Shorter Sony: Please stop asking about the PlayStation Network.
So, the future of the PlayStation brand is a dedicated gaming/tablet/phone device that will attempt to compete with Apple and Microsoft/Nintendo all at the same time? Good luck with that.
Does anyone talk about Kinect or Move games anymore, or is it just the hacks modders have made with the hardware?
Would love to see how the three console’s motion sensing software titles did over the big holiday sales period.
Were there any? I don’t seem to remember anyone talking about Kinect Sports or anything on PlayStation Move. Or the Wii, for that matter.
Perhaps everyone was too busy using their iPads and Kindles 3′s?
You think you own that PlayStation 3 sitting under your HDTV? Think again, sucker.
The PS2 is ten today. Hooray! Will PS3 make it to ten, and with the success of its predecessor to boot? Maybe!
HAHA. Just kidding. Fricking paperweight is doomed, and the gravestone will look like the Arc motion controller.
Profits were “flat” in Sony’s PlayStation division. No surprise, really. What I’d love to hear (but never will, for obvious reasons), are the private conversations execs are having when they view these numbers. I mean, the PS2 is selling at a 2.1 million per quarter clip, and the PS3 is at 4.2 million. Which is more, obviously, but that’s still a large chunk of new PS2 owners out there each quarter.
You think those execs, in secret, are saying to themselves, “maybe, uh, maybe we should have stuck it out with the PS2 a while longer. I mean, look at the Wii–” At which point they’re summarily shot, of course.
But maybe they aren’t saying that, at loud at least. I can admit that. But I know someone who probably IS saying this: The shareholders.
