As I stated earlier in this thread, Sony took a $4.7 billion loss from when the PS3 was released until it started becoming profitable, which was around 2009.
PS3 wasn't profitable in 2009,it was just that the software sales could cover the minor loss PS3 SLIMMER were making
That $4.7 billion was a real cost incurred by Sony and until they manage to recoup that $4.7 billion and then some from Walkman sales, television sales, or whatever, then the PS3 cannot be considered a worthwile, profitable venture that beckons a PS4.
PS3 made way for blu-ray royalties and cheaper PS4 and still be a big brand with good sales at high price,now how is that not worthwhile
All of that profit the PS3 is making now is what Accounting 101 calls a "credit" and that $4.7 billion loss is what Accounting 101 calls a "debit." Sony has a lot of credits to make from the PS3 in order to remove the parentheses from the red (4.7) billion.
how they will recover:
PS3 profits from now on
BLU-RAY helping SONY's other divisions
I am just wondering what kind of uninformed investor invests in companies such as Sony who have shown with the PS3, that they are willing to take a $4.7 billion loss and still have another $5 billion loss via the PS4 in the next 5 years?
how are they making another $5billion loss via PS4???????-stop bullshiting
and those uninformed investors that you talk about are gonna profit big in the future
Now, I am assuming: 1. There will be a PS4 and 2. Sony and Kaz Hirai will try to 1up Nintendo and Microsoft by putting out another overpriced vanity machine (PS4) at a price all except the most fervent of Sony supporters will not buy.
how will they overprice it now that the blu-ray has been established and its cheap????????
again stop bullshitting
I don't wish death on Sony as I have been a consumer of their product in my younger years, I just wish they would own up to their past mistakes,
hop some heads off in their company,
how is that gonna help
and get back to the basics by prioritizing what products are making a profit, continue to make those profitable products, and shut down the products and company divisions who are running at a loss,
so you want them to provide us with shit products but profit,good consumer you are.die in hell as other don't want this
while being subsidized by the more profitable product divisions.
taking losses for future profits isn't foolish
