    How much money did the consoles make?

    Just wondering how much you guys think how much was made out of these next gen consoles

    For every PS3 and XBOX sold, there was no profit, in fact the hardware costs and manufacuturing costed even more then what it was sold for.

    I think they want to make this up from the profits in games, but since PS3 is was such a failure, I don't think they made much.

    The Wii however earned every console sold, and is selling very well since I have been trying to get my hands on one for the past month, and I still don't have one.

    what do you guys think?

    How old are you MasterJedi? Seriously, all I see from you is immature bitching. You're entitled to your opinion of course, but make it something worth wasting my time reading at least.

    I know the Wii makes money on each console sold but does anyone know who much the initial development cost of the Wii was.

    Nintendo probably makes $US30 from each of the 6000000 console. This adds up to $18000000. I'm pretty sure the development costs of the Wii were far in excess of this.

    21 bitch and are you actually condoning this crap? I mean really? He answered his own question basically. And its not like he couldn't search (either on this forum or 1 min on google). Besides the fact that almost everyone in the gaming industry knows that Nintendo is making a little profit off every Wii sold. So yeah I was ass to him. Are you going to reach across the internet and strangle me? Lol...please get real. This shit is beyond ridiculous.

    Next thing you know his next question will be, "Will the Nintendo Wii have Online?"

    Wiily Good is the only person here with a valid point. No one seems to take into consideration R&D when it comes to cost of the console.

    I don't have the exact break down right now, but it costs $210 for Nintendo to make a Wii. That's $40 profit for every Wii sold.
