"Expect closure of the long-suffering on-line division in order to conserve resources."
"The entertainment division could be spun off, sold to someone like Sony"
" (The entertainment division) Unable to make a profit it will increasingly be seen as a distraction to the battle for saving Windows"


If Sony ends up buying Microsoft's entertainment division. It's actually a pretty good argument they have. Considering how bad Apple is starting to slaughter Microsoft. In a market where more and more people are going Apple and buying less and less Microsoft they might be forced to shed the division. As it makes them no profit and the online portion causes them to lose almost a billion a year.

Sony can't buy Microsoft out... It'd be impossible. Sony just now got in the red and out of debt -- They certainly seem to be on the right track, making money and ramping up new projects, but they have like 3 buildings left and they need all 3 of them. I don't see them selling anything more or buying anything more up for a long time...

Financial Experts and Forbes seem to disagree with you.

But who are they to say your financial credentials are in question ^_^. I'm sure the last Final Fantasy game you played you saved up a ton of gil ^_^.

Nowhere in there did I read him even hinting that Sony was or could entertain the thought of buying their game division.

I read it now... I see it. But that ain't happening.

Why not it only cost Microsoft money. They ONLY lose from it. They are about to start bleeding dry as everyone rejects Microsoft 8 and Surface Tablets. They really won't have any choice.

It'll either get gobbled up by Sony or someone else. Why shouldn't Sony jump on the opportunity? Maybe if we're lucky they'll release better shooter official xbox like controllers to ^_^.

I just wish they weren't losing so badly to Apple. Apple never deserved to recover. Steve Jobs was a tyrannical piece of garbage.
