Situation not as good as it seems
Although Xbox 360 sales have beaten those of its competitor, the PS3, it seems that not everything is as great as it seems at first glance. Although Microsoft wasn’t quite shy of telling the world how it beat its fierce competitor, we’re now seeing some interesting news about how will this affect the company.
Recent price cuts have seen the 360 fare pretty well, but it seems like it might have a negative effect on the company. Gamingfront.net reports that while Sony’s revenues increased this year, Microsoft’s share went down most likely due to Xbox 360 price cuts.
So the actual problem arises from the actual sustainability, which will probably depend on the software sales and such. So, we might actually see the console wars switch to title wars, as these just might decide on who stays and who bites the dust.
It might seem that Sony’s speech on Xbox 360’s lack of longevity had more truth to it than we initially thought, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
a comment about this issue:
You realize this is REVENUE, revenue by itself is almost meaningless, that is simply the total cash passing through from the sale of goods. Higher priced goods will always bring higher revenues as long as someone is buying them.
It is profits that count,profit is the part of those revenues that the company actually gets to keep! This article states that Sony is earning more than MS, but this is deceptive, because we are only shown revenues and no profits.
Profits are what really matter, Sony always focuses on revenue when they are outsold in an effort to spin the outlook on poor performance, what this article does is the same thing, except you guys are not Sony, so you are basically doing it for them. Are you getting paid for such a service?
