I don't see why it would be Sony though, has as much chance has M$ really. Marketshare at Sony has taken a tumble as we all know, but it's not because of the gaming division.

In fact, Sony's gaming division is the strongest in the company so why on earth would they "bow out" of the gaming world...to "save themslves" from being able to support making cameras in the future?? It's ridiculous.

Just so happens the guy making this "prediction" works for cloud based gaming, just making a shock prediction to make people think that cloud gaming is the future for his own benefit.

While cloud gaming may be something of the future, predicting that one of the 3 major console makers is bowing out from consoles at this E3 is beyond comical.
At this point it wouldnt be M$ or Nintendo, period. Sony's gaming division is the strongest within the company true, but if they were losing out per console sold before they dropped the slim what does that tell you. Taking into consideration the point you made in your post.

None of the big 3 are dropping out anytime soon, maybe 15 years from now maybe.

Microsoft has all the momentum in the world with their gaming division.. I guarantee neither one will bow out, just saying if it would be either one, I'd have to say Sony. Argument is moot anyway, because we both know neither one will be going anywhere anytime soon.
I hate to harp on sales but both systems have sold the same to this date. I don't see how one has more momentum than the other besides the fact we live in the country that 360 sells the most which is the reason why you have that perception. From a global standpoint it's the same.

I personally don't care about it but the fact still remains that Sony has sold the same amount in one less year, I think this perception about 360's momentum is only because we live in America my dude.

That doesn't tell me anything besides the fact the console was $600 at launch, last gen when PS2 was out most of the sales came came 5-6 years into the life cycle. Even when 360 & PS3 was out it was selling at it's peak because of price.

Companies have always made their money off software sales and accessories & DLC not consoles. Why do you think M$ charges so much for HDD's and the Vita charges $100 for a 32GB SD card.

Why do you think Sega went out of business? Because all their software was burnable.

At this point, this rumor is comical nothing more.

Im not speaking on the rumor that one might bow out, we all know that isnt going to happen. Im just saying sony hasnt been that successful lately.

In the gaming division no, in other divisions yes. Which is more proof as to why they wouldn't get rid of the gaming division.

and those failures will drag down the entire company even the most profit making sectors. kind of like sega, what truely k!lled the wasn't the pirating but investing ridiculous amounts of money into projects such as shenmue hoping for a quick return.

more powerful of course im hoping and betting on it, innovative no. sony hasnt been innovative since the ps1, every move they have been making was to stay in competition with moves made by someone else. (motion control, netflix, premium subscriptions etc) its just like sony is just following the trends set by nintendo and microsoft.

sony did motion control before both nintendo and microsoft

mumbles got banned cause he purposely made a bunch of threads with the intent of getting banned...unless hurting ur feelings becomes a bannable offense, i dont see why i'd get banned

If anything the bleeding sectors get cut, you don't sacrifice the cash cow to save what's dying. You cut costs with dying divisions, go with profit and rebuild other sectors from there.

And yes Sega died because of piracy. The very game you mention couldn't get quick return because it was getting ripped by the masses.

I want to look this from a True Gamers angle, just hear me out. Sony and Microsoft arent going anywhere because the fallout would be catastrophic. Lets talk about Nintendo, since I've been coming in here mothafu*kas hardly ever mention the Wii. You know why? Cause True Gamers like everybody in here dont even consider it a next gen console. We start f!ghts in this bi*ch arguing over pointless views about Sony vs Microsoft. Aint none of us really checking for the Wii, I have not seen a thread about mothafu*kas who cant wait for the release date of any Wii games. Just today there was a thread about Ghost Recon getting delayed, because that game matters to True Gamers.

From a True Gamers view TO ME, Nintendo has already bowed out! The Wii sold the most, cant argue with that. Just because it sold the most dont mean its the best. Nintendo bowed out to True Gamers when they targeted none gamers. Nintendo was like "fu*k true gamers lets sell our sh*t to soccer moms and librarians and sh*t" Just look at the games that have come out on the Wii, for every good Mario game theirs 15 bad ones and another 20 that shouldnt have been thought of. Some of these games the developers at Nintendo just gave the fu*k up. They knew soccer moms and 6 year olds dont know the difference between a average game and a sh*tty game. When I read gaming mags I look at the ratings of Wii games I see 4's and 5's. Nintendo did this. When game drops on all consoles pay attention to what's said about the one on the Wii.

Now I have to give credit were credit is due Nobodies beating Nintendo when it comes to hand helds.
but isn't nintendo coming out with a more advanced console than the wii sometime soon?

Microsofts freestyle pro 1998
The Freestyle Pro, released in 1998, was a rather novel gamepad, as the up-down-left-right directions in analogue mode were controlled by the movement of the controller, more precisely by the absolute pitch and roll position of the pad.


or the Sega Activator that dropped in 1993

According to our sources, Apple will be premiering a new tablet based console at this year's E3. It will feature it's own Marketplace, a Streaming TV/Movie service, and Online Gaming sponsored by influential publishers such as EA, Epic, and Naughty Dog. We'll keep you posted as this story continues to progress.

it would matter it shenmue was pirated or not, it would take every dc console owner to buy that game retail atleast 3 times for sega to turn profit from that, hell half of the dc owners didnt have it, and like you said alot of them bootlegged it.

sony hasnt cut any bleeding sectors, they just continue to bleed. i never said sacrificing the cash cow. If a business goes under, regardless if they have a product generating cash flow if they have 40 other products/projects bleeding them dry.
