    Well I have been saying this for some time now. What you guys need to understand is that this is a money game. Right now Sony is hurting big time. Basically the company Sony that we all grew up with is not the company of today. They are no longer the leader in any technology. Back in the day they use to have the best audio equipment, the best tv's, the best car stereo equipment, the "Best" (depends on who you talk to) game system, the best music industry, and a big time failing computer industry. Every time they attempt to make a new media standard it flops. Bottom line is this, Sony can not continue to takes hits and continue to produce a game system that looses money the day it is purchased. They would be better off making games like sega did. But honestly I dont think they would succeed at that either. I mean what "SONY" games are hot sellers? As a matter of fact what games does Sony make? Sega has been making HOT games for years so they did the transition with no problem. But Sony? Dont think it would happen. My prediction as I tell all my friends....Sony will be out of business as a company in 5 - 10 years.

    Sony actually does have their own games. I cannot think of many GOOD games, though. Dark Cloud is a Sony-made game.

    I definately agree. The reason Sony has my buisness is because of SquareEnix and Namco.

    I don't think there will be either. They are taking too many hits in the wallet, and it's going to catch up with them sometime.

    but only time will tell. i will say this because i feel im qualified, own both a ps3 and a nintendo wii. please remeber its( my opinion ) the sony ps3 is a blast. it offers alot at launch and the graphics are mind boggling. i thought that twilight princess had terrific graphics, and it DOES!!!! but honestly nintendo has been kind of a let down so far for me. i enjoy twilight princess and wii sports, ad red steel even though i strongly strongly believe it should of been mature- it needs more blood, its to kiddy(im not saying that wii is kiddy) but this game is kiddy. the biggest reason is because nintendo has units but its software stuff is not up, opera broswer, news, weather which is gonna be awesome, and of course they didnt have s**t for virtual console games. but i have all the faith in nintendo on getting its roots. as of right now the ps3 is better then the wii in my opinion. but i know nintendo will come out with some good games in the future. as for sony, they will do fine and they will succeed and yes there will be another ps4,another xbox, and someday a new nintendo because these are companies, and if they think they can make money they will and the video game industry is STILL climaxing to being a huge industry. i more thing id like to add is that i think sony will have a ps4 is that ive been to many forums on both and well im not saying all people but id say a majority of gamers for wii are younger than 20. And ps3 seems to be 18+, thats just a estimate, doesnt mean everyone. but it kinda adds up because a 13 year cant spend 1000 dollars, unless hes rich. adults can afford to spend alot more hense being older because they have jobs. so the point is that all 3 companies will come out with a new console in the future including a ps4!!!
    this is my opinion and please respect it. i am not trying to be biased im just trying to explain why i think there will be a ps4.

    I think Sony messed up because the PS3's price tag of $600 scares off even the most hardcore of gamers. However I don't think this will be the end of Sony in the video game race because they have a lot of money to dump into the next gen of systems to try to get back in the race. I do think that Sony has a long road ahead of them because of their launch. You can see the lack of interest in the system in the second hand sales of the system. When if first came out people were paying $1,500-$2,000 for them and now people selling them would be lucky to get $850 for it. I have also heard due to the shortage of PS3's, many parents are offering their children a 360 for x-mas and a Wii when they are back in stock because they can not get a PS3 in time for x-mas. Also many of they game creators who were contracted exclusively to Sony are now choosing to make their games available on all platforms which shows a lack of faith in the PS3.

    sony will fail if blue ray does. every gamer needs to buy 30 game for the ps3 before sony needs to make a profit. 30 games... thats a TON!!!!! well if they make blue ray the standard for the next hd movie format, it will be worth loosing 300$ a console. Sony needs blue ray. It is a major gamble and if it doesent pan out its all over, for their game division at least. Blue ray is Odysis and the ps3 is the trojan horse and sony are the greeks. its last ditch effort to get blue ray into the homes of everyone that buys the ps3. to win a format war as big as vhs vs betamax Is huge for sony (they are avoding taxs in japan) and everyone knows people buy more movies then games, so if sony had royalties on every home movie bought a few years down the road (when all tv is hd) they will be back as strong as ever. Sony could win the console war, but still loose the hd dvd war, and if they do they still loose. I think they need both to pull themselves out of debt.

    But then there were only two major consoles makers back in the old days and the others like PC-engine and Neo-Geo never make it to other continents if you knew what they were.....

    Anyway, Sony is a big company that can weather the storms, they won't just give away the emperor they built up in the gaming sector so easily. however, PS3 is rather disappointing apart from its graphics power. Xbox 360is even hopeless, can't find a good title.

    However, i'm thinking Nintendo still have a lot of secrets under their hat, they may just release an upgrade version of Wii that support HD with more powerful graphics... to put them on par with PS3 and Xbox and trump them with the good gameplay exp.... :smilewinkgrin:

    C'mon guys! Sony isn't "going under" anytime soon.
    A.) The Playstation will probably slowly get fixed, as the way the PS1, and PS2 did, until it is a good solid console. Just buyin 1 at launch is f###n stoopid!

    B.)even if, and i mean IF, Playstation went out of business, sony has PLENTY of other resources to keep it afloat for quite awhile (10-20yr~?~) such as:

    TV's
    Media Players
    Computers (Vaio anyone?)
    Sony pictures : (aka Spiderman, etc....etc...)
    ETC>>>>>>.......

    So-my guess is even if the PS3 belly flops BAD sony has enough to float it just fine, AND even develop a totally different game system if they so chose.

    and comparing it to SEGA? like apples to oranges bro.
