Sponsored Links
330w ago - Well respected Acclaim boss David Perry has stated that because sony has sold the PS3 at a lost, they basically have no chance of making money on the PlayStation 3.

He added "if they release the PlayStation 4 and have an even more expensive console and raise the cost of games by ten dollars, that would not be good."

To quote: "Because of the cost of making the PlayStation 3 and because they sold it at a loss, Sony basically has pretty much no chance of making money on the PS3, because it's lost more money than they made during the entire peak of the PlayStation 2 - it's not going to happen again for Sony," stated Perry.

"If they release the PlayStation 4 and have an even more expensive console and raise the cost of games by ten dollars, that would not be good," he added.

When the Sony starts raking in cash from Home then this guy should talk about their financial situation. Sony is about to tap into a large market, as seen with second life. There are ton's of kids around the world who are going to be willing to spend real world money on virtual furniture and other crap. Not to mention a couple of "console selling" games are due out in the next 6 months or so.OH and Sony has implemented the hd video service which is no doubt making money.Business is a long run process. This guy will feel like an idiot in 2 yrs.

This guy is talking about a PS4 because he is an xbox fanboi and xbox is running into trouble with their dvd drive, seriously this is a great issue for microsoft and has to update its console because they didnt look ahead on this.

So he is trying to make things even by saying the Sony is already planning a PS4, maybe they are planning a PS4 but it will be out in a long long time.

sony i expect will at the very least break even with the ps3. It came out a long time ago now and they have bought out all the different types e.g 20G , 40G. i can see where your coming from the cost to make cancels the income but surely they would sell it to make a profit. maybe the latest updates may help like the new trophie system.

it all seems a lil dodgy to me.

Didn't know Microsoft actually hired fanboys to do their bidding. Way to go David. You sound like a total douchebag who doesn't know what he's talking about.

They can and they will.

1- They got blu-ray into the market, it won the HD War, Thus a great victory for Sony
2- Exclusive titles like Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Home, Motorstorm 2 And So On Will Highly increase the PS3 Sales.
3- PSN * Which Makes a lot of money btw from Premium downloadable content*
