If the PS3 tanks, Sony Computer Entertainment is in limbo not Sony Corporation. Not everything you read on the Internet is true bud, sometimes you actually have to think a little bit. I work at a car dealership and if one department fails, the others will pick up the losses. If it continues to lose money, the department can be liquidated to preserve the business. Make sense?
I'm not saying the PS3 isn't a gamble, but at the same time wasn't the original Playstation and the Xbox a shot in the dark as well?
For a large company like Sony, if they even thought it would cause such a financial burden they couldnt recover from, they would have stopped production by now and wrote the losses off already. Besides, the profits from the PS2 are still a huge income, slowly dimishing, but not dead.
Yeah, and now that we have the PS3 three months later, it's even crappier and selling worse than expected.
