Once again though...it is hard to measure the true losses. If blu-ray is very successful in the future, that will be because of the ps3. However, that won't be included in the ps3's #'s. Also, how much does the ps3 help Sony's other departments? e.g. HD tv's, etc.?
As I said, it's the only reason I bought my Sony HD tv. W/O my ps3, I wouldn't have bothered going HD or even getting a Sony if I did (probably would have gotten a Samsung or Toshiba)
Regarding Blu-Ray, I'm a bit confused. Sometimes, Sony fanboys say that Blu-Ray is not only Sony's format, and that the numerous other interested companies from the Blu-Ray association will make its cost go down even without competition from HD-DVD. Then some other times, we hear people saying that Blu-Ray's royalties will make Sony recoup their massive losses with the PS3.
Which one is it, does Sony get a big share of Blu-Ray's royalties or don't they?
