Nikkei: Sony to post profits in all their divisions

Forums - Sales Discussion - Nikkei: Sony to post profits in all their divisions

Very well. Now this is a source one can trust The Sony comment itself was a rather general statement and didn't make clear whether they are going to profit or not.

Why lie? You obviously dont have all three current gen consoles your sig says it all.


He DIDN'T say he was unbias toward one console. He said he is a user of all 3 consoles. I have all 3 consoles and I'm more bias toward the PS3. And I don't even think he's touched his sig since around December since he's manning the Mass Effect 2 hype train..

Believe me the redesigned console with a price cut would eat into the PS3 sales, thats just life and at this stage how many loyal Sony consumers still exist? I think if some of you were honest you would admit that you are now considering a 360 but only if its price was lower and below are just some of the reasons.

  • Storage
  • Wi Fi (n)
  • Design (Now even looks like a PS3 in the right light)
  • Resolved Failure issues
  • Exclusives

I will admit if the PS3 came down further in price I would consider it, I would not on the other hand consider a Wii.

the redesigne doesn#t matter at all to the fanboys, the only thing that matters is a price point that is worth the cost of a 200 to 300$ console for  8 games

This is really good news, I've always enjoyed Sony products and would hate to see them forced to cut back more on any division.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

Umm..Microsoft's price cut wouldn't effect to Sony at all (well Ps3 maybe 5-10k hw)..It would just boost Xbox 360.


Well said! sad to see some xbox users turn into the usual Ninty users who run around screaming oooh we have great sales this week the competition is the doomzed nowz omgz, funny stuff

anywho good for Sony, they are slowly but surely turning things around

I assume that was directed at me?  I am a user of all three current generation consoles actually.

It is naive to think that the Xbox 360 has no effect on the PS3 and vica versa.  The more sales one has proportionate to the other, the easier it is for that console to secure exclusives in the future, something that is especially critical with their new motion controls.

The PS3/360 install bases are so comparable and will stay that way. Third party exclusives are dead.

As for motion exclusives, we don't know how Move and Kinect are going to perform yet. Regardless, I expect most publishers will aim to cater to both as much as possible, since the install base for a peripheral accessory on either console is never going to be particularly huge on its own. They need to provide to the two platforms combined if they want to ensure profitability.



HUZZAH!!!

What cost-cutting measures?

The restructuring that happened over the last couple of years plus redesign work of the ps3 itself.
