Microsoft Stocks Down Following Xbox One Reveal, While Sony’s are up Nearly 9% (Update: GameStop’s Stocks Down 5%)

Update: Possibly having to do with the Xbox One and it looking to force people to pay a fee to play used games on the system, GameStop’s stocks have taken a drop of about 5%, but it’s been fluctuating like crazy lately and has reached as high as 6% recently:


Original Story: Following the Xbox One event that recently finished up, the stock market has revealed that Microsoft is actually down around 0.70%, with Sony posting a rise of about 8.5%. Looking at their full numbers, Microsoft is hovering around a 34.83 a share and Sony is at roughly 22.68.

What these numbers could mean is that, after seeing everything the Xbox One has to offer, interest in the PlayStation 4 is higher than Microsoft’s new system, with investors worried about the direction Xbox One is taking.



With E3 just a few weeks away, it’ll be very interesting to see what happens to Microsoft and Sony’s stocks as they reveal more information about the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
