What to Buy


"All right! You've decided to get a Wii. Now what? It's easier than you think so don't sweat it. We've listed everything you'll need, from the system to extra controllers and yes, even Wii Fit and the Balance Board for those of you who have exercise on the brain. While Nintendo's console is cheaper than most of the competition, it can still cost a pretty penny once you add extra controllers and other accessories, so you'll need to decide upfront just how much you want to spend and what is your highest priority."

I just don't get it. I could have sworn they cut development costs down to 240 bucks?

Speaking to the Times Online, when Hirai was asked about selling each unit at a loss, he responded, "If you're just talking about the hardware alone, the quick answer is yes." Nevertheless, Hirai is confident in the PlayStation business as a whole, and the traditional razor and blades business model. He continued, "That makes good headlines, but I don't actually know that that's the true nature of the business that we're all in, whether it's PlayStation, Xbox or the Wii. I think the better indicator is to look at the business as a whole platform, to ask: are you profitable in terms of the hardware, software and peripherals. And the answer to that question is yes on a gross profit level since the last fiscal year."

Facing endless quarters of losses with no turn around in sight whatsoever, coupled with dwindling cash reserves the Sony empire slowly but surely moves towards bankruptcy.

The PS3 Slim is representative of everything that is wrong with Sony's business model, and for that reason it will be the last PlayStation ever released.
