Sony Losing On Each PS3

Apparently Sony is taking a considerable loss of more than $240 per unit on each PlayStation 3 video gaming console. Desperate measures in a bid to catch up with XBOX 360's market lead it seems! Care to comment? Feel free to do so below...

Aye I knew they would do, but they'll make it up in licences and game sales (and peripherals)

Apparently they may break even in 2008!

The Wii is incomparable to the other two tbh, it's an overclocked GameCube, its the fun offered by the wii-mote which is what people are after.

The other two are comparable though .
