Sessler's Soapbox: Sony's Financial Troubles

G4TV- It came out this week that Sony is not doing too well financially. After the news dropped that the company was posting a multi-million dollar loss for the year, a lot of journalists and analysts decided to discuss what they think might be a better path for Sony to follow. Enter the Sess. On this week's Soapbox, Adam will explain how he has seen Sony change over the years and why he thinks they still have a bright future.

Basically he is saying PS1 and PS2 were good, PS3 had a lot going for it, but a lot going against it.

I like Sessler and his take on things, I truly think Sony is getting more consumer minded with the PS4. Sony won previous generations not on power, but on affordability and games. While having the most powerful console is nice for people to beat their chests and brag, it does little when you think about how most 3rd party developers cant and don't take advantage of it.

So for all the "Future proofing" the PS3 supposedly had, Sony will put out a new console just like the other companies and at around the same time.

yeah, i agree. Sessler makes some salient points here and it's difficult to disagree with him. the only thing i would say is that the Japanese culture and the American culture is completely different and what is described as 'arrogant' by the media (it gets more hits) is actually 'lethargy'. still counter-productive but not as selfish

He hit the nail on the head. Sony has been becoming much more consumer minded in terms of new products. I have faith in Kaz and he know PlayStation is critical to Sony's success.

Sony delivers great products but their pricing, marketing and competitive strategy clearly were below par. The PS4 will answer a lot of questions about Sony's future.
