What Do XBL Fees Go Towards?

The subscription fees charged for access to Xbox Live. The revenue generated from advertisements on the dashboard. What does this money go towards?

They go towards making the consoles, paying the workers, charities, etc. and probably other stuff thats a secret.

Oh also its too run all the features for the xbox

Partnerships like w/ Netflix, BBC, YouTube for apps, investment in Kinect technology, the Dashboard updates we get.

All that stuff.

It also helps keep the overall price down on the hardware.

The Xbox LIVE Server Farms.

Fees go towards games, equipment, workers, security and a whole slew of other ones.

It goes to Microsoft Corporation. And I assume some of it goes to updates, security, A1 service, apps, support, new services, etc.
