Highest Xbox fiscal year ever, and Xbox Series is tracking positional with the 360 on the table, Xbox is back! Phil did actually do the turn around, had some bumps on the way and some false promises but he did do it.

The game is changing, and I am not talking about cartridges.
I mean he achieved highest xbox revenue by absorbing other publishers revenue. The game is changing but only what parent company the money is going to.

And if they do shrink by 7 percent or more, what will you say then?

I don't think Sony has had a stronger year than this year in a long time. New horizon sequel, GT7, last of us remake, and God of war ragnorak....plus the megaton that is Stray :D

What will you think if they are showing any negative tracking YoY?

That goes to everyone posting their theories against MS in this thread.

Wouldn't it be even worse for Sony if their numbers are tracking any kind of negative when they have one of the strongest years for releases in the last few years? MS has had nothing for 2022 but are only 7 percent down in 2022, that's pretty damn amazing really compared to what I'm seeing from other companies vs YoY.
They will show negative tracking too. GT7 and Horizon were the previous quarter. I suspect everything to be down except subs. Keep in mind MS has the benefit of multiplatform releases, even PS exclusive releases, so when you say MS has had nothing for 2022 you mean xbox has had nothing for 2022. xbox has had nothing but MS as a publisher and its financials have.

Is MS only having a 7 percent decrease in revenue with such a quiet 2022 really a good thing?

Looks like he won't be saying anything.

Never heard that before. Is it this? And what did they do?

Was started by Reagan, they rig the markets to encourage growth and stop drops they buy index futures at a high price to tip up shorts and hedge funds so stocks don't go down.

For example XLF drops from 50 to 38 and then they say Index futures predicting the price will "be 70 dollars in 5 months" that's a basic version of what they are doing.

Sounds illegal. As if the stock market can’t be disconnected enough from the reality as it is.

I think before the pandemic people had the illusion that the market reflected reality, it was during it, that we got to see just how disconnected it actually is.

It in no way reflects the reality of any economy, and you can watch big firms move money around like a wave where as they move ppl try to catch it on the way up and drop it before it cones down.

It's the biggest ponzi scheme out there, but you have to buy in if you want to get ahead.

Yeah but at the same time things can go south because of real world events so it’s not an isolated bubble. I’d say a stock’s value is a reflection of the investors hopes and dreams for the future rather than the real value or realistic potential of the company in question.

I’ve jumped in early on the stock market and has been lucky to ride this strange wave when it essentially just rolled at one direction. But today I wish I was out… Well, the last couple days has been fun but for the year I’m down -21%. Trying to buy and sell to crawl back up again but it’s hard when things can move at either direction seemingly for no reason at all.

It's not illegal because Congress and Reagan made it legal, and the President and Congress still support it today. It was illegal though, until they made it not. Now you know why the older financial guys say it's rigged all the time. BTW, Plunger team isn't th only "team" btw.
