Seems like MS is the only one holding strong

sony simply thinks selling its only profitable division, gaming, might save it, the playstation would live on, it would just belong to somebody else...maybe, nintendo? probably not


Their most profitable division is 'services.' What that exactly entails, I have no idea, but it is a huge money maker for them.

to be fair, MS could give away more money than Sony and Nintendo are worth as a whole as still have way more money than both combined

they could toss the entire xbox division away right now and it would have virtually no impact on the company

Do you have that link permacopied? How many times are you going to post an article as fact that is nothing but speculation? Jesus, you are one pathetic person.


The second link has quotes from Yoshida himself…its not speculation. Seems like your in denial.


No it doesn't. Read it before you proclaim things.


"Yoshida told Re/code specifically that Sony intends to shift toward a "service-orientated" business."

Sorry not a direct quote but that doesn't sound like speculation.

And either Sony or Nintendo could have bought out Microsoft when it first got off the ground. Lehman Brothers died a spectacular death (that it totally deserved). The business world changes day to day.

Microsoft has this thing called "Windows". Windows 8 is failing, but it's competition, Windows 7, is doing pretty damn good. They're also working on Windows 9, so...

You are aware that shifting doesn't mean ending all existing lines of business? Increasing their focus on a "service-orientated" business means just that, they will look to add more service businesses.

Nothing there can be used to infer the Sony leaving the gaming market. The PS and Vita seems to have gained a number of "service-orientated" options already.

Most people who aren't complete fanboys already knew this was likely sony's last console attempt. Bankruptcy doesn't leave much room for future expensive R&D development projects.


Go read this topic below, & shut up.

I shouldn't belabor the point, but do you remember that Sumitomo copper trader? He cost them $2 billion dollars. By himself. That is pretty damn hard to do. But they're still alive and kicking.
