Microsoft has reported its financials on the third quarter (January 1, 2017-March 31) of its fiscal year 2017, showing a revenue increase for its gaming division.

The company's gaming business showed a four-percent increase in revenue compared to the same period last year (to $1.928 billion), and Xbox software and services showed a seven-percent increase, "driven by continued adoption of digital distribution and a strong game lineup," according to Microsoft.

Our Take
There's not much to report here, and Microsoft's highlighting of active users sounds familiar to last quarter's report, although it's actually down slightly this quarter.
