Think you paid too much for your Playstation 3? Don't expect any sympathy from Sony.


It has been talked about before, but if one really paid the real cost of a console, one might give up gaming on them. The Sony has lost over $3 billion on the PS3 (http://videogames.yahoo.com/feature/sony-has-lost-over-3-billion-on-the-ps3/1223467) article shows where console makers really make their money.

haha well they'll have to lower the price drastically and wait till I have first bought my PC before I'll be buying a PS3.

They lost huge on the regular play station too. That was until they decided to reduce the price so that more people could buy them. Afterwhich the games came a flowin.

Well for what your getting with the PS3, taking the price into consideration, this shouldnt take anybody by surprise.

Because the prices for that thing are absurd, they deserve losing that much money for expecting people to pay that much for a game console.

Well lets see, you get a blu ray player and a gaming console, to put it in perspective I think the cheapest blu ray player besides the ps3 is 400 or 500 bucks.

Remember when they were first released, they cost $599. If Sony were to ask the actual price, one might be looking at an $800 or more console. Not worth it for something that does just 2 things. There is no return on investment for the gamer to buy an $800 piece of plastic.

OMG WK thank you so much! The new boyfriend is trying to decide between a PS3 and a 360. I think I will show him this. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I don't mean any disrespect to Sony or Sony owners, but I want my boyfriend to have the same console as me so we can play SC and other games together.

Melonie got John to get a PS3 so I know she can relate. http://media.ubi.com/us/forum_images/gf-glomp.gif
