Just read the article http://www.businessinsider.com/sony-warns-of-11-billion-loss-2014-2.  Sony is a long way off from being profitable on a consistent basis and when it comes to making high quality electronics they can not surpass Samsung and LG.  Not only do those two South Korean giants make better electronics they also make a wider variety of electronics.

Holy shit man, you still don't get what this is about do you?   Everyone knows that they will lose 1.1 Billion. But your initial statement said "they recently" lost 1.1B.  That's the forecast for March 31st, 2014 results. It's true that they will lose that much money because it was projected. However, you said it in past tense which made it seem like Sony lost that 1.1 billion already in the last quarter. That's why someone replied to you saying "When"   Because it's not March 31st yet, it will be in a few weeks but not now. That is all.......

When doesn't really matter the fact is still that they will lose $1.1 billion that is the only thing that matters.

Exactly, but it's your wording that's being picked apart is all.

Well, while the statement is true in the long run, it lacks detail, is basically the point.  The 1.1B loss is forecasted over the next year, not a single day.

Errr... nope. 

It is forecast by March 2014 (a few weeks from now) for the year to March 31st 2014.  This isnt for the next year, its for the current fiscal year.

 

 

Ok, point still stands though, it's the losses accrued over a years time, not just for March 31st 2014.  I simply had the timeframe mixed up.

This is where I see so much misunderstanding on financials.

The ONLY numbers that matter for financial results are the year end results.   Quasrtelty financial statements are just that... they mean nothing unless they acumulate into a full year loss or gain.  Sony will record a loss for the year.  What he said was 100% accurate, what you are saying is pointless.

 

 

 

Uh, no, not really.  What I said was factually correct, other than the timeframe.  His statement made it sound like Sony's losing 1.1b in a day.  That's equally if not more inaccurate than my previous statement of 'Over the next year'.  Additionally, Sony's games division is losing nothing right now (unlike Microsofts), which would give them more leeway with shareholders to throw money at things.  Whether they do or not is up to Sony and their shareholders.

Microsoft on the other hand IS losing money in their games division, AND they have major stockholders breathing down their necks.  Equally important to the topic at hand.  So, their purse strings aren't exactly as limitless as some people point out.

But hey, if it makes you feel better by all means, continue to discount reality, and marginalize the fine print.


deary me...

are you actually attempting to paint MS in a worse financial light than Sony?  really?

He didn't make it sound like a day, he said they recently announced a 1.1bn loss.... that is factually correct.

You are tap dancing because you realised your error and now you are deflecting.

1. MS doesn't have a gaming division

2. MS is fucking loaded.



I'm not really here!

That's cool but most PlayStation gamers don't care about it.

Couldn't be farther from the truth. I'd be willing to bet the bank account that if Titanfall was a PS4 exclusive, you can bet your ass the majority of Sony fans on this site would be claiming it's the best thing since sliced bread.

If Titanfall wasn't exclusive then the situation for XBO would be really dire. I mean they're already getting outsold 2 to 1 in the US alone, and that was Microsoft's stronghold. They need Titanfall, the PS4 will be just fine without it.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Does Sony even have enough money to do paid exclusivity ?

 They defintiely do, as they've done so in the past. They just don't go so far to get things like CoD or BF, as that an amazing ammount of money we're talking, and it's kindof pointless as millions will still buy the games on PS anyway. Fact about Sony is they devote most of their money to first party studios to develope fantastic AAA exclusives. It's pretty much why Sony's first party are second to none in the industry. Who really needs timed exclusive DLC when you can make exclusives that stay exclusives forever? I know which of those 2 I'd prefer.

On another note it would be funny to hear some phone conversations between all these parties. Something like the "F**k the EU" thread we had last week. Adam Boyes calling up Peter Moore, "F**k MS, have you seen the NPD numbers?" LOL



I tried the game on PC. I would't care if its not coming to PS4 tbh. Game of the generation they said XD



Am I the only one thats pissed about how Microsoft strongly went after Titanfall for exclusivity when they have a superior mech game and universe they already own in MechWarrior? They could have taken all the money they spent on Titanfall and put it towards a good game worth playing in MechWarrior, instead of handing it off to some low budget 3rd party and making a terrible multiplayer only version in Mechwarrior Online.
