And you may not be wrong since it's rumored that Sony will allow console cross-play by the end of their fiscal year.

Seems promising... Hopefully then people will be able to recover the Fortnite accounts Sony hijacked. Awfully slow implementation though.

Do you even play Fortnite?

I've played a bit but Paladins and Octo Expansion have pulled me away.

That's nice at all, but there has been a massive run up in almost all stock markets worldwide for the last several years. Tons of companies are at or near their all-time highs.

" to become the biggest Japanese electronics maker by market capitalization for the first time in more than 15 years."

By definition of the word "Biggest" not all Japanese electronics companies are doing this. 



4 ≈ One

Correct.  And, as I said, it is nice.  Sony is doing well.  But, it is important to keep things in perspective.  Most of their competitors, and the vast majority of publicly traded companies all around the world are seeing market caps at or near all time highs.

Now they should advertise their flagship smartphones more!!! Xperia ZX2 Premium looks really fantastic!!!!!

I wish Xperia would go away. Selling devices that loose you money, while boosting the userbase of a direct competitor is terrible business. They need to get their Phones and TVs running on their OS and connected to their Store. The expereince between their Consoles, Phones, and TVs should be unified and seamless. If they continue to rely on Google, and refuse to expand their ecosystem beyond consoles, this success will be short lived.

Long way off from an all time high of 142.38. They lost so much ground for like 20 years straight.

Sony had and still has all the tools to be a major player in all aspects ranging across OS, Hardware, Software, Digital Store Front, Music, Games, Movies, TV, Displays, Stereos, Spreakers, and more. All they have to do is just unify behind a common goal. Sadley, they just can not get all divisions on the same page. Even today continue to fight against each other. As they continued to fight with no division gaining any ground, and billions being lost, investors almost completely gave up on them. Now that PlayStation has taken a clear cut lead in profitability, and growth, along with success in the CMOS business, investors are slowly starting to see the possability of good things to come. If they can just get every division on board to unify behind the PlayStation OS and PlayStation Store, then they will be on their way to rocketing past their previous record high.

If Sony can unite all divisions, and deliver a unified ecosystem, that offers a seemless expereince across all products, and delivers the best of Sony directly to all of their devices, they will give anyone a run for their money.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

This is so true. They should do something along the lines of what some of those online personal projects suggest as e.g. this one: https://itsasonyblog.wordpress.com



So...is the cross play thing the new buzzword at the moment?

It would be great for the industry but Sony's not too receptive to it.

I concur with the consistency problem.  They need to send a clearer image regarding their product line-up.  They have like 04 49inches TVs.  They should just have the SUPER TOP TIER and the middle tier of the "standard" sizes and nothing more.

And regarding the phones something similar should be done.  So you have the Flagship model, middle tier, and low tier.  Each with their own PRO / PREMIUM model with better specs to lower the distance between the specs of the next tier.

Exactly.
