    What's more surprising is that people are still buying PS2 consoles :eek4:

    I think so. There are some nice bundles of the 250GB announced as well.

    Across all categories, the Xbox 360 platform contributed the most to industry unit and dollar sales as sales of 360 hardware, software and accessories comprised 32% of the month's revenues.

    Compared to last September, the PS3 was the big winner, more than doubling last year's sales. This portrays a very strong consumer reaction to the price decrease as August and September both realized a lift of more than 70% over the prior month. This is the first month that the PS3 has captured the top spot in console hardware sales.

    I dont think they are losing much if anything at all, its definitely less than the ps3, with a year head start and higher sales.

    Wii hasnt lost anything since launch.

    Not to mention what they lose on replacing/fixing their shitty consoles for 3 years from date of purchase.

    they frontloaded their losses in the first 2 years and now are turning profit.

    Sony hasnt shown any profit yet.
    They are both failures so far.

    they aren't losing jack. its a $50 piece of shit that RRODs after 2 months of use yet 1.52 million idiots apparently keep buying new ones. fucking unbelievable. all this while the best game of all time, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, was just released, yet probably won't even sell 1 million units just because people are so fucking stupid. Ugh.
