It's the fact of the matter when game developers run into a problem, they will get no support from Microsoft. It's not because OpenGL is bad, khronos has always been two steps ahead of Microsoft.
That's not true... OpenGL 3.0 was a mess.

On a side note I thought AMD was the manufacturer of both the CPU's and GPU's of these next gen consoles? If this is true then i doubt AMD should be even thinking about losing profits to NV.
AMD makes APUs for all 3 next gen consoles.
Just because you make things, it does not always mean you making profits.

nvidia is 3.14 (pi) times as valuable as AMD. They're obviously selling a lot more GPUs since that's most of their business. The chart makes perfect sense. The PS4/Xbox one won't be changing these figures anytime soon.
That's not quite true... Nvidia could also be making more per GPU sold.
GPGPU and Tegras are also parts of their business... I don't remember what their SEC filing looks like though.
