Bad day for Sony

Today is turning out to be a bad day for Sony…

First  Bloomberg is reporting that Sony will make the largest loss of their history for the fiscal year ending the 31st of March ($630 million), the games division alone is expected to lose $1 Billion which is huge….

Next comes the news that Sony only managed to sell 100 000 PS3’s in the US in April which is a long way behind all the competition and is a 30k drop from March. This can be put down simply to lack of software. Not a single PS3 exclusive was released in April or May if I remember correctly…

They are still to expensive as well, however that is the only good news being released for Sony fans today. Everyone is predicting a $100 drop towards the end of the year which should bring the PS3 into the R5000 – R5500 bracket. Still to expensive in my mind but closer to what the normal high end gamer could afford.

Add that to MGS being delayed and Namco pulling titles and things start to look very bad for Sony…
