Devices and Consumer Other Performance

D&C Other revenue increased $255 million or 16%, due mainly to higher online advertising, Office 365 Consumer, and first-party video games revenue. Online advertising revenue increased $129 million or 14%. Search advertising revenue increased 23%, driven primarily by growth in Bing, due to similar impacts attributable to higher revenue per search and search volume. This increase was offset in part by a 9% reduction in display advertising revenue, due to continued portal traffic and monetization declines. Office 365 Consumer revenue increased $87 million, reflecting subscriber growth, and we ended the first quarter of fiscal year 2015 with 7.1 million subscribers. First-party video games revenue increased $79 million, due mainly to the launch of Forza Horizon 2 and the re-release of certain Xbox 360 titles.

D&C Other gross margin decreased slightly, due to a $267 million or 22% increase in cost of revenue, offset in part by higher revenue. D&C Other cost of revenue grew, due mainly to a $130 million or 21% increase in online advertising cost of revenue, reflecting support of online infrastructure. Cost of revenue also increased $57 million, due to higher first-party video games costs.
