    Sony may be just above junk status, but I don't have high hopes for this thread.

    Prove me wrong, GBAtemp.

    Ready your dicks gents, let the circlejerk begin!

    EDIT: Preemptively putting this in Golden Threads since it's destined for non-greatness and I'll be checking frequently for good Shit GBAtemp Says fodder.

    *sees negative Sony thread*

    I think: "This shit must have been posted by that dickbag douchebag soulx right? I hope it's not because that would mean he really has no life and needs to post Sony failures to make his life feel less of a pathetic mess than it actually is"

    J/K right? ;)

    Sorry for bringing it up but I want to get this over with before someone gets emotionally scarred from all the thread spice...
    D'aw man, why you soulx? Sure the story may be legit news and everything but what is this, you know the consequences, and why the USN of all places?!

    Anyway I don't know what Sony should do at this point. Honestly I think they will have to close some of their divisions next year to cut down their losses, starting with TV's.

    Heh, so Nintendo is doomed, but Nintendo hasn't reached this point. What does that make Sony?

    lets try to make it work!

    maybe sony is having some bad karma for what it has done in the past. there is always hope but they have to change their thinking. I have 2 examples in mind:
    1.) Google: they said youtube and their homepage is not for earning money but pleasing the ppl. Once they do that, money will roll in from different sources.
    2.) Toby: Weird but this guy does it bcz he likes it and in the process earns a hefty dough i believe

    so sony, be more considerate and investors will definitely look up to you.

    I do believe that investors won't care about this BB grade, and go by the name and reputation instead. Sure it may not have gone so well for a while, but I'm sure sony will kick back soon enough. It's sony for fucks sake. they won't go under yet for a great while.

    Excuse my french, but

    FUCK MOODY'S!
    Those bunch of speculators must have put a lot of money on the possibility of Sony going down :/
    (not a true fanboy, don't own a console of them, but do have a tv)

    (snip)
    Yea, that was a bit of a odd comparison...

    Damn man! Don't even think about that!

    Sony have been a real competitor for Nintendo and gaming corporations.
    The more competitors, better for us.

    I don't think Sony would ever sell their gaming division for Nintendo.

    A statement like that is a serious claim and is definitely not an opinion.

    Nintendo doesn't need any part of their gaming division. They don't need any of their games either.
