The city remains largely unimpressed by Sony's prospects as an investment after this week's PS4 announcements.

Seeking Alpha advised its readers against buying Sony shares, saying: "What investors really need to consider is what they are getting when they purchase a share of Sony. A very poor balance sheet, and a chain of losses reveal that not even the PS4 can stop Sony's slow decline."

"Even though the PS4 could be a huge hit for Sony, the company's poor financials and large exposure to interest rates should deter investors away. There is also much more information the company plans to unveil on the PS4, and investors should also wait until they hear about the new Xbox."

I actually heard that Sony had been doing well in all it's other departments (ill try and find a link but will probs be too lazy). For example the Sony Xperia phones have been doing selling well ever since they ditched the Ericsson tag. They aren't claiming the top spots but they're certainly holding market share.

I think it's really starting to get a few things right when it comes to gaming too. Without sounding like a fanboy, when it comes to what the two consoles are capable of offering it seems that the playstation 3 is offering alot more in terms of extra features or more bang for your buck when it comes to it's subscription service.

By this i mean the all the photo/video editing, playtv not to mention the bluray player. The free games with ps+ that you can keep until you stop subscribing. I am happpy to admit that the two systems are very similar and that the vita is not as successful as it could have been (I decided today that I would actually buy one in the next 6 months).

What this is about is people being too arrogant to admit the direction they've taken is completely wrong, and that they had a better model in the past they should go back to.

seeking alpha isn't the most unbiased source ever, and it doesn't exactly have the greatest track record of being right either.

That being said, Sony's gaming department always did the opposite of the rest of the company. When PS3 was doing well, the rest of the company did poorly. When the PS3 started dying, the rest of company did well. Not sure if that is indicative of a larger market force, or just survival instinct by sony.
