    Exactly, people will twist this and say Sony is doomed.

    They're focusing on what matters right now. The gaming division is their biggest cash cow. If they can return the PS brand to the glory days with the PS4 they'll be living large.

    They have to make money back from the asshole that was Howard Stringer aka jabba the hut.

    look at this $#@!head.




    Okay now, Their stock has went up at least 5 points from when KAZ took over Sony. Since Howard Stringer stepped down and Kazuo took over you can see it in the stock. While the stock is still low, to low it's going up but you have to remember that Kazuo is fixing all this $#@! that was caused by...............ta ta tata ta taaaaaaaaaaa Howard dumbasss Stringer.

    you can see where the changes came and the proof is in the chart, it's a fact. You can see where Kaz started selling buildings, getting rid of certain fundings, doing a mass layoff.

    I hate to see anyone lose their job but Sony/Erricson made $#@!ty phones that never took off.

    I say Nokia is next. Their commitment to WP7 was suicide.

    Not doomed if they trimmed most of their businesses. Their PlayStation division seems to be the only decent thing they got going for them. They are getting their asses handed to them in just about everything else.

    As for glory days? If you measure by how dominant they were in the PS1/PS2 era, those days will never return. They are up against Microsoft, Nintendo and soon Steambox in the console arena while going up against many more in the mobile arena.......... and it's a snowball's chance in hell that they will return to that status.
