The first links are from May 2013 where Sony's top investor was calling for a split within the company. This investor sent a personal letter to Kaz pushing for this. This investor stated in the letter that his company would invest another $2 billion if Sony would comply with these requests.
Today, 9 months later it appears the plan has started to go through. The computer division has been sold along with spinning off the T.V. division in wake of a $1.1 billion loss was forecast. Sony is doing this to put more effort into mobile devices. Is this really smart investing more resources in a field controlled by Apple and Samsung?
One analyst talks about this in a Bloomberg interview. A good 5 minute piece.
5,000 jobs cut already this year with 10,000 cut last year.
So my point to all this (besides being a direct response to Animal-Mothers thread http://www.gamespot.com/forums/system-wars-314159282/investors-want-ms-ceo-to-dump-xbox-brand-31073379/#184 ) is could this investor have the influence to get Sony back on track? OR is Sony willing to do anything to get investors backing at this point.
With billions invested and billions lost could the PS4 and the Xbox One be the last great consoles to ever see the light of day?
Investors look at the previous consoles from both companies as a loss. What makes the PS4 and Xbox One any different?
