Microsoft has announced its financial results for FY 2013 and the Entertainment and Devices division is doing pretty well. They have managed to ship 9.9 million 360 units for fiscal year 2013.
Their official statement can be found below:
Entertainment and Devices Division grew 8% for the fourth quarter and 6% for the full year. During the quarter, transactional revenue within Xbox LIVE grew nearly 20%, and we unveiled our next-generation gaming and entertainment console, Xbox One.
EDD revenue increased $134 million, or 8%, primarily due to higher Windows Phone revenue, offset in part by lower Xbox 360 platform revenue.
Windows Phone revenue, reflecting patent licensing revenue and sales of Windows Phone licenses, increased $222 million.
We shipped 1.0 million Xbox 360 consoles compared to 1.1 million during the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012.
EDD operating income increased $142 million, due mainly to higher revenue.
The company as a whole generated revenues of $77 billion, and the operating income increased by 23% to $26 billion.
Microsoft earlier pointed out that Xbox One pre-orders were doing really well and has already eclipsed Xbox 360’s pre-order numbers at the same stage.
