Microsoft profit dips following weaker Xbox sales

Washington, Jan. 25 (ANI): Microsoft Corp reported a dip in fiscal second-quarter profit, as weaker sales of its Xbox game system in the holiday quarter offset a solid start for its new Windows 8 operating system.

The world's largest software company reported profit of 6.4 billion dollars, or 76 cents per share, compared to 6.6 billion dollars, or 78 cents per share, in the year-ago quarter, Fox News reports.

Overall sales rose 3 percent to 21.5 billion dollars. (ANI)
