overreaction of the day surely?
This wont devalue their own hardware one bit.
This completely reeks of the crap they pulled when they started to kill of Vita in favor of Xperia. Where did killing Vita get them? 5 billion in the red, and Xperia has dropped 80% in the last 5 years.
Sony has been making extreamly stupid decision for 20 years, and it has killed the TV division, their mobile audio division, their music division, and their phone division. All they have left is PlayStation, they can not keep making stupid decisions.
Right now they have Bravia and Xperia brands fighting against their own ecosystem, they have Ultra battling PS Video in the digital 4K video space, and now they have PS Now battling PS4 in the PC space which they have absolutely no connections to. They did an awesome job cleaning the company up 5 years ago, and were looking great at the PS4 launch, but over the last 2 years they have started to go back to their old ways, which nearly sank the entire company less than 10 years ago.
As a share holder and a Sony consumer, these bad decisions, and continually falling sales and revenue are really starting to piss me off. They have everything they need to be making Apple and Microsoft level profits and revenue in the next 5 years, but it seems like they are doing all they can to mess it up again.
yeah, reads like an overreaction.
You know ZERO about how they will tackle this outside of the fact that it includes PS4 games. For all we know this starts with digital only titles. It starts with PS2 classics (which means they can bring PS2 games to the service) It starts with games that launched on the PS4 and will continue chronologically. Cause you know what? If itis digital only games, no one will care. If its PS2 classics, no one will care. If its really old PS4 games, no one will care. None of these are sleling points for the PS4 at this point. Ppl are buying PS4 for the latest and biggest games, especially from 3rd parties
So yeah, you are overreacting. Come back to me when Sony actually says that every single brand new PS4 game launches on PS Now day 1 then we accept your concerns. Until then, just relax and be happy that Sony is preparing for the possibility of game streaming being an actual viable variable in the future, andthey will be the only ones truly prepared for it. Yours shares will come into good use then.
