Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony market cap rises to over 51billion

Sony seems to be getting bigger and bigger, still not on 90s level I guess but will get there.

In 2012 it was at 14B

Thats a huge jump from 14B -> 51.25B, in just 5 years.

Even if most where undervalueing it at the time back then.



Predictions (from jan 2017):
This year PS4slims hit 199$ during the holidays.
This year PS4 sales go over 18,5m.

Necro-bump this 2020: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=229249

How much of that jump is owed to the PS4 though. I would estimate at least halve since the Sony movie and Sony music are in worse shape. Sony tv is still a meh market and Sony has stopped producing tablets and laptops and will hopefully stop making phones for their own good. But Playstation has had an enormous boost since 2012 and is enough to let Sony grow it seems.

Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Still living in 2012 I see. 

Pictures is poised to huge comeback with movies like Spidey and baby driver, Smurfs and RE did good too. 

Sony rules the TV market big time alongside LG and Samsung. 

Sony Music prints money and has one of the top grossing mobile games WW. 

SONY Playstation is beasting. 

Xperia Z Premium is the best phone on the market. 

Keep fighting the good fight.

Nah, doing bad or well Sony always takes risks, they know only by taking risks they can be the top dog in this industry, look at Apple or Google, they take risks they dominate the market, look at Microsoft, they copy others, they are irrelevant outside Windows. 

Zune copied Ipod but ipod already dominated. 

WP copied ios and Android but was too late. 

Kin tried to be Microsoft iPhone, failed. 

You see? You gotta take risks or you become irrelevant against your competitors.

calm down please... mostly when it comes to the mobile and tv divisions.

Especially on the mobile division where Samsung has about 50% of the android market vs under 3% from Sony... actually they are about #8 on Android alone... not even throwing apple into the mix.

What do you mean nah? lol My point was that sony is likely to take more risks on new IPs and be more free with their wallet with producing more games when they are doing better especially when that investment is paying off. It's easier to justify larger investments into it.
