Speaking at the Games Convention Developers Conference this afternoon, industry stalwart Dave Perry said that Sony has lost more money selling PlayStation 3s than it made selling PlayStation 2s during the entire five years of its peak.

Perry backed up the statement quoting statistics that he obtained from research firm, DFC Intelligence.

He added that according to DFC Intelligence, Microsoft lost $4 billion dollars on the original Xbox and the PS3 is first in overall software sales this gen.
