@ these guys running to Sony's defense. I thougth everyone knew that Sony basically "bet the farm" on BD/PS3. It may payoff one day but that day isn't today and won't be this year. Until they earn MORE than what their losses are, to date, they will still be in the red. The 360 has nothing to do with it and bring M$ into this discussion has no bearing.

I guess that is hard for some to understand.

Sony sold it's Cell BE FAB to Toshiba for $835 million in Feb. They also sold a chunk of the company to Dubai. You should be able to Google the stories with that info.
Is that what Toshiba's putting in the SRT?

Not sure whether this was directed at me, but I see no problem trying to state the facts.

Not directed at you at all. It was towards the ever-defender, lancer.

This is why I specified over the long haul. In the next two to five years?? Not likely at all, but over all, I think it's possible. This is also I think why Sony required that all games be put on BD. Royalties coming in that way too as opposed to going to the DVD forum / Toshiba. We all know that there have been MANY games that didn't have to go on a BD. They would have fit just fine on a DVD. But that would lead to royalties to DVD Forum, rather than the BDA.
