Sony PlayStation, Microsoft Xbox Give Booster to July Retail Sales

TheStreet (Aug. 15, 2014) — Next-generation consoles helped boost gaming software and hardware sales in the U.S. since June. Video game sales, including hardware and accessories, jumped 16% from a year earlier to $514.3 million, according to market researcher NPD Group. That increase was driven by the continued success of Sony’s PlayStation 4 and Microsoft’s Xbox One, the latest iterations of their gaming consoles which had near simultaneous releases last November. PlayStation 4 held its lead as top-selling console, a spot it has commanded over Xbox for seven consecutive months. Sony said it has sold more than 10 million units worldwide so far.

China's Government Now Prohibited from Buying Microsoft Windows 8

TheStreet (June 5, 2014) — China has issued a ban on Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system, prohibiting it on government computers. A Chinese news agency reported that the ban by the Central Government Procurement Center was put in place to protect security after Microsoft ended support for its Windows XP operating system. It targets new purchases, stipulating that desktop, laptop and tablet computers bought by the government must use a different operating system. Microsoft said was surprised by the decision and is working with the Chinese government to ensure its products and services meet all government procurement requirements. Video provided by TheStreet
