    Nvidia made $400 million profit on original Xbox 10 years ago. $500 million in totl PS3 sold

    Then there’s the margin question. Nvidia’s 10-K filing for fiscal year 2003 (that’s calendar year 2002) states that the company made 23% of its total $1.9B revenue, or (((roughly $400M, on Xbox sales. That’s profits for one year)))) — the original Xbox went on to sell some 24 million consoles worldwide

    Tha was on 24 million units sold.

    Here it is 10 years later and AMD has the Wii U, PS4, Xbox 720 and expecting 44 million units to be sold once all 3 start shipping.

    $400 million is a nice profit 10 years ago. I think $400 million per quarter in 2013 will be that far off.

    Two years ago, in January 2011, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told reporters that the Sony-Nvidia deal had (((earned Nvidia $500M in royalties since 2004))). The total number of shipped PS3 consoles by March, 2011 stood at 50 million.

    {{{If nvidia made $500 million ROYALTIES on 50 million PS3 sold how much will AMD make on 44 million game consoles selling a year with the AMD APU inside?}}}

    This sure is looking like AMD will make a ton of money off these game consoles

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
