sony's 79% chance of going bankrupt in 2 years article

 

 

I'm very well cognizant that sony's gaming division is at its strongest but if things do not pick up for them in about a couple of years they have a 79% chance of going bankrupt and this correlates to my motivation of spending money for accessories and games for a system.  Why should you spend money on a platform that will die quickly in two years?  I'm just really worried and wonder what you guys think of this or if you have any other sources and evidence that this may not be the case I'd gladly appreciate it.  I do want to deem my ps4 worth of a purchase but I feel like I'm going to be playing on an obsolete system if Sony goes under.  Please help.

Isn't this all the more reason to keep it. Wouldn't the ps4 sky rocket in price then???? Am I doing this right?

I think its very legitimate though.  If you guys are spending your hard earned money on these consoles and then the manufacturer goes out of business how would you feel?

According to armchair economists and others related to that ilk. You and the other +4,000,000 of us are fine.

To teach is a moment's superiority; not to, everlasting.


Fabulous!

I think if Nintendo is still in business, SONY will still be a market holder for at least a few more months lol
