    Which do you think, logically, will make more money?

    I'd like to see the profits between XBox Division vs PlayStation division, rather than the companies as a whole. Which is kinda unfair to compare them anyway.
    It doesnt matter if they are totally different businesses. They still have to report revenue as a whole company. i just responded with that report because it seems he was implying that they weren't making any money on xbox, when in fact they are. According to that report, revenue for xbox actually went up.

    Did you read that? Its says xbox revenue is up. I'm guessing that covers all things xbox.You were the one saying that they are taking money from other divisions with no solid proof.I just showed you that they reported revenue from xbox and as a company. Overall it was better than last.

    It does if you're talking about gaming mate. Which we are.

    If you're talking about E-peen wars and "my dad can beat up your dad" little kid mentality, then sure, puff out your chests (general 'you' that is) and scream to the rest of the world at how your company makes money, as you need to. Heck even Mean mug like this!

    But yeah, I think it would be fairer to compare apples with apples, no? Or am I missing something here?

    Yea, we are talking about gaming but he is the one who made it out to seem like MS is tossing money and not making any.Yes they are spending, but according to them, revenue is up not down, so xbox-one cant be doing that bad.

    No thanks. I have free, recent releasing, ps3 games to play through ps+. And I have the last of us dlc to play next month.

    Destiny and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is all I need for the rest of the year.

    1.2 billion in Xbox platform revenue.

    Obviously I have to continue to spell it out so here goes.

    That means it's from the xbox. lol

    $#@!s sake they divide their company into different groups to show who's making what so asinine discussions like this wouldn't take place.

    I see what a self titled god get's you.

    Wow. My issue wasn't that XB1 < PS. It was questioning how we should be comparing them.

    I suggest you calm down.

    Microsoft announced its earnings for Q2 FY14 on January 23. The company posted a strong 14% year-over-year growth in revenues to $24.51 billion and 3% year-over-year growth in net income to $6.55 billion, buoyed by growth in hardware sales

    If you are going to post that with a snarky attitude, at least know what revenue means. o_O

    Revenue, is the money they get back from whatever sold, however, it is not profit or in other words how much they made. LOL

    Lol. This is just sad. How about you adjust your own 100 dollar issue before dealing with something like this. Not to mention it's a terrible deal.

    TBF I don't think it reeks of desperation. I just think it's an attempt to get and convert some PS gamers.

    But yeah, that 'counter' (not sure if it's real or from Sony or nto) logic "advert" I posted makes just as much sense, if not more, though.

    I don't see it as desperate at all just kind of dumb. Mostly because of the value and the fact that if you were to trade in a Sony system for 100 bucks you would go for the Sony system that is 100 dollars cheaper.

    I don't care if this is fake, what a great comeback

    Microsoft lost most of their followers when they basically told anyone who wanted to play the Xbox one online to piss off and go and play with their 360! I know they changed that but it's still a kick in the face if you ask me!

    It's fake lol. They have the same issue with actually verifying anything before posting it for hits.

    I've yet to see the actual email posted. So yeah....

    So you are saying they are lying about that being a screenshot? Also, if it IS fake then why hasn't MS come out and said so? lol

    But congrats! I googled "ditch your ps3 fake email ad" and your posts are the first results!
