    Damn, I hope they get their shit together and fix whatever needs to be fixed. I don't care if you hate Sony and PlayStation, there is no denying it would be a huge loss to the video game industry to see Sony fall.

    I agree with you on everything you said, It would suck seeing Sony fall, that'll be a big minus to the gaming industry.

    This is not all bad new's, if you actually investigate farther you will see that Sony is right now just finishing some major restructuring and downsizing of it's operation's. I think you will see a massive swing in Sony's fortune's but this is all tied to one thing, the American Economy. The once unquenchable appetite of the mighty USA has been gutted. Almost every company tied to consumer demand in anything but necessity items suffered drastically. However this has taught us one thing its not to over extend and if the American's can actually figure out how to get things back on track they will be in a good position, I hope they keep NY building I can only imagine how it must have depreciated due to the economic climate.

    The "master race" thing got old a long time ago, so drop it. People don't realize that Sony's downfall would be a major blow to the entire industry.

    All hail the PC Overlords, I never doubted them once, never ever.

    In all fairness the hate Sony gets in this thread is fair in my opinion the amount of hate Nintendo gets from this community is astranomical. Yes it sucks that Sony has problems but its the same for any gaming company, if/when any of them go down its a blow for the industry.

    If Sony were to fail, I'd imagine the prices on XBox would go up, simply because they can as people would have no other alternative if they want a controller based console.

    Samsung is actually looking into gaming. They are gods at customer service and hardware

    Samsung Looking to get Into Videogames? | SegmentNext


    Samsung sent out notifiers to its affiliate companies about looking into “the game industry ‘frontier’.”

    The Japanese publication also said Samsung was now hiring videogame developers to begin making its first-party games.
    so who knows. i would love it if samsung replaced sony once they inevitably tank in the next 3-10 years since they actually give a shit.

    I disagree on both accounts, but maybe it's just me...maybe?

    I called them when my LCD TV failed to operate after only two years. They said that they couldn't help with anything about it even when I explained what it was doing. Strike #1 (did not buy another Samsung TV and ended up fixing my old one with a few board replacements, which they didn't help with at all)

    I have replaced my Galaxy SIII once and I'm about to take it in a second time. When reading/watching something with a black background, you can see like "bleeding" in the screen...pretty sure that's not normal. Strike #2

    I don't care what others say about PC gaming. I still see that as a preference of play. I prefer to play on my console...my PS3 console. PC cannot replace that feeling for me.

    So if Sony were to cap size in the near future, doesn't that mean this site would cease to exist? Well for playstation at least

    BBC News - Viewpoint: How Sony slipped back

    Panasonic and Sharp also joins Sony in having their stocks lowered to "Junk" status. This article seems to reinforce why certain companies are successful and others aren't.


    Thou who seeketh the King's sword!
    I am the Old King.
    Show me thine strength and the strength of thine souls.
    Prepare thyself, brave knight.

    I guess this is why sonys gaming sector was the only segment of it to actually show increase then? as they were offering a platform for something instead of it just being the hardware maker for it.
