I think so.

They are owned by Sony they get paid either way



it would seem unlikely that the game made a profit.

It made a hefty one. Don't let anyone tell you otherwies. There is no evidence suggesting the development cost 60 million. Just a blog from an "insider" who was usually wrong and no longer exists rumor...



well sony said that the game passed their expectations. they were possibly thinking that it will get resistance 2 sales.

Probably no, and what to blame? Sony didn't have Kevin Butler

and also like someone said, even if it didn't profit , Sony is going to pay them , its on Sony's money not the developers, thats one of the pros of being first party.

$27 x 2.26 million = 61 million (that's about the minimum they got from it)

There were rumors that development was about $20 - $40 million, so they profited.

27 seems awfully low for 1st party and you also arent taking dLC into consideration.

Exactly why I said minimum, I wasn't sure exactly what it was for first party but I know it's more. 61 million is the minimum amount they made right now, if development was as high as 40 million then they definitely profited.

Just answering the OP and showing how easily they profited on Killzone 2.

I also forgot to mention Sony sees money on every copy shipped not sold. KZ2 easily profitted and KZ3 will do even better!
