*Sniffs* Yep Troll

 

Sony has made a few bad decisions over the years. They did take a hurt on PS3 sales in the e beginning profit wise. But Its all done. Thy found ways to make them for cheaper costs. So they make money on each unit they sold and still sell today. Saga made lots of bad decisions. Back in the day they were great but they went in areas no one knew would work. Saga add on CD, and CD 2 systems. Saga 32X system, Saga Saturn. No real great games for it. Dreamiest was good but they tried for on line stuff for its time just didn't work well and also. What killed Saga was all the piracy on there disk based game. There wasn't much to stop it out there. Poor game sales equals Saga hurting in the end. Where Sony Will have good game sales so this will only add more funds for Sony. Seeing how they stop Piracy as much as possible vs back in the day do a disk copy on a PC and boom instant game copy. Sega was also charging a good chunk of change for all there add ons. Not everyone could walk up and buy them.

Don't forget, Sony has their hands in places where Microsoft and Nintendo dare not tread:

 

Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE)

 

Columbia / Tristar Motion Picture Group

 

Sony Pictures Television

 

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment

You do realize they do other things besides video games, right?

FInancial Trouble, yes. It's very safe to purchase a PS4. They are fine, don't worry, the worst case is that they branch off the playstation brand away from the other divisions of Sony. Which won't effect your PS4 in any way.


Thats NEVER going to happen if Sony continues the upswing they are in

Exactly, Skyfall.... which came out in 2008..... had a net profit of about $800million totalling $1billion if you include the $200million it cost to make the movie.
