Default MS games division profit: $165million vs. Sony games division profit: $-841 million

Interesting article talking about only MS game division numbers.

"Tech giant Microsoft has announced revenue of $13.76 billion for the quarter which ended September 30, 2007 -- a 27% increase over the same period last year. Profits were up to $4.29 billion from $3.48 billion in 2006."
