C'mon man i'm just trying to bring some tiny shred of knowledge here, don't kill my buzz :(


on a serious note I actually liked the article, it was a good read. I tried explaining something similar to the ponies in another one of the 500 xbox sells division topics but alas, logic does not run deep with those trolls.

LOL I know, I am just hoping some random impressionable lad will see these articles and awaken to the wonderful world of corporate scumbaggery.

Guys, c'mon! You don't HAVE TO defend Microsoft. How about just acknowledging reality and discussing it like normal people?


Youre pathetic and delusional. Seriously stop and think for one second. 360 has been selling at a profit for years, xbox sells more software, xbox also get revenue from every month. Also 360 sold more units then ps3.

The $2 billion is the cost, you are ignoring the revenue that offsets these costs and MS has already made an offical post on this. Ponies fail at fake journalism once again.


360 sold more than ps3? And you were telling the other guy to google lol? Oh the irony.


Yes kiddo. Even more ironic since you dont realize that MS reached 80 million before sony. Learn to google.

i personally like this one. It's old but it rings true to investors. Sony may look favorable now, but they risk falling behind in 5 years.

thats the whole reason i always thought DRM (although too soon) was a good move on MS part.

I always wonder why no one acknowledges that in their "MS lost" rants.

2 billion is nothing, Microsoft can eat billions upon billions of dollars and still give us the best possible console, TC. The ESRAM is a lot more expensive than GGDR5 and it's top of the line memory performance and complete system balance. You know what, Microsoft doesn't need first party studios, they'll just spend another billion and secure some exclusives. Microsoft is eatting these costs only because they're kind and honest people, they want to pass us the savings and the best possible gaming experience while they continue to eat billions upon billions each year.

Microsoft f****** rocks man

Doesn't sound like a successful business venture at all.


Explain why I would care whether any company I buy anything from is doing poorly financially.
