Sony must have known going in that they were going to lose money in the gaming division while they developed the PS4. They must be banking on the idea that the PS4 will sell well. I hope it does. Whatever you think of it, it is certainly more impressive than the Xbox One. That being said, the company as a whole is hardly in the red.

Does anyone know what the early tracking for PS4 sales is? Is it expected to boost sales in Sony's gaming division enough to make it turn a real profit? I hope so. I guess there's no real way of knowing until after its release.

The PS3 and Xbox360 sold at a loss for a long time early on. It's not surprising that Sony will decide to do that again with the PS4.

I really don't think this means PS4 is doomed. Just because Sony's gaming division is in the red doesn't mean it's bankrupt. Big investments like a new console usually start a company at a loss anyway. We just have to hope the payoff is good enough.
