By Aron Gerencser July 29, 2021

As far as raw numbers are concerned, the Xbox Series X|S is lagging behind the competition, and the newer Xbox models recently broke 6 million units sold.

However, this hardly translates to a failure. Microsoft has been bridging the gap between Xbox and PC for gaming, and many of its paid services extend to both platforms.

Chief executive officer Satya Nadella and chief financial officer Amy Hood spoke about the continued success of Game Pass, which keeps showing growth.

Microsoft has been posting significant year-on-year growth across the board. Despite moving fewer units than the competition, Xbox hardware revenue shot up 172% and gaming revenue grew by 11%.

The executives said that Microsoft is going "all-in" with games, and that those titles that support user generated content like Minecraft and Microsoft Flight Simulator are earning double.

As Xbox is posting strong numbers, the entire gaming industry is experiencing significant growth.
