LOL. You do realize that there's something called "fiscal budgets," don't you? They're only being given a limited amount of money each fiscal year to spend on Xbox consoles in general.

Just because Microsoft has a lot of money doesn't exactly mean it all goes toward the Xbox brand, especially not when it has became a money pit for them.

$280 Billion > $83 Billion

That means Microsoft can buy Sony 33.73 TIMES over!

Sony has to either come out with another Resident Evil game or prepare to go bankrupt. I think they should revive Megaman, and bring Monster Hunter Frontier to the west.

You do realize that any argument about Microsoft doing other things than video games applies to Sony? And the fact is, they still have nearly 4 times as much money. You do the math.

Sony's not going bankrupt anytime soon; don't be stupid. You have no idea how Japanese companies are ran, or how bankruptcy works there. Not to mention that a foreign company can't exactly buy a Japanese company.

Japanese companies are often run like this. They start to fail and begin operating at a loss. They continue to operate at a loss sometimes for many years due to the fear of family shaming. After company no longer can operate at a loss, they are outcast to China where they are cheaply rebranded other a knockoff of their old brand.

LOL. That is certainly NOT true. Look at companies like Nintendo. Always manages to turn a profit. Plus they are in no way "outcast to china."

don't worry, there won't be any competition for xbox next gen.

sony will most likely be bankrupt by then an the playstation brand will be badly damaged as a result.

Yeah, keep thinking that. If anything, the Xbox brand is the one that's on the chopping block by their investors. Plus in no way does a strong product like the Playstation brand that'll be "badly damaged" due to a company being "bankrupt."

If MS can buy any exclusive they want.....why haven't they? What are they waiting for? Things are already pretty dire for them. If what you say is true then shouldn't it already have happened in order to spur their lagging sales?
