Any Cows or Sony fans with their heads in the sand about just how incredibly dire Sony's financial situation is, this article says it all from the horses mouth. Its not just the gaming division that needs the PS4 to succeed. It is the whole damn company that needs it to be a huge success. That's a ton of pressure and even if Sony outsells the One, and that's far from an absolute in years to come, the company needs it to do so well its shocking.

welcome to 3 months ago lems, still grasping at straws I see. PS4 already has 3 million locked and loaded for this year, so prepare those butts for the hurt that is coming to you guys with this gen. It's gonna be a slaughter. ;)

Sony has already sold over a million, and it hasn't even come out yet. Try harder lems.

Let me put things in perspective. 3 million sales is great at launch but once the crap hits the fan and they still have 3 million sales 2 years later, they are done.

All those preorders are from blind fanboys who want the PS4 to be the best. The reality is not that.

I think everyone will be happy if you guys keep your lemming circle jerk in on thread. You guys are acting as bad as you claim cows to be.

LMAO!! That's hilarious. Cerny's game gets a 4 score on Gamespot. I hope the PS4 doesn't fail miserably, but if it does Sony will have enough BRICKS to build a new HQ. lol!!

Its still relevant considering this recent report.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-11-01/sony-loses-2-2-billion-in-market-value-after-hirai-forecast-cut.html

And kudos to pre-order sales. Wii-U came out running fast as well... While no one can honestly say they know how this will pan out, it paints a clear picture that Sony is in very, very bad shape financially.

What are you talking about? All the launch consoles are sold at a loss. You have to be successful in the long run to return this money.

Ever hear of R&D? That money is not recouped until later down the road.

#21 Edited by blackace (20550 posts) -

Dude stop. I can't stop laughing. That is so funny. That's exactly how they were with the PS2 and PS3 for the most part. If you had a problem with your console, you'd better call your lawyer as Sony didn't want to hear about it.

Let's hope 1.5 million of them don't have HMDI, O/S and controller issues. Tomorrow will be Sony's time to shine or fail miserably. I haven't heard any hadware problems with the XB1 yet.

  • Not a single Xbone game in the Top 29.
  • Not a single Xbone game in the Top 100 of best Sellers of 2013 (So far)
  • More PS4 preorders in the US and a lot more worldwide

Keep playing Gamespot reviews in empty XBL servers. Face it lems, the Xbone is a flop in its strongest market, no hope for you guys. PS4 looking to outsell Xbone 2 to 1 in the US :D

And yet you're acting like the cow stereotype in how you guys are dealing with them. Not as though that was ever not the case, mind you.

So you're saying you're exactly the same as the cows? Good to know.

Does Sony Fan hold meetings to see who can come up with the dumbest post or is it a universal skill for all of them?

I cant agree more. After a year of abuse from cows the truth comes out. Lems should keep this down to about 20 threads a day.

But seriously.... ok, bad pun :)

Seriously, pre-orders on one site don't tell the whole story. Both consoles are selling out of all the stock they have. Both are going to be a success. The topic of this thread is Sony's financial shape and how important PS4 is to its continued existence. If that one picture that I have seen you post several times helps you sleep at night, go for it. But don't post it thinking it tells the whole story about sales. It doesn't.

Nope but what I'm saying is that lems having fun for 24 hours shouldn't bother you so much and if it does then there's a PS4 sub forum for you

Sony admits that if the PS4 doesn't do well that the dark times will become even darker than the darkest dark.

Don't let the sad news I bring affect anyone getting their midnight releases tonight. Have fun and don't forget your 8 post it notes for balance.

Enjoy!!

You post Amazon preorders.

Bud, no way people will. If they decide they don't want it, they'll still buy it and make money.

Its not bothering me. I'm just the demonstrating the fact that all fanboys are the same. You think this is some new thing that will only happened for a short time at launch? lol, no. Lems do the same stuff as cows all the time. Only difference is that Lems haven't had almost anything to circle jerk about most of the year.

At 60 bucks a loss they'd need to sell a game to break even which is most likely to happen, I think they'll be able to make some decent revenue with PSN+ now.

#41 Edited by good_sk8er7 (4321 posts) -

Someone would buy the PS brand, or the first party studios would just split off and make games for other systems.

Who knows, if they don't succeed maybe they'll go the route of Sega and abandon everything but game development.

$60 Dollars isn't $60 going straight into Sony's pocket. Retailers make about $10-$12 a game and if a middle supplier is involved, there goes more $$$. Other parties getting a cut is the Developer and Publisher.

I have seen a few other videos doing this. I could only guess that it is every PS4 doing it.

So how a systems exclusives measure up doesn't matter anymore? Only sales charts now? Then again, this is from the same folks who swore $ony would never charge for online play cuz they love gamers and reasons. That karma/Knack pic is genius.
