[QUOTE="TeeniestChaos"]Then the PS3 hit, and despite the early blueray support and top-notch graphics, it hasn't sold as well as its competitors.Kravyn81According to who? You? PS3 and 360 global sales are virtually neck and neck, so...yeah....
The PS3 is 2 million units behind the 360 and almost 28.3 million units behind the Wii as of this writing. So yes, it hasn't sold as well as it's competitors. I'm not knocking the system - I think the PS3 is great. But sales wise, it is still in last place for this generation. As you've alluded to, though, Sony's current financial troubles aren't really a result of its game division - PS3 is still really profitable:
Recently Sony stock was downgraded to BBB status by Standard & Poor (second lowest ranking possible), and has been similarly downgraded by other ranking systems. Investers don't like the risks Sony is taking in the digital camera markets and mobile markets, and investor appeal may affect gaming decisions.
