    I forgot to mention that.

    Yeah the fact that Microsoft is backing it is huge as well, because microsoft can just give HD-DVD built into their OS. They might lack on Sonys crap.

    20-30 PS3 games?! Are you sure you've got that figure right? That would be about $2000-3000! Hell, I only own about about 20-30 games for my PS2...six years after it launched. Not to mention the PS3 is launching with 13 launch titles. (Depending on which country you're in, I think this number varies)

    Wii is still awesome.

    Actually 20 to 30 games is more like $1200 to $1800, and not all of that is profit for Sony.

    yeah that's if each game is $60, I imagine some first party ones may be as much as $80, at least I read the spread was approx $60 - $80

    Just because it only cost them $158 to produce does not mean they did not spend a lot more of the wii to sell it. And even if they did not, a $100 markup is not that bad.

    The sneakers you are wearing were probably marked up by 300%!

    40 bucks a wii?

    Woah, that's a nice little chunk of pocket change, counting that there should be 4 mil out by the end of the year.

    Which is like.. 4 million times 40? Like... 160 million bucks in profit in a month and... two weeks-ish!?

    No waaaay...

    I say the next system's gonna be up to par graphic-wise with the next batch of consoles. And we know how schweet that will be.
    That's some serious profit in such a little time!
    That turtle has a brief case. It must be going to work. I hope it has a good day.
