It isn't. Revenue is not profit.



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

It is obviously Sony's part, this is their revenue and stated from their financial report.

I don't get how that's "obvious". The rest of the money could still be considered revenue by Sony, them having to pay it over to the publishers of the content doesn't change that.

fair enough. it was a quick reply on my part. Maybe you are right on 2nd thought. apologies.

Still a hefty profit being seen though

Because of suckers like me that look every week to see what is on sale, and end up buying a bunch of games half off that I will probably never get to.



So 2/3 of gaming revenue only from PSN and it could be even more than 2/3 on Xbox.

Anyone an idea about Nintendo?

Looks like ~100 billion yen for calendar year 2018, so below 10%.

An obscure football manager in Scotland once said this in a televised interview "statistics are like mini-skirts - they look good but hide the most important part"

Not saying it's the best quote ever but stuck with me for the sheer randomness factor.

I think it applies here, PSN could have more revenue than Nintendo, but how that actually translates to profit is unknown and is really the only thing that matters. Revenue for show, profit for dough!



Nice.
