It's been a difficult battle that Microsoft is taking seriously, and there have been moments of relief - like after the holidays, when gamers could purchase several Xbox One gaming bundles.

"This progress, as well as the excitement we generated at E3 - with Xbox exclusive gaming content and backwards compatibility - demonstrates the building momentum that exists with the Xbox ecosystem," said Amy Hood, CFO at Microsoft, while speaking during a recent financial call.

The Xbox 360 and Xbox One sold 1.4 million units during Q4, which was a great bump from the 1.1 million units sold year-over-year. Even though trying to win the current generation console war might not be feasible at the moment, there is plenty of opportunity for Microsoft.
