Everyone that has a console out says this, the reality is, they aren't losing money or else it wouldn't be worth the business venture. They said that they lost money on every single PS2 sale as well, and we know that was a load. They are still selling PS2 and games to this day.

And I highly doubt that there will be a new 360 within the next year or 2. With the fact that console gamers are willing to deal with lesser graphic's and everything than it's PC counterpart, they will squeeze the life out of this console.

The money comes in from the games and services MS and Sony offers.

I have nothing more of value to add to this thread I guess. I personally will never join the console community, as long as my PC is functional and upgradeable. Buying Xbox360 now sounds almost like voluntarily buying a ticket to a slowly sinking boat (even if getting used Xbox)

What is this crap I keep on hearing about Xbox720? - Fanmade fiction?

Yes, but at the same time, Money doesn't just goto MS and Sony from games, there are other "middlemen" getting their cut of that money too. There is no way it still costs the upward of $300 to manufacture a 360. Maybe the first 6 months after release in 2005, because of R&D and initally production, but not now, not 5 years later. They are making a killing. Don't let sites and reviews or anything make you think otherwise, they also make money of promoting said products.

For me the console world is beyond backwards, I disowned the 360 in 06-07, inferior at the time was an understatement, so now for me differentiating it from even a PS2 is literally nitpicking. And they make us wait SO LONG for the next line up which most likely be just be wii2 on steroids. WOW! wont even have gpu's on par with current high end PC, how could they? They would cost a fortune & overheat. I just despise this money reaming, milking all quantity industry.

Fixed. Na but in all seriousness, that is the purpose of business, to make money. If people are content with it, even if it is just parent's buying them for their kids, there will be a market and they will produce it to sell it. I play games on both personally. I really don't see a purpose for a PS3 tho. I can watch blu rays on my PC too.

Nah, they aren't going to release a successor in 2012. I bet they'll announce the replacement in 2012 however, and start releasing details, but an actual Console release is a ways away.


Off Topic: I'm getting the XBOX 360 MW3 Edition Console to replace my Elite 120GB that finally gave up the ghost after 3years Sadly, I have to wait until Nov 8th for it to show up on my door
