Digging through Microsoft's third quarter earnings uncovers evidence that suggests sales of the company's Xbox 360 games console may be past their peak, falling dramatically over the last quarter.
Microsoft sold 1.4 million consoles during January to March of this year, a precipitous drop of 48 percent compared to the same period last year. This in turn resulted in a fall in revenue for the Xbox business of 33 percent, down to $584 million. Sales of the Kinect motion controller were also down, but Microsoft did not state by how much.
