- they cant even afford a ps2
- their parents will beat them if they ask for a ps2
- they have to stick with their pcs

In what way was that launch successful. One year late with half the promised already weak shipment numbers and not one single decent launch title

Is that conversion rate listed accurate? If it is these are the prices listed:
PS2: $203.44456404736
PS3 50: $484.39181916039
PS3 60: $645.85575888052

How are they claiming to lose money on each PS2 when it sells in the US for over $50 cheaper? Why is the 50 gig model of the PS3 cheaper yet the 60 gig model is way to expensive? None of this makes any sense!
