Xbox One Hardware Revenue Dropped 43% Last Quarter - SalesWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 01 March 2020 / 2,522 Views
Microsoft earlier announced their overall gaming revenue decreased 21 percent year-over-year, while Xbox content and services revenue also decreased by 11 percent. However, there was reason to celebrate with "Xbox Game Pass subscribers more than doubled this quarter," according to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella.
Xbox One hardware revenue did see a drop of 43 percent for the quarter ending December 31, 2019. The drop in revenue was due to the lower price of the console, as well as a drop in sales.
Xbox One hardware and software sales are expected to continue to drop throughout 2020 as gamers are waiting for the launch of the next generation of home consoles in holiday 2020.
