    .... and they make their money from later years, when less systems are sold, and more games and accesories are sold. That's where the money is.

    Lose money on the hardward, make money on the software. Like others said, in time it will be profitable.

    Accessories are where the money is in every product these days anyway. Razors are cheap. Razor blades? Ridiculous. TVs? Not so bad, but a 10 dollar HD cable will cost you 100+ if you're willing to spend it.
    So yeah, they can make money everywhere else. Probably the plan from the start.

    Not a punctuation fan though, eh? lol PS3 doesn't suck. I prefer 360, myself, but neither suck. And PS3 has Call of Duty just like xbox. Online might not be as good, but it's still there.

    Your post gives Arkansas a bad name. There are quite a few good games for PS3. Not to mention Blu ray. MGS4. All the great xbox games that are on PS3 as well. Uncharted. The best is yet to come for PS3.

    I've never, ever experienced serious online problems with my PS3. I probably have about 10-12 friends with a PS3, and they have never had serious problems (occasionally signed out on wireless settings, but hey, wireless is naturally unstable). And I don't pay a freaking dime for it. I don't know, I don't really care that it's barebones. I find that PS3 players have less **** talkers, and just play the game. From what I've experienced on Live, you get all sorts of Napolean Complexs come out during and after games, and it really can get obnoxious.
