Sounds like someone at Sony is deserving of a very big gold star for their turn around.

All out of the gold stars... would you mind a smiley face or perhaps this duck? Look at the duck! *Quack* No. You can't have the duck! It's mine. You have the smiley face.

Well deserved, indeed.

Microsoft posts an Operating Income of $7.12 billion and Microsoft is the dying consumer brand? Right
Oh and 5 billion in profit too...

Dannehkins2820d ago

Well when you are suffering from a poor exchange rate from yen to dollar, yen to pound and yen to euro and you manage to turn it around so quickly, that's pretty darn good.

BUT OF COURSE, you seem to be rather upset by this article. Shame really, I thought the point of this article was pretty obvious but it seems to have flew over your head judging by your comment.

You poor poor person :(

In this site we compare games consoles and their performance, PS3 vs. 360.

MS and Sony are big corporations and gaming is only divisions, we should only compare the performance of them specifically. Nintendo may be the only company with gaming as its main division.

And MS is dying, there was no completion for it for many years, but now it's difficult for them to catch up to Google and apple in the new technology era. And they will face a big and real threat to windows when Google release their PC OS.

MS also runs a Monopoly, you know? it should be profiting all the time...

with more assets and employs more people. They are a japanese company so its hurting them due to the yen. They will bounce back easily.

GTmonster2820d ago

Sony's total company take for the three months ending 30th September was $20.9 billion. That breaks down into Consumer, Professional & Devices ($10.7 billion), Networked Products and Services ($4.4 billion), Financial Services ($2.7 billion), Sony Pictures ($1.7 billion) and Sony Music ($1.3 billion).

Vs microsoft 16.2billion.

feelintheflow2819d ago

Microsoft 5+ billion in us dollars, there are 1000 million in billion. This isn't even close dude. Good for sony but to try and compare there net profit to Microsofts is laughable.

Silly gameAr2820d ago

lol. Don't worry. I'm sure MS and Windows 7 isn't going anywhere. You don't have too post numbers from your favorite billion dollar company to make yourself feel better.

In terms of market share, Microsoft is falling behind other companies. Just because their other divisions (i.e., Windows) is able to pull a hefty profit doesn't mean their other division are doing okay. I'm sick of these "Well look at all the moneez" replies to the CNN article two days ago.

Every company has its struggles, and Sony is no different either as this article clearly illustrates.

You know, it wasn't who wrote that 'Microsoft is a dying consumer brand' article. It was And it wasn't crazy fanboys who downgraded Microsoft in the stock Market. It was Wall Street.

Gaming will be too boring without Sony....Nin and MS.
