If Sony failed the PS3, Nintendo failed the NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Sega failed everything and MS failed the original Xbox.

Yeah in a way, but only at first. The fact they didn't give up on their project, it's not a failure. A failure is when you abandon the ship, then watch your ship sink into the deep ocean from afar in a lifeboat. There's nothing wrong in filling up the holes with wood at first then reinforce it later with metal after the storm. That's what sony did and that's the reason why PS3 is doing so well right now.Commitment.


Very well said. Could not agree any more.  :)

If you are going to use some twisted logic like this, at least make sure that it still obeys one consistent rule.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

You do know that the NES and SNES won their generations right. Also everyone says that MS failed the 1st Xbox so I don't see what your point was.

I think AaronSOLDIER is directly referring to the number of consoles sold during each of their respective lifetimes; each totaled a lesser ammount sold than the current PS3 hardware sales tally.

Yes but the industry has grown immensely since then. However he is right on the N64, GC, Xbox and all of Sega's console's besides the Genesis/Megadrive.

YES PS3 is a business failure if we see as it will never make a penny

But counting in blu ray royalties maybe its not!!!

On the other hand on the games side its a huge success!



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

Much as I love my PS3 (only current gen home console I own), I voted yes. It could've been a much more successful machine, Sony thought they could put anything at any price with the PlayStation brand on the shelves.

He's wrong about the NES in that case.  It completely won its generation and has sold more than the PS3 so he doesn't have a leg to stand on.

My advice to fanboys: Brag about stuff that's true, not about stuff that's false. Predict stuff that's likely, not stuff that's unlikely. You will be happier, and we will be happier.

I have the most epic death scene ever in VGChartz Mafia.  Thanks WordsofWisdom! 

Quick question:

If Sony lost monies with each PS3 sold, wouldn't the PS3 be further in the hole if they sold more consoles?
