Sony Corporation is considering shutting down some of its company premises in Japan because of the continuing power shortages and the governments new energy saving targets for manufacturers.
They have manufacturers in China as well as America don't they? I wonder how much this will impact overall PS3 production for the demand.
PS3 survived a 1 shipping ban in Europe, and Japan has enough to do without the ps3, so this wont affect too many people negativity.
Peoples jobs, fanboys, etc... will be affected.
so roughly 4000 jobs put on hold for 2 weeks if this is just a local thing. It shouldn't matter too much, Sony is just using its resources to help Japan, a whole company is taken off the grid to ease the load and the workers may get partial compensation if they help the relief effort.
And will this effect PSP 2 development?
It sucks that a bunch of bad stuff keeps happening over there, I'd totally understand if they had to do this.
OH I THOUGHT IT WAS PSN phew nearly had a heart attack
Lmao heres a Bubble for this guy! the Heart attack thing was funny.
me too whew!
The earthquake and tsunami in Japan are also effecting jobs in the U.S.. http://www.businessinsider.... The Japanese economy is taking a major hit.
There is a few more huge manufacturers that are getting it too. With the PS3 now being the console under the heaviest demand Sony will probably have to change business plans for future production, if nothing changes.
Yea, thats true, but I believe the workers are still going to get paid, at least that is what I last heard, like a week or two ago, that might have changed. So it honestly doesn't affect it as much. There is a huge surplus of vehicles in the U.S anyhow. Buy American parts and products
Its a shame on how much of a big impact the earthquake has done to Japan, even in places that are far away from where the earthquake hit the most and where the tsunami stuck. Real shame :(
Will they turn off PSN for two weeks two? Yikes!
