    Sony's Stock Rises After Xbox One Reveal


    Microsoft's Xbox One reveal event coincided with a dramatic jump in Sony's stock price.

    Sony's stock leapt up to $22.55 from when the Microsoft event started at 1pm Pacific time, a significant jump the $20.94 it was at noon Pacific.

    Microsoft's stock price, on the other hand, barely moved from the beginning to the end of the event, opening at $34.99 and closing at $35.02.

    A lot of factors play into stock pricing, of course, but it's difficult to ignore the remarkable spike in Sony's value that took place during Microsoft's event.
    Microsoft should've never added that second fee..

    Well, it seems like they've decided to go ahead and shoot themselves in the foot. Why on earth would they think adding that fee would be a good idea?

    Too much listening to the people controlling their company and not enough listening to the people that support their company.

    But instead of girls wearing casual clothing, they'll be Japanese Sony executives wearing suits. I think we can all assume being at Hirai's office right now might actually be a lot of fun .

    A tad coincidental? Give it a few days to see the proper effect...

    I don't get it. Is there a new gaming peripheral coming out for teenage girls?

    Microsofts revenue is only 4% related to Xbox... bill gates returned to the richest man in the world last week and hes just running of the parts he still has a stake in pretty much.

    Microsoft could do away with pretty much all of the fees and still make profit on it but they don't give a crap about doing anything for free if they can avoid it.
    I think most people who actually play more than the casual kind of console games will swap to ps4 or PC, unfortunately Microsoft will still make just as much money from windows installs off of PC adopters, since windows is the most supported OS for gaming pretty much.

    They have heaps of fees now lol, Xbox live to watch TV, on your TV.. through your xbox Paying for used games can only use the one game disc with one profile you can take a game over to a friends place and play it if you log in under your account, but you have to install it on their console first, and once you leave with disc or if they try to play it there they will basically have to buy the game again for near retail price.

    Im almost considering putting in my ps4 preorder now as a heap of people will be jumping ship to sony or to PC, probably be less availabiltiy of Ps4, will probably still wait until E3 I thought all these Xbox rumours wouldnt be true because I didnt think they would be so stupid, but I suppose I was wrong.
