    Who is said analyst? All I see is a random spreadsheet.

    Reported for "What is this I don't even?".

    What does all of that even mean? 'Profits' from hardware sales? Profits from everything related to the systems?

    You can't honestly tell me you were expecting a legit source with that title.

    When I post threads, I make sure it's actually something that's even remotely worth a read, and I usually measure other "news threads" with the same scale of sh*t/not sh*t. This of course often leads to disappointment, as apparently with basic Excel skills, you can consider yourself an "analyst".

    This is what counts for "analysis" now?

    Well shit, call up The Wall Street Journal because I've got a spreadsheet and I'm not afraid to use it!

    A brief skim of the article and I'm not seeing that it really counts software into the numbers (correct me if I'm wrong). That's a huge thing to leave out.

    Of course Sony at least lost money on the PS3, because they sold it at a loss. With software on the other hand, it's a different story.
