A look at results from selected companies in the video games business:
Jan. 9: GameStop Corp., the world’s largest video game retailer, reports nearly flat sales for a nine-week holiday period that ended on Dec. 31. Sales of game software rose but sales of game consoles and other hardware slid. The company backed its fourth-quarter and full-year earnings guidance.
Jan. 19: Microsoft Corp. says revenue from Xbox 360 products and services grew 9 percent to $322 million, led by increases in consoles sold and higher revenue from the Xbox Live service. That was partly offset by reductions in sales of standalone Kinect sensors. Microsoft says it shipped 8.2 million Xbox 360 consoles during the latest quarter, up from 6.3 million a year earlier.
