Does Sony Care More About Their Gamer's Then Microsoft and Nintendo...

Yes
No

Sony has always been trying there hardest to have the "Most Powerful" platform on the market since they entered the gaming industry. They have suffered losses from both the PS2, PS3, and now PS Vita due to craming in so much tech and specs at lauch in their platforms.

Sony also does not make their consumers pay for their online service like the "other guy" does and has promised that psn will remain free. Weather or not its infearior or not is still debatably...

Sony also has arguably the best first party development team out of the "Big 3" and they show no sign of not slowing down in getting more developers to join SCE.

With Sony having lost billions on the PS3 and now losing money on the PS Vita, Do you think Sony is being too generous to thier consumers willing to keep investing in 1st party studios and continue to lose money on thier platforms to give their consumers the best possible gaming expernice???

Lol no. They thought they could shove expensive crap down people's throats. Just look at the Vita and ridiculous prices on the accessories!

No, that's just the route they have to take now.

Exactly like with the whole 'Oh we want Move to appeal to REAL gamers' blah blah blah. Because they had no other choice. Their whole strategy makes them appear to like gamers, but all the big 3 are the same, if Sony could have swapped with Nintendo at the height of the Wii they would have in a heartbeat.

Yes Sony has recently had to charge more then their competitiors on thier products. But the real question is was IT worth the investment.

The Vita may be expensive but it does/offers alot then its competitor. Just need to wait on the "Must have" games.

Sony cares about taking over your living room, as does Microsoft. Nintendo on the other hand cares about their gamers half the time, when it comes to home consoles.

"People will get a second job to buy a PS3"

They care about your money just the same as Microsoft and Nintendo

Nope, thanks to the growing technology and the road which Nintendo has made with wireless motion controls, their gonna want to target more than just "hardcore" gamers.

Overall, in truth they care about the money rather than the enjoyment and satisfaction of the average gamer.

Wouldn't even say they care about money much, continue to cut hardware when they should be looking for other methods to spur on growth, persist with trying to make their 7 straight year loss tv division a success, amongst other things.

I think Sony cares about marketshare, market presence and mindshare most of all. That's what their actions suggest anyhow.



 

Neh... Their business model just sucks like a californian hooker...

Depending on high market share on a premium product with small profit margins isn't the smartest thing to do.. That's like dangeling your balls above a fire..
