  1. PlayStation 3 losses now over $1 billion - XBox is profitable


    Meanwhile the XBox division at Microsoft recorded a profit of $165 Million
    dollars.



    http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/technolo...1_billion.html

    In a statement, Sony said:

    In the game segment, operating loss increased primarily due to the loss
    arising from strategic pricing of PS3 at points lower than its production
    cost and the increase in PS3-related inventory write-downs recorded during
    the current quarter compared to the same quarter of the previous year.

    of nothing.

    Billions sunk into the whole project from beginning to end
    and nothing to show for it except some creating accounting
    that ignores the total cost.

    The difference is that Sony also sank Billion$ into the PS3 and they
    continue to lose billion$.

    Meanwhile game developers are running away from the PS3 and Sony needs to
    *beg* them to write games for their platform. And while Sony continues to
    lose major $$$ on every unit sold the go further and further into debt on
    this POS. Microsoft is at least making a profit on the XBox and it's just a
    matter of time before they recoup their R&D costs.
