What are you trying to say with the above?
Anyway, how is Merrill Lynch a "random analyst'? I hardly call one of the worlds largest investment firms unreliable. And the fact is, their analysis of of markets, products, ect. is used by millions of people for making investment decisions everyday, so I'd say they have a fairly good grasp of how to do this sort of thing, as well as reputation to look out for. And Isupply isn't a "random" company either. Their name is fairly well known and they are frequently cited by numerous publications such as the Wall Street Journal and Business Week, and additionally has the likes of dell and IBM as clients. The thing is I'm sure your research has told you that Merrill Lynch isn't a "random person".
But what I don't get is why your so adamantly trying to refute their cost analysis. It's a well know fact that consoles, excluding Nintendo, always sell for a loss at launch - of course I'm sure your research has already taught you that. But I guess you have some better source of information, and you must be smarter than people who work for a living doing this sort of thing everyday. However, I'm sure you wouldn't have a problem providing your research and reasoning to tear these people to shreds. Share the wisdom, right?
