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

Like for the PS3?


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.


Lol you can't be serious? Every PS3 sold has been making them a profit since 2010 starting at 41.6 Million sales. . They have sold 70.2 million as of September 30th 2012.

70.2-41.6= 28.6 million sold that make a profit.

Sony's TV department is what is killing them.

This doesn't translate into them making back the 5 billion they lost in the first place though. The profit they are selling PS3 at right now is nowhere near the deficit they were selling it at during it's launch. Sony will be lucky to make back half of that before PS3 production ceases.

Oh look, your entire point just went down the drain! Those ~30m PS3s would have to be sold at an impossible profit of about 160 bucks to negate the debt, but continuous price cuts erode most of these profits.

They are clearly talking from a gamers perspective, like gamers do.


From a gamer's perspective, we don't have to look much farther than at the Vita's barren release schedule.

Well know one knows how much profit the ps3 makes. Going back on topic though the vita is being sold for profit and has been since day 1. It's probably why they won't drop the price.

To determine how it's going to be multiple years from now? Do you think 3DS's empty release schedule in summer 2011 was indicative of where it was going to be now, or even years from now? Do you think no Vita game will come out after March 19th simply because there is nothing listed after that, lol?

I've been saying this all along. The PS3 was in the same exact state the first few years. Just shows how foolish most people are.

Plus the ~$3b from 2011, DAMN, that's a lot.
