Making profit on 20m sales beats selling 80m and barely making profit.

In the very short term, but selling 80m and not making a profit is a lot better for a companies potential and brand-power then selling 20m and making a profit.

The further your installbase drops the more of an uphill battle you'll have with your next device.

Let's take the PS3 for example, if that had only sold 20m units and not 80m, it might have been better for profits, but the PS4 wouldn't be doing nearly as well as it is now.
