I wonder if the 360 covered that loss.

It's negative news about about Microsoft. Of coarse it's been posted. More than once.
I hate popular stuff, and that makes me really, really cool.

pocket change compared to how much MS lost with 360 at first because of red ring.

Every console manufacturer loses money on the hardware, dude. It's a given in the industry.

Once they get the console in your home it's like a Trojan Horse. It's worth it to take a loss on the hardware so they can make a bundle on the software and advertising and such.

Not a good look investors already want to close shop on the gaming division.

Not really newsworthy, the start of a new gen is always a money sink for the first year or two. Wii was an exception, not the rule.

It's not a really bad thing. Sony is clearly winning in sales, but lost 200mil as well. It's just how consoles are in they're first few years.

I thought it was obvious consoles were always sold at a loss...
