It's funny they have to shut down a tv facility.
Sony should have stuck with tvs,cameras,walkmans and such and kept out of console gaming period.
Now look at the mess they're falling into.
Serves em right!
Fable 2........Game of the year,
only on the 360(X Play gaming show).

Just think of all the viewers watching this show,and will now buy a 360 accordingly.

UPDATE:

Since the 360 price cut to $199,
I've been selling 8 360s to 1.....hehe ps3 on average at my Game Stop store.
I just thought the Sony swine in here would be happy to hear this.

you work at Game Stop!

lol

Bon, So much for Empathy, Hopefully one day you will find it, Or at least look it up in the Dictionary.

A lot of people will be put out of work, even some of them are possibly 360 Owners...

This is a Recession, no doubt about it , and unfortunately , as always, we , the people suffer.

I hope you lose your job for being an asshole.
Once again, placing a console war over something as serious as this.

F*cking jerkoff. My coworker's friend works at Gamestop. prefers the 360 but doesn't get on like that.

BananaSlug3599d ago

i wonder what services Bon offers for those excellent sales

=)

with that attitude I don't think anybody would let you work in an environment that requires interaction with clients.

that video game store you work for, is located in your little fantasy world that is right on your mind?

Scaling back is not because of bad business, but because of the falling Yen. Sony is doing just fine, but everyone is aff3ected by this recession.

mynd3599d ago (Edited 3599d ago )

Parts of Sony are doing just fine.
Not the parts your interested in though.
I do feel sorry that the Electronics department, while underperforming it at least makes a profit, it is now bearing the brunt of Crazy Kens complete incompetency. Fire him. Oh wait. they did.
3 billion in 2 years. 3 billion dollars + 300 million this year so far.

Compare that 300 million loss to the 520 million profit the electronic's department has made.

I don't know how, but Sony need to get the costs of the PS3 under control.

LoveWaffles3599d ago

I know 3 people who work at this plant

I feel for them
