Slowing Xbox 360 Sales Offset Microsoft’s Gaming Gains.

We’re just a few days from the launch of Halo 5: Guardians, but one of the people responsible for ensuring that blockbuster will have a robust network for online multiplayer has left Microsoft.The company mentions that the monthly active users on Xbox Live have increased to 39 million, although Xbox hardware revenues were down due to lower volumes of Xbox 360 sold.

This means that online multiplayer games are showing an error, customers can’t create new Xbox Live accounts or sign in to their existing accounts, and even single-player games such as the new Assassin’s Creed Syndicate are unplayable because they require an online server connection. In an updated report, Venture Beat said that Microsoft resolved the issues and the Xbox Live service is back up and running, but it seems that it’s not functional for everyone just yet. While with Microsoft, Neustadter helped guide the creation and development of Xbox Live as a premiere online gaming service, and he helped grow it to more than 39 million monthly active gamers. Neustadter did not indicate anything about what he would be doing moving forward, but if he is taking a break, it certainly is a well deserved one for all his hard work helping to maintain Xbox Love over the last almost 15 years. Amy Hood, Microsoft’s chief financial officer, mentioned the offset in gaming revenue during the call, saying the company saw growth both in Xbox Live services and its first-party game portfolio in spite of declining sales for its last-gen system.

IGN mentioned that Xbox Live Gold members on Xbox One can save money on “Quiplash” and “Tembo the Badass Elephant” with 30 percent and 35 percent discount respectively. “@Xbox is Xbox live down again?

Because, I mean, REALLY???” It seems likely that the Xbox One isn’t really close to that number and so now the company is going to look where it can for positive numbers.

In the same period past year Microsoft reported Xbox sales of 2.4m units, so a 17 per cent decline – on the presumption it refers to unit sales – would point to sales this time of around 2m for the period. We’ll post another update when more information becomes available.” As always, it’s important to remember that these situations do not affect every gamer equally. According to Latin Post, latest Microsoft game console owners can avail “Saints Row IV: Re-Elected” 25 percent cheaper compared to its original price. The Personal Computing segment, in which Xbox and Windows 10 is housed, reported $9.4 billion in revenue (down 17%) compared to $11.2 billion year-over-year.

Note that for the quarter ended June 30th, Microsoft had reported a loss of $3.19 billion, on account of writing off Nokia’s $7.5 billion phone hardware business and $780 million of restructuring expenses. Neustadter claims that his “e” was the first gamertag ever created for the platform, and he was a regular co-host on the Major Nelson Radio podcast. During the live event, Microsoft made quite a few comparisons between the Surface Book and Macbook, as the device is aimed squarely at the high-end laptop consumer.
