Blah - Sony spends that type of Money on toilet paper alone.

No really they do - Sony has corporate offices in the following loaction:

Tokyo, Japan
Atsugi, Japan
New York, New York
San Diego, California
San Jose, California
Culver City, California

Which employ an estimated 10,000 people each.

6 x 10,000 = 60,000

I know the amount of toilet paper they use depends on how much Taco Bell the eat but I think it safe to say that allot of paper is used in one month.

It's weird, right? There's no top 5 list, no passive-aggresive flamebait disguised as a question, not even a solution to a non-issue made by someone who has no clue about programming at all, in this article. Further more, there's no copy-pasted hypetrain or fanboy hate speech to be found anywhere in the text. This is not game journalism at all! We need to feed the trolls!
