Ign stated Sony's gaming division has remained steady.

They apparently lost a bit of cash due to the flopping of White House Down. They also lost some due to the price drop not working out.
*totally called that one a while back*

What's the world coming to when people won't go to the movies to watch a white guy and a black guy save the White House?

What the world really needs is another comedy where people switch bodies. Either that or a black & white buddy cop flick where the white guy learns how to listen to rap music from the Black guy.

It's like you're reading my personal movie scripts as I write them.

Don't forget the ex-military muscle-man who gets pulled back into conflict when his daughter gets kidnapped.

No, no, we need more whimsical farces, where misunderstandings happen aplenty.

It's funny, people say Vita has no games, yet defend a port to no end like MH3U, then hate on P4: Golden like its a direct, direct port. Hilarious irony.
