3 Reasons Why Apple Won't Buy Sony

Shares of Sony (NYSE: SNE) closed higher in Japan today, after rumors surfaced of an Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL) takeover.

Don't wait up for that Apple Bravia television or Mac PS3 console, though. This deal isn't going to happen. It's just another case of analysts dreaming out loud after Apple's coy plans for deploying its enviable $51 billion war chest.

Let's go over a few reasons why this just isn't going to happen.

I think they would buy EA instead.

Organization XII2968d ago

It could be EA, thats what the rumors are saying, but sony is quite impossible..

I think they aren't going to buy sony because right now i don't think sony is profitable enough for apple. they are in a lot of debt.

Actually, Greenring is right this time. Sony has a debt hole of 40.8 billion dollars. It isn't just playstation, you know?

I hope they buy Microsoft and just stop selling Windows... imagine the backlash.

I'm not anti-windows I just hate how much less stable it is.

and win 7 in incredibly stable, It's not hard to make a good OS for apple, no one cares enough to hack it and all the software for macs could probably fit under my bed. On topic it will never happen, Sony is too big.

Because Sony is NOt for Sale!! :)

jjank112968d ago

I heard that Apple is going to buy the US government

writersblock2968d ago

Illuminati own the goverment, and they wont sell

GigaGaia2968d ago

You only need one reason: It's impossible. Even Apple can't take over Sony.

PS360fanboy2967d ago

Oh yes they can...most valuable tech brand in the world, worth 52 billion, more than enough to cover sony's 40.8 billion debt...
