it may well be, but when you have just spent $7 billion on a company, you're gonna want to start reducing costs asap.


My post was sarcasm it isn't, the economy is actually getting worse.

Didn't they acquire 30K employes through the acquisition of Nokia? So they still have thousands more employees than they originally had. People are jumping to conclusions.

It's sad how often Sony Fanboy reassurance is mistaken for trolling.

This. I made a topic about this but of course no trolls to be found in that topic. Ms isn't failing. They acquire Nokia for what 7 billion? More than what sony made in profit last year. The xbox isn't doom. Love how when ps4 goes into 1st place cause of hype. All the sudden xbox is doomed and Nintendo is doomed threads start popping up.

Gamefaqs has always been anti Xbox. Just look at the polls dating back to 2001

Yeah they did. Some people just don't understand that when you acquire 30,000 new employees there are redundant jobs that you need to cut.
