What???

Video games are worth that much to you? Time to go outside and get some exercise. Come up for some air....maybe? While your at it, maybe look at your avatar and read that book again.

I understand tongue in cheek but jeeeesus.

Fair enough. Hyperbole indeed.

how could sony take over ea. isnt sony like a dead man walking? i mean they are in the dying business of lcd and plasmas, their cameras are being squashed thanks to strong brand of canon and multi feature nikon cameras and whatever income they could get from entertainment division is being wasted on lobbying politicians and lawyers trying to extort and intimidate their customers. and i mean they have 17,8bil usd market capitalization, ea has 5.2bil usd? even sonys ceo stepped down cause he could not stop the descent (70-80% in last 5 years). now samsung seems to learn from sonys fate and knows that they can sell hardware only if its open

You can't compete with Nikon or Cannon, I think they know that. The real problem is many of the consumer electronic companies are going down, it's a two edged sword at the moment. Do you make bleeding edge and lose capital to market towards a small audience? Do you make a lesser product that goes to a larger audience, only to be beat out quicker by another company (slightly better, released shortly after)? Their market is on an incline, probably going to keep that way till the PS4 hype goes down. Which should run them through till next year, at the least the end of this year unless something really bombs.

I don't think Sony is a dead man walking, THQ was a dead man walking (now dead). If you want to compare EA, they are also on a long term decline like Sony. Eventually either the ideas run out or the money runs out, the unfortunate problem with EA is they are a software company. It is a lot easier to have somebody fill that gap, where sony still has a lot of IP to sell off that isn't software. That tends to go for more than software, especially since software ends up getting stale much quicker. What, we on 7.1 systems now? 8.1? That IP will last sony a long time, also being some of the original BR designers. I could list off more stuff, not that I like Sony or PS4 (I don't, actually think Xbox is much much better hardware) but they still have a lot of umph left. A lot.

The problem with EA and Sony(aside from a small nick provided by the financial crisis) it's the problem with any other company that's at the top of it's respective mountain: stagnation/stability and prices. You can keep innovating and perfecting your products, and for that you can slap a pretty price in them, and the people will buy them. Or you can stagnate & rot, enjoy your temporal stability, be blind to market changes and what the customer wants and time will catch with you with a strong kick to the groin.

Sony&EA have gone from being one of the better regarded companies in the world to a joke of a shadow of it's former self. You just can't keep forever slapping your brand and the price it encompasses to crappy products and think, while you swim in money, that people are illiterate or idiots and they won't notice when a better, newer, cheaper product appears.

And the arrogance of the alpha wolf mentality that is behaving like YOU(the company) are perfect and don't give a crap what your customer thinks or wants, so your customer support is just a pay phone for your customer to vent their frustration before you tell him that you're not going to acknowledge the problem and you give a crap about him, so they get even more frustrated, and will avoid buying your products in the future. A brand name it's like ones name (figuratively): your actions speak for you, and the perception(good or bad) that people have of you will determine your future. Do good(keep innovating and surprising favorably) and good shall be done unto you(take my moneeeeyyyy!!). The other way around for doing bad. It's that easy, really.

It's good, in the case of Sony, that they realize they're not what they used to be and be willing to change. Time will catch with EA, eventually, and hopefully they'll turn that lesson into something productive, like developing brains and start thinking what their management has done and how to fix it...although, seeing what has been done in the past two years, that huge line of EA errors and just imbecile cluster***** just for the lulz, I don't have that much hope that anything can be done.

PS: What amazes me it's how such big companies can go from being at the top with perfectly good bussiness practices to just thrash their reputation/money with such shortsighted economics. It's been proven time and again that doing the things right time and again turns out a lot more money than just doing the usual, or worst, lowering your quality and what you spend to grow the margin. But then again, shareholders want their next share revenue paycheck to grow a lot, so they are content whit that bussiness practices and idiot economics.

Then the time of reckoning wiht what they've been doing comes and all is panic and cries and sorries I won't do it again. applaud.gif
