So Microsoft has released their latest profits and you can only stand in awe at the amount of money that Microsoft makes…

Microsoft Office as a software suite alone brought in $4.7 billion in revenue in ONE quarter…. Granted that’s not profit but that’s a big number. The other software side brought in $4.0 billion in the quarter and suprisingly the Xbox side brought in $1.6 billion… So we are looking at around $10 billion a quarter, that’s $40 billion a year… that’s insane…

Anyway more importantly the Forbes.com article goes on to throw it’s name out of the water with the following bizarre comments..

“It has Sony‘s PlayStation 3 on the ropes in the United States”

and

“Moreover, the online gaming service Microsoft has built around the console promises to reshape the game business as Nintendo and Sony scramble to counter it”

So that would be the Sony PS3 that has outsold the Xbox 360 for the past 3 months and the Nintendo Wii which has outsold the 360 since it’s very first day on the market…

Now to give them some credit the 360 is still the top selling next-gen console in the States but the Wii is just about to overtake it in total sales and it’s more like the 360 that is currently on the ropes…
