Do you think in a couple years we will look back at all this and laugh?

PS3 is only 3rd place in the states and most of europe but in Japan it is 2nd.

The same kind of laughter as what happens now when people realize that Sony is still in the red on the PS3?

Maybe, except it will probably be a lot more wistful.



It doesn't matter if they took a loss on the PS3, they've more than made up for it with the money they get from developers and their own published games.

Plus, do you actually have financials stating they're still in the red for PS3? I'm guessing you're just talking out of your ***.

Contrary to popular belief, opinions can be, and often are, wrong.

and it's why for "next gen", everyone who is willing to buy a home console have pretty much said they're going with the xbox no doubt, but the PS4 is incredibly iffy.


All we have is speculation at the moment, so how is it iffy? Perhaps im wrong, but i thought the momentum has swung in favour of the ps3, because of the 360's insistence of ramming adverts all over the dashboard, plus the fact that seem to be more concerned with the whole multimedia experience, rather than games.

Well Sony lost $2.8B for the PS division in the most recent recorded FY...

Not a chance.

Even if Sony had $5 billion somewhere they sure as hell wouldn't invest it into Vita.About $5 billion is the number that Sony poured into PS3...PS2+PS1 profits gone.

its funny how people use psp and ps3 as example, thanks to japan ps3 is doing reasonably well to stay alive though, its still third place in all the other countries,.


Japan is PS3's worst area. PS3 is only doing as well as it is because of Europe.

even sony admits it and thats not counting that refer a friend and we pay you BS they're trying to desperately pull off


Guys clearly jd8531 knows all and we should follow him like sheep.
Sony said they were selling "at the low end of the spectrum" which means it was within their projections. When a company makes a product they say we hope to sell between x and y. If it sells greater then Y then great thats a bonus as they weren't expecting to sell that much. If it sells below X then they hastily price drop it or discontinue it. If it's in the middle they do nothing.

Nah. The PS3 caused Sony to lose $5b and is one of the main causes for Sony's terrible financial situation that is threatening to destroy the entire company. If this happens again, Sony is gone. It's always hilarious when people reassure themselves with "look how the PS3 turned out!", not realizing what a huge disaster the PS3 is for Sony.

The Vita sold 1.200.000 units in week 1. - Sailor Goon
76.322 to 70.744 is a 70% drop. - Sailor Goon

They are clearly talking from a gamers perspective, like gamers do. Nobody here works for Sony and nobody here has been hurt or affected by the financial problems the PS3 has brough Sony.

Only Sony (or fanboys looking to score points in the "My company is doing better than your company!!!" wars) should care about how much the PS3 has cost them. The gamer should care to the extent that it prevents the launch of the next system, which PS3 clearly hasn't.
