"the company had a mediocre quarter to begin fiscal 2013. Revenue in the first quarter fell by 8% and operating income fell by 26% year-over-year, while earnings per share fell from 68 cents in the first quarter of fiscal 2012 to 53 cents in fiscal 2013."

stating ones opinion is being butthurt? okay typical cow logic yet again.

Right heres a few things

1.This gen is starting to hit a saturation point, you cant expect everything to match the peak of the lifecycle we're in the tail end of this generation and its over in under a week aswell strangely is it not? revenue will drop for the time being until the next console releases.

2.MS are probably going to see an increase in profit this quarter considering halo 4 just launched and made $300m in the first few days which is a good thing for them and actualy disproves the doomed theory.

3.In 99.9% of topics i've actually never seen you make a rational arguement, it always degenerates to either butthurt or the usual spam the exclusives that have become vapour ware (TLG and FFXIII-VS being cow's favourite choice of damage control).

gee i cant wait for another reply with why you so butthurt because you dont have the actual cognitive reasoning or balls to form a decent arguement.

It's common sense. One technology doesn't replaces another it just moves forward. Or are games like GOW2 lost in the generation limbo?? No it is a sixth generation game. No need to arbitrarily assign dates when common sense works.

you are the one despararte to drag this generation on as long as possible. i'd wager you'd be saying something different if PS3 was leading the race and the PS4 was first out of the gate in a few days.

MS had less profit because a lot of people were not buying pcs because they were waiting on Windows 8 machines. Oh, and this topic has a very poor premise when a lot of companies traditionally have mediocre quarters this time of year. The numbers for the 4th quarter will be much stronger for MS.

Listen dumb, dumb. Sony is more than just music, movies and games. They have the entire Broadcast market in their pocket which is worth more than their gaming division.

you just said the current gen only ends when they stop making the last of the current gen consoles, so by your logic, the ps2 is a current gen console and the PS3 and 360 / wii are only became this gen a few weeks ago.

ok look, there have been talks of the nextbox already running into hardware issues, now this (which means they will cut costs, instead of spending more to fix these issuess), its pretty much safe to assume that xbox will fail next gen

thats why the prototyping stage exists, is to find flaws and fix them.Those flaws will be out the product by the time it hits the market or that much of a low failure rate that its only an issue to people like yourself.

Should maybe learn a bit more about a product developement lifecycle and prototyping it might help you understand why your completely wrong...AGAIN.

Anyhow this arguement backfired spectacularly on your buddy PinnaclePEE.

that sales thread was dumb, the source article wasn't even right, which is why there were so many questions being asked, plus that tintedeyes character is about as usefull at answering questions as you are at giving out non-butthurt replies.
