Oh sony is on fire look at those numbers.

The PS4 is the only console ever selling more than 200 million games for 4 years straight impressive.

110 million units sold,damn they can reach probably 135 or 140 millions when all is say and done.

Sony’s profits dive as stores, cinemas close during pandemic

By YURI KAGEYAMAMay 13, 2020 GMT

Tokyo-based Sony’s profit in January-March crashed 86% to 12.6 billion yen ($118 million), a fraction of the 87.9 billion yen earned a year ago.

The spread of COVID-19 has crimped consumer spending, shut movie theaters, canceled events and sent share prices falling — all damaging for a company with sprawling businesses like Sony.

Quarterly sales and operating revenue fell a combined 18% to 1.7 trillion yen ($16 billion).

Wait so because it die years ago it doesn't matter? Hahahahaaaaaaa

How about Bing and the xbox loss?

Man not every market MS enter is a win for them,they get quite beat up in some markets,hell windows phones another miserable attempt on MS part,as google and Apple chew and spit MS.

Hell Windows phones,Zune and Bing are quite more horrible defeats compare to the PS beating,alto is close on the PS2 generation that was one really big one sided whoop ass.

Amazing Software numbers. Crazy all Sony home consoles except PS3 crosses the 1 billion software sold mark while PS3 last reported 999.4m software sold last year report.

Diverse games library allowed PS to thrive and I hope they can continue this trend for PS5. Can't wait for next gen!

There where articles in the general press claiming Sony could go bankrupt, one even said they had a 70% (ish) chance of it happening (cant remember full details).

They restructured and came back good, but they had a real rough patch and the claims on this forum where fair at the time all be it wrong.

Yeah don't believe everything you read from analyst.

Analysis can be just as biased as people in this place,take patcher for example.

Sony went through a restructure having given investors profit warnings and actually announced they where doing it.

I actually complemented Sony on how well they came back

You simply just want to argue and put people down.

I really don't get it, grow up.

@tormentos: So cows on average only buy 3 (just under) games a year lol. I told you cows spend more time on here talking about games then they do playing them, and we all know you don't even own a PS4 LMFAO.

You would think with the money they're making they could throw you a PS4 that's lying around the office :)

The average console gamer across the board only plays F2P games or, big budget yearly releases; time and money are a premium for a lot of people. Microsoft themselves continuously point to the decline of F2P revenue as a negative on revenue and profits. lol

On the flip side, Sony has 5x exclusives that have sold over 10M+ this generation. They had 4x between PS1 to PS3. :)

You fuckers don't buy any games at all. That's why MS had to shovel that bullshit on Game Pass.🤣 Who their right mind would buy a turd like Bleeding Edge at full price? Stay simpin' for Xbox.

I mean, its pointless to go buy PS4 now for this year to say the least and might as well wait for PS5 since its now BC with PS4 games. Not directly at you sevenizz (well sort of) but for anyone who hasn't own a PS4.

Not sure what you're talking about. Next-gen is looking good. I'm not seeing the "imminent disaster" you're talking about. The hardware will be decently powerful (roughly the equivalent of a RTX 2080, if not more?), the SSD streaming sounds incredible, and Sony established new successful IPs like Horizon and Spider-Man that will have many successful sequels, and whatever Naughty Dog next-gen game and God of War game on the PS5 will be a stunner.

Is this the tired game where Lemmings take something good and spin it around into something bad using limited words like "damage control"? Also, you're buying a PS5 the same way you bought a PS4. Maybe that's damage controlling, since the Xbox One was woefully insufficient when it came to games, genres and consumer satisfaction.

@tormentos said:

@Pedro:

His post doesn't even make sense. In order to damage control, something disastrous must happen or be looming on the horizon for Sony next-gen. And yet he provides no specifics about what is going to cause disaster or failure. Damage control means you're trying to hide or deflect attention away from bad things brewing. Where are the bad things?

Something tells me that he doesn't even know how to use the words 'damage control' despite being on these forums since 2002.

In this thread: Lies the Lemmings Tell You

  • Not all Sony games are movie games or anime games. Look at the Top 20 sellers lists, or what is most popular every month on PSN and sale time. And just because a game has cinematics doesn't mean it has no gameplay. You get excited over Gears of War and played GTAIV and GTAV with tons of cinematics. You are happy Hellblade 2 is exclusive, and are happy Sony lost exclusivity to games like Heavy Rain and Detroit Become Human. I guess when it's on the PS4 you call it "movie game", but when it's on your system you call it "good interactive entertainment." I call it desperate double standards.
  • Sony gamers buy way more than 3 games. Remember, there's also PS+ games and lots of sales going on throughout the year (Sony arguably has better sales than MS and Nintendo and more frequent ones). I bet even Lemmings buy more than 3 games on their lonely machine. Why would Sony gamers buy less and yet sell way more? Think about it, you.
  • "Sony gamers are damage controlling and worried about next-gen". Where is this occurring? What is there to be worried about? If you're still on about the power difference, that is nothing. Leave it to the same group of people who said Sony would be doomed because no true 4K and no UHD player. Turns out their own console sold even worse than Sony's. They warned us like they were sages, and yet they flopped even harder themselves. Interesting...

Uncharted 4, Horizon, God of War, Spiderman and TLOU Remastered. GT Sport is pretty close too; 8M about a year ago.

It's fair to say TLOU2 will very likely hit that number as well.

Sony’s profits dive as stores, cinemas close during pandemic

By YURI KAGEYAMAMay 13, 2020 GMT

Tokyo-based Sony’s profit in January-March crashed 86% to 12.6 billion yen ($118 million), a fraction of the 87.9 billion yen earned a year ago.

The spread of COVID-19 has crimped consumer spending, shut movie theaters, canceled events and sent share prices falling — all damaging for a company with sprawling businesses like Sony.

Quarterly sales and operating revenue fell a combined 18% to 1.7 trillion yen ($16 billion).
