning to products that they can spend more time at home has naturally affected the sales on game consoles.
Although this situation provided a good return for console manufacturers, manufacturers were left with stock problems. Witnessing this problem closely, the Xbox side thinks that they will be exposed to this situation for another period.
Making a statement on the subject, Microsoft’s finance manager Hood said, “We expect a significant demand for the gaming audience to continue to join the Xbox platform and for the Xbox Series X and S, there will still be a restriction due to supply.”
In addition, speaking at the earnings meeting, Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella stated that the game revenue exceeded $ 5 billion.
Nadella also; “The launch of the Xbox Series X and Series S was the most successful in our history, with the most devices ever sold in one launch month. Game developers also take advantage of this as they turn to us to reach more players and scale games using the power of our cloud. For the first time, we’ve exceeded $ 2 billion in revenue from third-party games this quarter. ” said.
