If sony goes under, the playstation brand (which makes money and is home of the best selling consoles of all time soon to be 3 times in a row) would just be bought out by some other company looking for an easy in to the console market. Either that or they would branch off on their own and just be a console maker similar to Sega and Nintendo in the day.

Assuming PS went down entirely I still wouldn't give a single fuck because PC.

Enjoy being a poorfag. Meanwhile anything worth giving a single shit about at TGS is coming to the ps4. How many new WiiU games did they announce there? Xbone? Nothing? Oh ok.

I don't want to see Sony die out yet, man. They're the only company truly fit to rival Nintendo, and I don't want either to fall before the Xbox does.

Fun Fact: Sony in 2000 had over 100 Billion dollars. In 2014 they have less than 10 Billion and by 2015 end it'll be around 7-8 Billion or less

Short answer shorter: About 15 years

you forgot the part were, IF they do that, they will no longer be able to make consoles that sell at a loss, meaning that they will have to make sorta weak consoles like the WiiU in order to stay afloat and if MS is still around then MS will easily make more powerful consoles than Sony.

Sony: 22 billion in equity
Nintendo: 11.3 billion
Microsoft: 90 billion

While losing 2 billion is a bad thing you have to realize that Sony is a huge fucking company. Equity is the money that would be left if all liabilities were paid.

In regards to assets

Sony: 148 billion
Microsoft: 172 billion
Nintendo: 12 billion

If anything, the only company riding close to the edge is Nintendo because equity is significantly lower than the others. Sony losing 2 billion means share holders are pissed. In reality they've got money to blow and if the ps4 still does well and they kill some of these cancerous divisions they'll be alright.

I don't know why I'm even typing this cause these drone types are close-minded

Playstation is not and has never been a profitable business. The point of Playstation, as with Xbox is to take the living room. It is a vanity project to maintain and grow Sony's brand name with the newer generations. Basically Playstation as a whole is marketing for their other products. Very expensive marketing. Microsoft and Sony's business models would not work without a megacorporation behind them to front the losses. It just isn't a financially viable business on its own. Without a big name and bank account behind them, they wouldn't exist. In all of history only one company has been able to maintain itself on its own, due to hoe it has done business, a severely different way to its competitors. The Sonysoft model of paying out the ass for deals and taking losses on expensive hardware just won't fly. SCE can't be on its own.

The reason MS never has to worry about this is that they are funneling Nokia money to cover Xbox losses as their mobile division and Xbox fall under the same blanket.

Why, so that Marvel can make nothing but movies about the major characters forever?

People like you don't seem to get that a single stupid has limited resources and can only make so many movies a year. That means that anything that's not Iron man, spiderman, x-men, or one of the other major faces would never get made.

Sony having spiderman, and Fox having x-men is actually the best situation.

They've found a killer recipe and I'm excited for Ant-Man. Marvel's on double time and if they had Spiderman they'd do it justoce finally and make so much dough they'd be able to expand probably. Make 6 yearly movies instead of 4, which I'd like to point out is a thing that's happening. Marvel's good with production, they film non-stop all year long

This. I don't think people understand that there is a cost that goes into RnD. Sony had a ton of money in 2000 because the ps1 was a success for 7 years. In 2006 again because the ps2 was such a huge success. Then they spent a bunch of money making the ps3 which fell flat out the door and stuggled to meet the expected demand to return their money. The ps3 is finally doing well and has likely paid back the development cost and is probably even selling at a profit at this point. The ps4 out the gate is doing fantastic and sales are only going to rise come holiday season. That combined with the games set for release early next year they'll be fine. At least SCE. I think they'll need to do some serious cuts to other divisions and hopefully turn the train around. But even if they lost another 2 billion every year they'd have at least another decade in them before they ran out of money. Cry more.

They didn't make money on PS1 or 2. CD players and DVDs sold at less than the standalone devices? That shit was a loss product.

Gee wiz talking out of your ass sure is fun. Notice those losses the year before a new console was to release. Notice how steep the 2006 losses were because the ps3 didn't do well enough to meet the cost of RnD which was also huge. Notice that in 2010 they started making money on the ps3.

The person selling sugar is Samsung. Essentially Sony has to sell at a high cost because they buy their parts from Samsung that is jacking up prices to make sure Sony can't underprice them with their own hardware.
>>
>>265335486
Thats why they lost to samsung in the tv business. Somewhere along the line samsungs quality matched or even surpassed sony while maintaining lower prices. Sony charged a premium not for better quality but just because of the sony name. Unfortunately for sony people dont have brand loyalty when it comes to tv. They just buy the best one for the lowest price.

They had one but the music division freaked and wanted ridiculously strict DRM on it. Sony ended up releasing a DRM laden mess that wouldn't allow non DRM files to be played on it that flopped massively.

For years investors wanted Film and Music to be split so they wouldn't interfere in Electronics but Sony was insistent that every one of the divisions has to stick together. Problem was Film and Music was so powerful with Lobbyist connections that they could overrule electronics constantly.

Years of poor management is really starting to catch up on them.

You can't really compare the handheld business to home consoles.

and it really wasn't that good either. By the end of it's lifespan the gameboy was extremely outdated technology, and the GB color was the same shit visuals+color.

The problem was that the GameGear prioritized power over efficiency. The GameGear was just too powerful for its own good.

The GameBoy Color also should have come out a few years earlier, imo.
The GameBoy lasted a decade before getting replaced and frankly, aside from Mario Land (and the original wasn't that good), Tetris, Kirby's Dreamland 1 and 2, Link's Awakening, Metroid 2 and Pokemon, there wasn't really anything great on the system.

Not really. I'm a sony fan but nintendo used to actually try with their console hardware. It wasn't until the wii that they stopped giving a fuck and kept selling outdated shit. The handheld market has always been theirs so they had little reason to care.

>>265341086

That's not the point I was making bring up the game gear. Hardware performance and durability will go up as competition forces companies to make better shit. Nintendo had no competition so even though a technically superior device was released a decade prior they still insisted on selling up low tier shit like the gameboy because it printed money. Competition is good. It's what stops us from having a device released in 2012 with a lower pixel density than the ngage. There's really no excuse for it. Durability doesn't need to go down as hardware goes up.

Yeah, they always cared about graphics.
During the 6th gen they had objectively, the most powerful console on the market and it cost not even 1/2 of what the ps2 and xbox cost.

The problem?

Nintendo is fucking retarded when it comes to marketing and simply console themselves with selling to the people who like nintendo. They didn't even really try to sell to them, just keep them entertained.
Which is a good business strategy but one that will end in taking your customers for granted and eventually death.
They also ditched rare when they know damned well they should have thrown money at them to continue to make games.

Anyway, when their last console failed they went for fun and hype and coupled with being the only multiplayer local co-op game in town, a novel control scheme, and being cheap as fuck it basically ruled last gen.

However, we all know that nintendo is fucking retarded when it comes to capitalizing on popularity or even recognizing what they have and continuing with it.

Hell, they didn't even capitalize on fucking pokemon when it was at it's height of popularity.

It was fucking wizards of the cost and 4kids.

Battery technology hasn't advanced as quickly as the rest of the hardware. The batteries can't keep up with the processors in terms of power consumption which is why everything has a shorter and shorter battery life despite similar size batteries.

Unless you want to have a system that has a massive battery, you won't be having something like the GBA SP or DS Lite where it can last 20+ hours on a single charge.

MULTIPLE objectively superior devices were fucking released over the lifespan of the Gameboy.
Each and everyone save for the wonder swan was a battery hog that would break in two if you so much as bumped against lightly.

And if that were even remotely true, then most nigh thousand dollar phones wouldn't be easily broken and have the battery life of a single realistic bbc vibrator in an all girls college.

The problem is then it gets too bulky or you gotta cut back on power which means less grafics.

That's the logic behind modern handhelds. The last one to make battery life a huge priority was the DS line.

>>265344093
EA making their own hardware platform would be interesting, the yearly exclusive sports titles would probably push a lot of units, as would Battlefield.

For the longest time I thought Activision was stupid to not make their own platform where CoD and Blizzard games were exclusives.

The average console should be ten times more powerful then PCs. Does't matter if it will drive the cost up to 4k dollars.
There is no excuse.

Is that in addition to their previous $2.1 billion loss?

No.

Consoles exist for several reasons:
A baseline for development
Affordability
Ease of use
Exclusive software
There have been super expensive consoles which had amazing specs for their time, the all did poorly.

But seriously though the reason Sony looks bleak is because they have no exclusives to make somebody buy the console.

I mean business wise they're okay, I mean for people who like games like myself.

There is no reason to own a PS4 since I have a PS3 and PC. The Vita is better to own than the PS4 and will be for at least a few years, which is hilarious.

Exactly.

There is no reason for handheld technology to sacrifice portability, durability, and affordability outside of trying to drive up prices for the end consumer.

>Exclusive software
This basically doesn't apply to PS4.

Kingdom Hearts and Bloodborne are the only aces in the whole they have in this regard.

2 whole games. Everybody knows their 1st part is shit, that's why 3rd party titles don't mind coming to Playstation platforms, no real competition on the platform.

>Kingdom Hearts III (Japanese: キングダム ハーツIII Hepburn: Kingudamu Hātsu Surī?) is an upcoming action role-playing game developed by Square Enix and published by Disney Interactive Studios for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.[5] It will be the first Kingdom Hearts game to be featured on a Microsoft platform, having previously only released on Sony Computer Entertainment and Nintendo platforms, and the first to originally release on more than one console.

It will probably come to PC as well as porting to/from the PS4/X1 to PC is insanely easy. I wouldn't be surprised if Square announced that KH3 and OneButotnAction15 came to PC, the fact they're releasing the shitty Lightning games on PC now is probably to test the market.

The fact Bloodborne is being released roughly 10 months after Dark Souls 2 is a cause for concern. I lot of people I know (as well as me) will be passing on it simply because we're burnt out on the Souls games having spent hundreds of hours on each. If Bloodborne were a Holiday 2015 title, then maybe I'd be somewhat interested.
Also the fact it and The Witcher 3 come out within a few weeks of each other can only be trouble for Bloodborne.

Yea, 150 billion in assets.
