Microsoft financials: 1.1M 360s shipped, XBL membership up 15%
Microsoft has announced revenues for its Xbox 360 division were $292 million for Q4 of FY12, which ended on June 30. This is a 20% increase compared to $1.7 million the prior year. For full-year 2012, the Entertainment and Devices Division grew 8%.
The growth was attributed to the addition of Skype to the division.

For the company as a whole, Q4 sales of $18.06 billion for the period ending June 30 were reported, up 4% over last year. Still, the firm reported a net loss of $492 million, or 6 cents per share for the quarter, which was in line with expectations.
