Sony took a huge hit when the PS2 launched, a year later they were making tons of money thanks to software sales, its always like this. The money is really in the software, not hardware (well accessories are a good rev aswell).
It's like this alot with many services, Cell Phone companies take a loss per phone they sell but we make tons back for the service we provide. You really think it costs Cingular $50 a month perline? pfft maybe $10 (* 68 Million)
