    this means that sony wont have the money to make this happen even after the PS made money they couldnt make a deal better then MS. MS is the riches companies. most Companies dont make 75% of that money. the xbox should have made MS lose money but they made it back(made money from Halo, Halo 2, fable, other games and Live.

    Nintendo to Build 20 Million DS, Sony Cuts Back PSP Production
    Earlier this year Sony informed companies providing them with components for their PlayStation Portables to expect orders somewhere in the vicinity of 18 million units.

    However, in a recent meeting with these suppliers, Sony confirmed that it plans to manufacture 12 million units instead-- 33.3 percent less than originally projected. On the flip side, Nintendo is prepared to manufacture over 20 million of its Nintendo DS units throughout the fiscal year. (wj)

    keep doing your research, because the same is going for Xbox...

    Microsoft has sold about 8 million Xboxes to date. Sony has sold 60 million PlayStations.

    In addition, the Xbox continues to lose money. Lots of it.

    Oh wait... lost money.. hey Xbox :
    According to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Microsoft's Home & Entertainment division, where Xbox resides, lost $190 million in the fiscal quarter ended March 31, nearly twice the $97 million lost during the same period in 2002.


    Don't even think MS is superior in any way. Even if Microsoft has plenty of money, nobody wants to be second, and lose money on every machine they sell, even from the first day of selling their units.


    Sony is still number one, and MS is trying there hardest to just catch up. They won't with their current platform, and that is why they are trying to release their product before PS3.

    Bottom line, every company is losing money, the only problem is, is that Sony is still on top, and everyone else is playing catch up.

    yea, but that made my point MS is said to have lost $100 when a xbox was sold. and PS2 was said to lose $20 for every PS2 sold. but xbox had a little help to make that money back just look at this.

    Microsoft gives 3.46 billion reasons why it doesn't feel any Linux pain
    Microsoft just deposited another $3.46 billion to its bank account, ending it's most profitable quarter ever. Revenues rose by 7 percent year over year to 10.82 billion (32% profit margin).

    Champagne corks must be flying over in Redmond, as the Home and Entertainment business unit responsible for the Xbox had it's first profitable quarter ever. Microsoft cited strong sales of both Halo 2 and the Xbox Live expansion for the console as the reason for the bookkeeper bringing out the black ink.

    EDITED 1/28/05 11:11 AM (PST):
    Changed Halo 3 into Halo 2, as "confused" rightfully pointed out


    Edited 1/30/05 23.48 PM (MGSST): must get some sleep time

    Redmond changed from Redmount as our eagled-eyed visitors have spotted. Sleuth is far from eagle-eyed today, more like red-eyed from all the travelling and tired from all the work getting the skinny from the valley. Apogloies, apologsei, ap.....sorry. ;-)

    Edited 2/1/05 11:16 AM (PST): Last comment about the spelling in this posting. I don't know what came over me. Well, I do know that I've been battling a cold last week. But that surely doesn't justify any of the mistakes made in this posting. Things can only go uphill from here…. I hope.

    That has no issue in which company is smarter. MS just has a superior product WITHIN SOFTWARE. Just like any company with a superior product will reign over other companies. Sony has only PS as a branch off to rival other companies. This is not their concentration, although they still are number one.

    Also, Sony is not a computer program company. Sony is an eletronics based company. Which is where they are a "Smart" company. They are the number one based electronics company, and still number one electronics for US consumers. Also number 1 in Asia's top 100 brands. So where MS shines in software, Sony does in electronics. Would you have that comment if MS tried selling electronics. Hell no, because they would get out of that and concentrate back on what they know how to do. Sony can play outside their league and still portray a top notch, number one selling product, can't say the same for MS. MS has branched out plenty of times, only to scrap the idea cause they were not profitable and went back to the drawing board to develop better software ideas. Building a gaming system for MS is not a stretch, this was right up there ally and only made sense for them to go this route.

    As for fighting law suits you have to understand the principles of large conglomerates. When it financially sensible to settle out of court then you try to do it quickly and quietly as possible. MS has to do this on many reasons:
    1. Watchful eyes by the gov't
    2. It is cheaper to settle then to draw it out in court
    3. Why deal with it when they have more issues to deal with.

    Sony is concentrating on the lawsuit cause it is a must win, especially if we are talking about the Immerson ordeal. MS suing Sony for royalties which is complete bs. You know when to go to court and when to settle. It is all an financial decision that deems the basis if it is smart to draw this out or settle.

    they foght a copied right law which is eather true or fake. Immerson had something with a date. Immersion has agreed out of court settlements with Microsoft over the same issue to the tune of $26 million.

    Idiots.

    First off, it's already been revealed it will be for PSP and it's well into development and set for a September 05 release.

    Now for the next version of the game, that will be on Sony PURELY because Rockstar themselves PREFER sony. Rockstar continually say it themselves so why do you dick heads keep thinking they are going to ditch sony?

    Rockstar have made enough money to work at a loss and if you dickheads bothered to read up more than some stupid xbox nerds article you'd see they expect to work at a loss every time anyway and they dont give a shit. Aslong as its a good game they dont care. Everything is on Rockstars side so money isnt a problem.

    money is everything. why did Rockstar make a deal with PS2 to have GTA series come out for PS2 1st and then the xbox 2nd and PC. sony paid for that and why didnt sony get it for only PS2 easy Rockstar wanted to much money. and Rockstar loves windows they got gta on windows for the 1st 4 gta's(GTA,GTA2,GTAlondan61' and GTAlondan69'. rockstar perfer money and Sony its all about money. that is why FF 12 or what ever # it is, is going to be on xbox360 and PS3. i dont want it to be on but it is. and sega said money wouldnt be a problem and look they cant make a new consoles the DC didnt have may EA games on it and the DC didnt sell as well as the PS2.

    What Im saying is, I've read the head honcho of RS telling people over and over again RS dont have to worry about money. Because of shit like Sony being Sony. Of course they signed a lucrative deal but now they are established they wont leave Sony because of money. RS is probably the best example of a gaming company that makes GAMES that sell not games to sell since Rare.

    What it says a wait and See attitude.not to be pick until the consoles have alot of sales have gone. and not locked for the PS3

    they are looking at other options then Sony's PS3 but all next gen consoles it could be on the revolution at we know. if they are looking at diff options it most likely for to see who can offer a better money deal at this point. but they will also look at sales and no one knows which console will win. they will be looking for a great deal and not that happy with the corrent deal with sony(most likely money side of the deal).
