HEY.....ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!
PS3 production pricing at this point has been laid out to be anywhere from $850 - $956 per unit, meaning there will be a loss on each machine of approx $250 - $350 per console sold. If one million consoles sell in the first day of availability Sony will have wiped their entire fiscal gain for all of 2005 in under 24 hours.
Bye Bye Sony. If they price the PS3 anywhere near $900 Dollars I always said that would be the start of a slow death for them.
PS3 is gonna be 399$ I'm sure of that.
i want m$ to buy sony and nintendo so i can have all the best games under one console.
dam right man
We'll see won't we. But if it's $700 what are you going to do?
more likely... Google to buy out MS before 2014
I KNOW you just posted this to try and get under my skin THWIP.
Not even going to start ranting about their alledged Bill of materials guess.
Did it work?
Then you'll be paying rediculous prices because there's no competition.
Everytime I see that MGS4 snake picture I can't help but think of him as a retired porn star.
I hope they give him a full beard in the finale build of the game.
or non at all, I think Hideo will change it, it seems no one is really happy about it, and he has mentioned changing it if there's a lot of resistance.
Nobody likes Sony games.
I doubt your claim. It seems like a vocal minority isn't happy withit. It looks fine.
Well the other day I was just thinking what it would be like if there was only one console, and I think it would work if it was modeled after PC gaming, with devs competing with each other and hardware competition being in the background (Sony and MS could make the same exact product that runs the same games) or whatever, but then I realised that PC gaming has been dying for a while, but my PC gaming friend took a lot of offense to it and swung a bat at me and I got in one little fight and my mom got scared and said "you're moving with your aunte and uncle in Bel-Air"
I whistled for a cab and when it came near the
licensplate said "Fresh" wit a dice in the mirror
if anything I could say that this cab was rare
but I thought man forget it, yo home to Bel-Air
I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
and I yelled to the cabby "Yo, home smell you later"
looked at my kingdom I was finally there
to sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-Air,
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
I do hope such a buyout would amount to too high a market share, resulting in the competition authorities getting involved and preventing it. Microsoft has had it's hands slapped by the European Commission and ECJ/CFI before.
THIS WOULD BE TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM ANY ANTI-TRUST/MONOPOLY ISSUES 'MS' HAS HAD IN THE PAST. IF A BUYOUT OCCURRED, IT'S NOT LIKE IT WOULD BE SOME HOSTILE TAKEOVER; IF 'SONY' AND 'MS' AGREED TO THE TERMS, THERE'S NOT A THING ANYONE COULD DO TO 'MS'.
BUYOUTS AND MERGERS HAPPEN EVERY DAY........THIS WOULD JUST BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST IN HISTORY.
They'd open themselves up for abuse of dominant position attacks though.
ATTACKS ARE ONE THING........LEGAL ACTION IS QUITE ANOTHER. 'MS' IS "THICK-SKINNED" WHEN IT COMES TO "ATTACKS".
Microsoft defeated the United States Supreme Court itself. They're above the law.
QUICK....SOMEBODY 'PS' BILL'S HEAD ONTO THIS.
I forget the exact case, but they were fined by the European Commission for not letting others access the information needed for third party additions. It was a heavy fine, though hardly one that Microsoft couldn't afford.
LOL. I laughed for five minutes after seeing that. Someone really needs to manip that.
MS needs to BUY Steven Seagal... That way They can kick the competitions ass... unless Sony and Nintendo buy Chuck Norris and Mr.T... then it would be the console wars all over again...
