I mean, let's face it, they're bleeding money right now, and they're probably going to bet everything on this console. The PS4 will need to have a PERFECT launch to give Sony even a SLIGHT chance of avoiding bankruptcy.

While it is possible, Sony's games division isn't what is in trouble. We will see Sony go through a restructuring and they will lose some of their divisions that are the problem soon. So, while possible for PS4 to be the last, I think it is unlikely.

It could be anything.

On a related note of money loss...

How much did MS lose on Windows 8 and Surface Tablets? From what I have seen, they would not be considered successful.

It's possible for any of the big three to have their last consoles next gen. Sony weren't even meant to exist beyond 2006 on this board.

Guess why they have made an agreement with Olympus.

Not for the digital cameras, but for the medical devices.

Japan is ageing, and Sony has found a profitable market with a strong potential.

Sony's problem is that they have a large, confusing product (e.g., they have something like 3 different TV product lines) line for their other devices. What we are going to see is Sony streamlining their other products which I think will give them a better market position. The PS4 will have to perform well to keep the game division up and running, but not the company as a whole.
