Dumb article is retarded. Considering their insurance is the best for the company and movies and music is usually solid and if they keep delivering with phones... sony isnt just playstation and you should be embarrassed posting this rubish


And not a word on vertical integration and cross marketing, the two Sony's specialty.

Playstation doesn't make much

It isn't saving Sony

Selling insurance is along with a very very very favourable yen

Most internet gamers don't/wont accept Sony is right now in HUGE trouble. I think Playstation itself coul exist without Sony. As in acquired before liquidation or sold off. But I don't expect Playstation to be what it is today by 2020. Nintendo and Xbox are worth more than the playstation brand in business terms. Xbox is worth more than all of Sony at $23 billion for example. Sony in its entirity is worth $19.5 billion, but also has more than triple that in debt.

Worth means nothing if a division makes no net profit ... Hence why microsoft can't compete with Sony or Nintendo.


Microsoft compete with Apple btw....

In game consoles?

And in all the products that actually makes Apple it's $ Billions its competing worse against Apple than Xb vs PS.

Xbox is the only one of the 3 to post a profit every quater since 2008 Q3. What happened at the beginning is irrelevant. If someone was looking to aquire Xbox today it would be based on it being consistantly profitable for the last 5 years.

You do realize that they hide the losses with android patent liscensing, right ? 

You do know thats bullshit right?  I mean... just plain wrong.  Different divison unfortunately for you.

Off course not ...geez...



 

Evan Wells (Uncharted 2): I think the differences that you see between any two games has much more to do with the developer than whether it’s on the Xbox or PS3.

You mean financial/insurance right? As far as I'm aware that's all that brings money in?

Sony would be better without everything except Playstation.


Insurance?  Movies?  music?

All more profitable.

Without insurance they wouldn't exist.  They would have gone by now.

never ceases to amaze me how little most sony fans know about the company they favour.

They only have one divsion that handles xbox and that's entertainment and devices but they also handle windows phone too so I wonder where android patent licensing would go ...

And it never ceases to amaze me how you feel the need to constantly talk down to people.

Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Why even post such an ill researched article? It seems to me that Xbox fans are just holding out hope that Sony will go under soon so that PS can suffer from it, as Xbox can't win when it's a fair fight. It's ok, there's no chance that that is going to happen, but they can continue to hope, I suppose. If anything, Sony will recover to a much better position. They have plenty of profit rolling in from the PS division, music division, movie division, and insurances. Phone division is now solid. And changes are underway to handle the divisions that are causing the losses, TV and PC.

Personally, I think you guys should be looking out for the Xbox division. If sales don't turn around for the One, then that means lower SW and Live profits as MS drops the 360 and gamers move on to next gen. Investors are not going to want to keep it around if it becomes a sinkhole, yet again.
