Crazy Talk about PS3 Shipments

so. there is no way sony can ship 100 million units this year. kotaku has to be pulling yasuda’s quote out of context.

even if sony only took a loss of $100 (it’s going to be way more than that) on each console, that’s a loss of $10,000,000,000 this year. do you see how many zeroes that number has? on revenue of $60 billion in ps3’s alone? yeah. whatever.

i would imagine he’s referring to over the life of the ps3.

heh. funny. 100 million ps3s this year. that’s just stupid, irresponsible ‘journalism.’

    Nah, it’s probably just as m3mnoch stated, it was taken out of context. If not, then not only is it preposterous, it is presumptuous as well. Not to mention down right assinine economically for Sony.

    i just found this tidbit –

    100,000,000.00 x 900.00 = 90 Billion dollars in materials….for projected sales of 50 Billion dollars.

    Yes, that is a $40 Billion dollar loss. Good job Ken!

    Keep in mind though m3mnoch, the loss won’t actually be 40 billion dollars.The initial cost will be (a certain amount – as it is unknown how much the PS3 will cost and how much Sony will subsidize each PS3), however, if the PS3 is mass produced, this drastically, drastically reduce the production costs. But yea, otherwise your totally right about Sony loosing money (a lot $$), moreso then Microsoft on the Xbox360

    heh. yep, yep. that number was mostly for dramatic effect. assumably, someone along the line would cry out “STOP THE HEMORRHAGING!!!!”
