Seriously?

Wow...No wonder they're going bankrupt...


You're joking though, right?


Why is his words unbelievable? Sony has been make dumb decisions like this for over a decade and at some point, those mistakes will catch up to them.


The PS4 is a small division within Sony, a 3rd party game that probably would have sold maybe 1.5 million units on the PS4 isn't the reason Sony has finical issues. Do you even know how much money Sony/Microsoft get from 3rd party games? Not that much compared to the devs and publishers.... and these "dumb decisions" you claim they've been making for decades, please elaborate.

There is a big reason Sony's liabilities are almost equal to their assists.

This might be a little petty. But I convinced someone not to buy a Sony TV because I told them Sony was going bankrupt.


Sony TVs have been pretty bad for years, so it was a good call either way.

No because it doesn't include digital sales.

If they were smart, they would have released it on both consoles for max profits.

Pretty much.

Sony as an entity isn't going anywhere anytime soon, but a large number of irrelevant divisions in Sony will be gone within the next 10 years because they simply can't keep bleeding money. It's rendered their credit rating non-existent. Both Moody's and Fitch have Sony Corp's credit rating as speculative grade, which is also junk status. Only S&P have them as BBB-, which is literally the borderline of investment grade and speculative grade. However, their outlook as of Q1 2014 is negative, so expect them to drop them to speculative next rating. Without a reliable line of credit to rely upon, downsizing will have to occur once they literally can't afford to maintain budgets or salaries. So expect to see more people laid off, more buildings sold, or departments closed; the last of which likely means people laid off and buildings sold.

The problem isn't that Sony branches out to diversify. Diversification is a good thing for a large company like them. The problem is that they don't pick smart avenues like Microsoft does. Instead, they pick markets like MMO's where there is a ton of competition already, and in which small developers can compete with them quite easily, or TV's where there is also a ton of competition and not much profit to gain from them unless you command a large amount of the market share, which they don't.

Sony is a sinking ship, and their games division is the only bilge pump working.


and their pictures entertainment division, and their music entertainment division, and their insurance division.
