View Full Version : Sony's End?

I've been hearing a lot of rumors about Sony recently, everyone is saying that they're not gonna make a PS4, or a new console for like 10years, due to the PS3 not selling as well as it should've been selling. So, is this a rumor, or is it actually happening? D:

The rumours of their demise are great exaggerated.

Sony's business plan is for their consoles to have 10 year cycles; it has nothing to do with their economic situation.

Sony has been having problems as a whole. But then with the economy many companies are having problems.

The PS3 is selling alright. It's actually been selling better than the Wii in Japan lately.

The "10 year cycle" Sony boasts about has nothing to do with when the next console will come just more to do with how long that particular console is supported by them. The PS2 is on a 10 year cycle, it's on it's 9th year and still getting some support. Not alot, but some. The PS1 was the same way.

So just because Sony says the PS3 has a 10 year life cycle doesn't mean that the PS4 wont come out 5 or 6 years into the PS3's life.

The "10 year lifecycle" was Sony rep's talking out of their hind quarters, which is admittedly what they're supposed to do since they wanted to hype the system. The reason the PS2 is a 10 year console is because they have such a large install base, one that PS3 won't ever match.

Sony goofed and thought that everyone who ever touched a PS2 would buy a PS3, instead those people are all buying Wii's. They probably won't recover the costs of the PS3, but they still have a 'never say die' fanbase and a brand name that is recogniseable; I'd assume that unless the whole company goes under, they'll make a PS4.

Lol.. a lot of my friends have turned their backs on their 360s and now mostly own a PS3. Sony's far from over.
