The PS3 outsells the 360, and now Sony is finally turning profit again

How do you guys feel about that? When it was announced the PS3 surpassed the 360 in sales, the response from some was "So what they are losing money!". Well, for the first time since 2008, they are out of the red and turning profit again.

I don't think it could even be written in Hollywood how perfect the timing is for Sony to be making a comeback really. If new consoles are getting shown at E3 with the next PlayStation being unveiled, they'll be announcing it in great form and showing a lot of promise now.

Its nice to see them in a good position again, especially since they have been great to gamers with all the exclusives and free online play.

Sony shutting up shop in the states for walking around money fills us with little hope.

And Sony said the PS3 is still dead last.

You aren't allowed to say good things about Sony on this board, TC.

It's good news imo but it doesnt mean a lot to me. The only thing that matters to me is that all 3 consoles performed admirably this gen.

I've had my ps3 for 4 years and the console being in last never hindered my fun while playing video games. The wii had some great exclusives that I loved and even though I only briefly owned an xbox, without its conpetition sony first party games might not have been as great as they are.

Overall I think its been a great gen and am happy to see sony pull out of their slump.
