Sony makes a lot more stuff then just the playstation. if anything i would say sony as a hole company has more money then microsoft. Especially since more OS's are comming out they are going to lose a lot of money that windows has provided.

They will, but they'll probably recouperate from it. Even Microsoft is losing about $75 per Xbox 360, but Microsoft can afford it.

No. What you said was that Sony could not sustain a loss like microsoft. I'm simply saying it can more then easily do that.
