Again, this is all excuses. Excuses as I have said do not sell consoles or games in a competitive market. And this generation is shaping up to be the most brutally competitive generation in console gaming history. And yes, I get that games take years to make. It was never a question of how long games take to make.

If this doesn't sound like something a business does, it should. Because businesses do this all the time. They're called deadlines.
The bottom line is, they should have had these games in production when they were developing the software, and had them ready to go at launch. If they did, they'd be making their next line of games, and they'd be making MORE money than they are now. Probably far more. But they didn't have them ready to go when they had a monopoly on the market for an entire year. THAT is why they dropped the ball.
Do you honestly think that if Sony or MS had the market to themselves for a year, they would only make two or three games for their new console?
