Exactly. The Xbox is a proven competitor against Sony. Some people just won't admit that *cough* Ken Kutaragi *cough*

Yeah, but Sony want's to expand it to North America, where DVD currently is the standard. As far as I'm concerned, I don't need disks that carry 25 or 50gb. Normal DVDs or HD-DVDs suit me fine.

Setishock has a point. They could be losing that much, but they'll gain alot of money from other resources so they won't really lose out.

Microsoft said they are losing about $500 on each X-BOX, so its alot worse than Sony's loss of $100

What?! Where did you get that? The Xbox 360 costs about $375 to make, but because Bill Gates wants it to launch at $299, they'll lose about $75 per console. The difference is that Microsoft can afford to take that chance, while Sony can't. Sony has put so much time, effort and resources that they can't afford to mark the PS3 down anymore.
