Comment: Re:Xbox 1 owner here (Score 1) 160

There is a notable difference here in that the PS2 was a hugely successful and profitable piece of hardware that continues to outsell its 'next-gen' counter part on a regular basis, while the xbox was built and sold at a loss for MS and was quickly ignored by consumers as soon as the 360 hit shelves. Why would MS continue to support a system that is basically dead weight to consumers and a huge hole in their coffers, and conversely, why would Sony not continue support for PS2 since it is still the major source of income for their gaming division?
