And you won't even reach the point of relevance in life. Keep quite unless you got something worthwhile to say. Uncivilized people like you plague this site with immense stupidity.

I don't like taking bubbles from my fellow gamers but you left me no choice.

I got a Sony Bravia 52" for Christmas, so I tried to help them!

It's an extremely nice LCD and I couldn't be happier with it.

It's not the products, it's the economy. People are just holding onto their wallets until things settle down.

This is pretty much par for the course in this economical climate for pratically every company. How is this news relevant to the gaming community? Can we even name 5 companys worldwide that is meeting or surpassing sales target right now, without drastically reducing the price or in some cases taking a loss on the sales?

Edit @above I would love to get my hands on a Bravia set but my 56" Samsung DLP is still kicking major ass right now and I can't bear to part with it yet. Dlps are the best for gaming and sports!
