$ 1,1 billion in losses.........5.000 employees fired....... Closing their PC division........wow.....
that´s A LOT. I means, it´s just too much......... It´s even waaay steeper than Nintendo losses.
Reengineering is urgent at Sony. Let´s just hope they do their reestructuring right and not harm the videogame division. Still I have the feeling that even the videogame division may suffer someway
How much Nintendo lost? 10-20 million US dollars? ... And people go doom and gloom...
Yet Sony is losing 1.1 billion US dollars which is 50-100 times more than Nintendo and it is not well reported as when Nintendo has some minor loss that is really a pocket change when you know that Nintendo has billions upon billions of US dollars in the bank. More than enough to make their own space station or buy entire North Korea while Sony on the other hand does not even have a beaten time and takes loans from loan sharks.
I am surprised Sony didn't sell VAIO PC business any sooner... Nobody buys their laptops/PC's.
They need to focus more smartphone/tablet, create an App that will only work on smartphones/tablets made by Sony in which you can play PlayStation, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable games. Sony needs to belly up fast and cut as much as possible to survive and save up money. They need to improve efficiency on how they work and operate.
Sony still have a good chance in TV business, they just need to improve and stop focusing on high end TV's, make regular tv's for regular folks.
I don't want a freaking duopoly in console market.
