The factory which manufacture cameras that i have work is closing, I know Japanese ,you dont tell them what to do,its their culture they stick the old ways.The reason why they have been overpass by Koreans..What else Sony can sell..camera is dead, their phone is dead ,their tv is dead,they will just gamble with their Playstation..if this flops Sony earnings is dead.I got no shares SNE nor short..
i agree that the ps4 will be a risk on sony's part. however, any fundamentals are being overridden by a weakness in the yen. the weak yen translate to exporting competitively, thus creating a larger audience. 'dead products' seem a little subjective, but your sentiment shows how easily they can take back share from what they lost to the likes of samsung and apple. investors don't care about how they run it, they just want to be shown the money and sony is catering to that
I disagree. Sony smartphones is doing great outside of the US. Playstation, digital contents, and their Sony Entertainment Network is the future of Sony. I don't believe they will spinoff based on pressure from outsiders(Investors). Full steam ahead for Sony in 2013-2014.
