Google values Xbox at $4 bil

Google's (GOOG) Motorola Mobility, in a patent trial, says it should receive $4 bil a year from Microsoft (MSFT) for use of its patents in Xbox video game consoles. Google estimates Xbox will make $94 bil though '17. The companies disagree on how much the patents used by Microsoft are worth; Microsoft says it should pay Google about $1 mil a year, but Google says the patents are worth as much as $4 bil a year.
