Sony: Game Sector Is "Weak"

Earlier, we reported that Sony was sucking up big time. Well, it still is. At the press conference, Sony Chief Financial Officer Nobuyuki Oneda blamed the obvious: The battery recall and the PS3 delay. Continuing, he stated:

We would have been on track with the midterm plan, or more than that. But the game segment is weak and is the major challenge for us now.
Chin up, Sony. With the console launch just around the corner, it can only get better! Right? Right?!

The story is too old to be commented.

Who would have guessed? I can see why with their overly expensive 3D0. They should call 3D0 and ask them what it is like having the most expensive console on the market. OH WAIT they can't call them because they are gone forever. They should just market the PS3 as an all in one grill station dubbed The Ken kataguri Smokehouse Grill, you can see the burgers cooking with its see through lid.

where did Panasonic go?

Deceased3860d ago

Didn't go anywhere that I know of. The 3DO was co-developed by goldstar, panasonic, and guess who? EA LOL Now I hope square enix comes out with their own console, I might just buy it.

I got a free tatoo on my leg. I had my laptop on my lap until it got extremely hot, later that night I took off my pants and I had a burn mark that read "SONY" LOL I will never be the same again. Hey sony can I have all those recalled batteries? I would like to use them to light fires in my fireplace, or maybe light my cigarette with.

Game segment is weak? Yeah only Sony's segment probably. Selling millions of PS2's to people that don't buy games for it. STRANGE HUH?

The PS2's are sold because the old ones break down. For the current game library of ppl. They don't buy new games... And many laggards buying the old gen machine. And then spend very few bucks on games because they are not big spenders, unlike the ppl that buy a 360

That's why the 360 had an attach rate of 4.5 games per console sold @ launch?

THat's why the 360 has an attach rate of 5.1 games per console right now?

Uhm that's actually sounding like a very strong game segment to me there :)

Lol.. you pulled those numbers out of your rear attachment?.. show me the link genius.

"They don't buy new games... And many laggards buying the old gen machine, and then spend very few bucks on games because they are not big spenders, unlike the ppl that buy a 360".

hahahahaha, hohohohoh, hehehehehe, lololololo

you would make a great member of parliment in the UK!!

its amazing how you know this information!! So all these ps2`s selling more than the 360, its just because customers are replacing faulty units?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. You need to get a life, and someone needs to give you a really good kicking! ive never known anyone EVER to talk as much bullsh!t as you PERIOD, this also includes the many developers i work for.....and THATS saying something!!!!!!

TheMART3859d ago

12 volt you're so uninformed. As Antan is. I see you're reacting on anything I post. You work for developers? whohahoahaha yeah developping paperclips I bet.

"yeah developping paperclips I bet".

HEHE, well done! i found that mildly amusing. Fortunaltey i do work for many developers across teh globe..................and not in a bank.

"So all these ps2`s selling more than the 360, its just because customers are replacing faulty units??"

I couldnt see the link you posted for this comment? which was my whole point, did i mention attatched rates anywhere? bye bye

TheMART3859d ago

THe links were for 12volt. I was just saying you're as uninformed as him.

Ok, specially a link for you then:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

"The earliest drives suffered from a constantly misaligning laser lens but later defects were the result of a shift in voltage to the laser itself. The first problem was relatively easy to remedy, but it required opening the machine's casing and tweaking a cog that controlled the lens' distance from the discs it was supposed to read, thus voiding the warranty. This usually didn't matter, as in most cases the warranty already had expired by the time such problems began to appear. The second fix involved the use of an oscillator. As time went on, more and more drives began breaking down and a class action lawsuit was filed against Sony."

And in my surrounding I know many, many peoples PS2 are collecting dust or they bought a new one at the low price now because they think it's sad all their games are in the closet doing nothing.

So yeah. Many are in their 2nd or 3rd PS2 because of the sh!tty DVD drive

So what do you do for developers? Put the discs in the covers in the factory? Come on. You don't earn credits for saying you work for developers. You don't have extra knowledge I find in your posts.

And ofcourse the PS2 sells at 100 dollars. Laggards buy them. Those never buy high edge new hardware. They won't buy a PS3 also. Man the PS2 will even outsell the PS3... SO it's a mix of replacing and laggards that buy anything that's 100 dollars. Even if the thing won't be used almost
