Fair point on ratchet and I honestly don't know the figures.  I just know with spider 2 people keep saying it was 300 million to develop via data mining while ignoring the same data said it has a 33% profit margin not including DLC and the inevitable PC release.  We live in an odd world when $100,000,000 in profit is bad.  

Yeah Spiderman's definitely done well. AAA spending is fine if you're something like a Sony flagship, COD, GTA, etc where you can reliably bring it huge numbers. It just becomes problematic when you're spending that same amount on a game that might only sell a few million.

I have no idea how accurate data mining numbers are, but a quick Google search has ratchet's profits north of $60,000,000..  

Basically, imho, sony's rationale is absurd.  They make $150,000,000 million on two games and the conclusion is layoffs.
