Im confused.....you just proved my point.
If Sony stopped releasing PS3 numbers individually to the public..............how is that any different than MS now?
Sure, they combined PS2, Slim and Fat into one, but that was because PS2 was still being produced.
360 was discontinued in late 2015/early 2016 (depending on region). They dont have anything to combine it with.
My point stands. Sony did not release individual PS3 numbers for years.
From a business standpoint, Sony was RIGHT to shield their shareholders from any fallout from consumers...........just as MS is doing now.
This isnt a one side or another issue.
Its Business/PR 101
Xbox 360's software run-time ecosystem still exist with XBO's BC, hence XBO is expanding X360's install base.
