@Irish : except the playstation brand is a lot of things included, which means you can't stop supporting it :
- songs for music games
- movies for licensed games like Spiderman...
That's why everybody made fun of Kotick and the share dropped : it didn't make sense at all.
Huh? The quote is talking about the ps3. Here, let me give it for you:
They have to cut the price, because if they don’t, the attach rates [the number of games each console owner buys] are likely to slow. If we are being realistic, we might have to stop supporting Sony.” Ask when and he says: “When we look at 2010 and 2011, we might want to consider if we support the console — and the PSP [portable] too.
Look at the bolded. He is talking about the current gen and the ps3. He says that they MAY add the psp into that as well...if he was talking about all of sony why would he talk about one console and then add in the psp?
Sony fans are taking this out of context to try and make the quote sound different than what it is. And ifi you look at the numbers, the rev for the system he is taling about-the ps3- is less than 10% (and the profits are even lower than that.). I doubt they really will drop support yet, but if that % goes down this year and next, then they have no real reason to support it.
