I bought Sony stock last month for 10.25 a share. Made a thread people laughed.. Shares are at 15.12.. I didnt expect over 15 till 2014.. China lifting ban would boost sony and nintendo so much and MS is doomed in these regions.. Could be deep water only banking on US market for MS.

These coming 2 years are going to be nuts for the industry

I dont think the China thing will make a difference.

There are more video game stores in Shanghai than London, and every major city that I've visited stocks them.

Xbox doesn't do so well here because it is just pirated to high flip, but PS3 sells alright. Games are imported from HK (which is why I'm still waiting for Nino Kuni)

No MS is not gonna be in "deep water" MS is not in massive debt like Sony is. While this will be good for Sony, but it wont kill off MS like you, and a lot of the other trolls here would like.

MS is doing strong right now, so it would have to take a poor console generation to hurt them. Like Sony and the PS3.

Deep water? No. Continuing to have the slowest selling console of this gen won't do much to them.

I think it would make a difference.

No longer would the VG sector have to operate in the grey market,and no longer would people have to deal with whatever price that illegal vendor has set.

I don't have to make assumptions. I make predictions, about my assumptions about my predictions that can be more or less my assumptions that can be totally about my predictions.

Love how when it comes to Sony, non-official reports and "shipped" consoles = "sold" consoles. No other company has ever said "l0l guise we shipped nintey eighty billion items but only sold 12 but we shipped that many! so its good guise!"

No need to get upset again. Maybe things will go better for you next gen.

Are you talking about Microsoft as in the XBOX part of it, or are you talking about Microsoft as a whole?

The console with the greater spec generally loses.
