With MS shooting themselves in the foot and Nintendo hurting for 3rd party support, will the Beastation 4 bring back sony from the grave?

When was Sony ever last place? Also, they are in the financial grave. Whether this console will bring them back has little to do with what you are talking about. Its about selling a console that is produced at a reasonable price and making sure you invest in games that will sell unlike Haze, Lair, SOCOM 4, etc.

To put it in perspective, Sony's PS3 sold 70+ million consoles yet lost $6.5 billion dollars while the NGC sold like 24 million and still made a profit...

I don't think anyone seriously counts Nintendo as part of the console war. It's sort of like in a world to itself.

Well, it was a console. Sold at the same time as both the 360 and PS3. It also competed for sales with the other two consoles. Since the Wii sold more units than the PS3 and 360, that's a win bub.

I had a Wii for all of two days before I got bored and sold it and can see this.

Where did you pull your numbers from ?

I know the PS3 lost a lot at the beginning ( but I don't think it was that much) but now they are making money the last few years.

And it's a miracle the PS3 even did so well with an over exspensive cosnole, nearly impossible to develop for early on, no games on launch and yet it has come back and is leading last time I checked overall.

So just imagine the PS4:

Cheaper then Xbone
More powerful then Xbone
Supposedly even easier to develop for then Xbone ( because Xbox has Esram)


So to me and the average person, Sony should be able to dominate MS easily and it would take a miracle for MS to beat Sony without a very early price drop and a lot better deal or overall package.
