Default Who here said the PS3 would cause Sony's demise?

I'm happy for Nintendo, but Sony is a beast.

Quote:
Sony just announced its Q4 2006 profits, which dropped by 5.3% compared to 2005. The games divion lost $441 million in the last quarter alone, mostly due to the costly PS3 manufacturing process. Sony is selling the PS3 console at a big loss, estimated production cost is over $900. But itís not all bad news, as Sonyís other businesses did quite well to compensate for the loss. Their HDTVs and digital cameras, as well as successful movies like Casino Royale 007, contributed to an overall Q4 profit of $1.3 billion. This is significantly higher than Nintendoís record profits of $991 million for all of 2006. Analysts are still doubting the PS3 becasue of the weak start, resulting in Sonyís stock taking a modest hit on the Japanese market today.
And for those who are waiting to buy a PS3 like me....

You posted in the wrong area. The PS3 is a console.

Doesn't the PS3 have a nvidea graphics card in it? I think they said it was similar to two 6800gt's. Blue-Ray disc drive and for under $500.00. I don't play console myself, but economically it sounds like the way to go.

Actually, I believe Nvidia said it was equal to dual 6800Us

Did someone really say that the PS3 will be the demise of Sony? I don't think I know one person who doesn't own a Sony product. I just got a new Bravia in the house, plus I recently bought a 400 dollar sony ericsson cellphone... They could probably survive on Bravias alone.

the PS3 GPU is something close to the G70, which was around twice as the 6800 line. You also have to take in to account that the 360 GPU is closer to the R600 in design, which for comparison is something like the G80.

That sounds about right although I'd say RSX is like G71 since it's 90nm. Sony should have gave nvidia the go ahead to make their GPU from day 1. I have no doubt nvidia would've gave them a better solution.

I think the old idiom "All good things come to those who wait" is especially true with these next gen consoles. The first gen 360s had heating problems and many ppl lost their launch day systems. Now with PS3, lack of strong launch titles, high pricepoint and the speculation over blueray is causing many ppl to wait out till there are better titles and momentum for blueray.

QFT. the PS3 will rise from the ashes eventually. until then, its fun to laugh at Sony while they struggle. but rest assured, they will come back strong.
