WSJ: ‘Microsoft to Shake Up Entertainment Group’

Nick Wingfield, reporting for the WSJ on the woes of Microsoft’s “entertainment division”, which includes mobile phones, the Zune, and Xbox:

Microsoft’s has [sic] fared better in videogames with the Xbox. Although it has lost billions of dollars on the business since entering the game console market over a decade ago with the original Xbox, it’s in second place in the market behind Nintendo Co.

That says it all. The part of this division that has fared better is one in which they’ve lost “billions of dollars”.
