So you’re losing money on every console you sell and your sales numbers are in the toilet… quick, what do you do? If you’re Sony’s CFO, Nobuyuki Oneda, you explain that lower sales mean lower losses. Yes, he’s actually happy they’re not selling well. He went on to say that, despite the Wii outselling the PS3 by almost five times, that the critical moment for the PS3 will be Christmas 2008. I think that the critical time for a console is somewhere before the 2-year mark, so let’s hope they have a plan for bringing up PS3 sales and making it more attractive before then. Sony seems to be into the PS3 for the long run, though, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see a new Nintendo console out before the PS3 has had its run.
But of course, that just means more money for Nintendo.
