And the Wii U lost $97 million in the Q1 quarter this year, but it will continue to do just fine due to some up and coming games.

Playstation has lost money as well. Everyone has. That's what the beginning of new gen consoles does. So begone.

I can't even imagine. I lost $20 once and it was devistating. These guys are EXPECTING to lose hundreds of millions because it's "normal". I wish I could just misplace a few mil and shrug it off a day later.

Yeah, but if losing that twenty meant you'd make a hundred you'd do it in a heartbeat.

It's easy to brush things off when you only choose to acknowledge one side of everything.

Microsoft were expecting to either break even on each console sold or make a small profit.

That's not happening now probably due to factors like losing the kinect.

Reading Forbes and understanding what they're saying is two different things.

Didn't Microsoft used to lose billions, in the 1990s and 2000s, over the monopoly they used to have?

That's the problem with Microsoft this gen, they had completely foolish and unrealistic expectations.

Then again they managed to have people pay for online last gen so yeah...
