Lol who cares about the ceo's getting a bonus cut? Those guys make a fortune anyway. Also, just because Sony as a whole isn't doing that great doesn't mean playstation is going anywhere. It's the thing that probably makes them the most money and it just shows how important it is for the company. With MS on the other hand Xbox is just a small portion of their business and it's far more likely that they would sell it off if it's not performing as the shareholders would have liked.


Did you just open the post and just decided to reply without even reading the article? It clearly states that even tho PS4 is doing well it is still trending behind compared to 6 years ago. And Sony as a whole cannot survive on Playstation alone. And even if PS could be on its own, without Sony to back it up it would fail to stay on its fit just like Sega did during their console years.

technically speaking a big company could buy the playsation brand ie google or apple. However just because they buy the brand doesn't mean it would be the same playstation. Sony's culture and people is what makes the playstation brand what it is today. A sale of the brand would put us in the unknown on how it would turn out.

I just fail to see why we have to keep seeing articles like this on gaming sites. Sony is a huge company and they just aren't the brand anymore that they were in the Walkman days. TV's, pc's, phones audio and mediaplayers are all markets where Sony is getting it's ass kicked. However, this has nothing to do with the ps4, which is setting record numbers (even if it is trending behind compared to 6 years ago).

Like I said, Sony isn't going anywhere, they just need to cut some fat and get rid of some of their divisions. Any 6-year-old could have predicted that focussing purely on 4k tv's right now would be a bad idea for example. And of course Sony could survive on Playstation alone, hell Nintendo has done pretty good for themselves. It would just be as a different kind of company, more streamlined and with less of a focus on other consumer electronics. 

But there is just no chance in hell that Sony will close it's doors in the near future and stop with the ps4 all together. It's far more likely that they will actually put more resources in the ps4, and I'm sure that they will come out swinging at E3, when it's do or die time for them. 



good to see

Edit:  Should have added the rest to it.  good to see CEOs taking some type of responsibility.  Trolling was not my intent.



Since the PS3 they never made real profits and this will be the same with the PS4 too.

We should get used to it. People are trying to find anything negative related towards the Playstation 4. Sadly like you already said, Sony is a huge corp. They are losing a sh*tload of money in a lot of divisions, but I can't imagine these losts are coming from the gaming division. Tomorrow we are able to see which parts of Sony is causing the losts.

I think even when the financials come out tomorrow Sony will still claim it's nothing to worry about no matter how bad the numbers look. They're not going to come out and say they're doing horrible because they have to appease shareholders.



Love the product, not the company. They love your money, not you.

Its just like nintendo. Its only fair to be honest. Western executives definitly should be shown the same treatment.



Sony must focus on selling buildings. That's how they make profits.

Well, don't worry, his little bro Nintendo posted losses and Iwata is almost paying for working there.

Nintendo has the largest gaming division and the most money, did you mean big bro?



They were always in trouble and I am glad to see them making the hard cuts they need right now.

Even if Sony go bankrupt someone will buy the PlayStation brand given how successful it still is.
