I think Sony about to spin-off Playstation as a separate company

I think that's what the PS event all about

Playstation brand is very strong, even stronger than Sony's own brand. It would be easier for them to raise money from investors. Sony will still hold the majority of the stocks of the new company

so if PS fails sony won't fail.

smart move.

Interesting idea. Scary, too.

Sony is not going to wholesale chunk off one of their best divisions. The smart thing Sony would do is either get out of the HDTV market completely, or competitively price their HDTVs. That's where most of their money gets flushed down the drain.

no, it's not wholesale. it's parent-child company relationship. Sony would still own the majority of the child company

subsidiary is not parent-child company relationship. SCE can't go public

i'm talking about spinning off Playstation entirely as a separate company. that separate company can go public and raise money on their own

By definition a subsidiary company is a parent-child company.
