The chart isn't accurate. For one Sony had losted billions in 2009, 2010, 2011, and $4.6 million in loses in 2012. They reported that themselves. Microsoft said they were debt free with their XBox back in 2011, so they were no longer in the red that year and beyond. So the numbers don't jive here. I don't know about Nintendo. They were making profits off their Wii from day one.

No Sony has made billions of dollars whereas Microsoft has lost billions.


Lol.  Sorry?

($2,889,000,000)

Some Thoughts:

In the past decade, 06-15, Sony lost$3.3B, Nintendo made $15.5B, and MSFT made $3.1B

The PS3 years (06-13) lost $3.6B, 360 years (05-13) made $1M, and Wii years made $15.5B



And Nintendo is still finding ways to profit. They've had like 1 or 2 years of no profit out of like 30 plus. They are an extremely small and efficient company. They may not massive studios that are able to pump out huge games that sell tens of millions very often, but because of their smallness and how successful their games usually are they are able to stay in the green. Sony and particularly Microsoft could learn a lot from Nintendo about how to stay profitable even during the bad times.

The GBA had excellent sales in its own right, it could have reached 100m units if the DS hadn't appeared so early.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
