CEOs always are eating well even if a company is going broke.   In fact some companies probably are going broke because CEO's ate everything they could like termites.

My information is based on the fact that I alone dropped 140 dollars last week...to think I am the only one is short sighted. Home is even more to some people than it is to me and I'm dumping cash intk it steadily. Can you prove Home is not profitable?

It's also short sighted to think that your buying habits represent the community at large.

 

In the past week, I've spent nothing on Home.  To apply your logic from my perspective, it would mean that Sony has generated no revenue from Home in the past week.  Obviously false.

 

I'd wager that there is a relatively small minority of users who spend a lot on Home, a lot of people who spend sparingly, a lot of people who spend none and a large majority of PS3 users who never even look at Home.

 

Without any official numbers available, nobody here can prove that Home is not profitable any more than you can prove that it is.

I'm going to waste my breath once here then leave this topic.

*Most of the money goes to the developer and not Sony.



Most of the money goes to the publisher, which in this case is Sony.

 

 

As for the rest of the misinformation in this thread, those of you under the assumption that Home is highly profitable need to dig your thinking caps out of your cracks.

I doubt that the revenue from Home or even the future existence of Home has any meaningful bearing on Sony's stock prices...nor the contents of the CEO's plate.

 

Unless you were being facetious, in which case I'll give an LOL. :smileyhappy:

I know I don't spend as much as many of my friends do, but I do notice pretty much every space I go to, almost everyone has some sort of LMO active. Hoverboards, bikes, motorcycles, dances, poses, gestures... People are eating these things up at anywhere from $2 to $5 each. The developers must be making money off them or else why would they bother making them.

Well they must make enough money to break even, and for a small dev that's fine. It keeps them in work.

A lot of companies keep making their products while they stagger into bankruptcy and eventual  liquidation.  Ongoing production and product visibility do not always ensure profitability or sustainability.

 

I'm not saying that that is the case with Home because I have no idea but it's something to consider.
