Sony Posts $390M Loss as Bravia TV and PlayStation Sales Slump

100°
287w ago - According to Bloomberg, today Sony Corporation has reported a second straight quarterly loss as the stronger yen pushed the company further behind Samsung Electronics Company in television sales, and the global recession drove down demand for videogame machines.

The net loss was 37.1 billion yen ($390 million) in the quarter ended June 30, compared with profit of 35 billion yen a year earlier.

To quote: The result beat estimates after Chief Executive Officer Howard Stringer cut jobs and shut factories to revive a company that's lost its lead to Samsung in TVs, Nintendo Co. in game players and Apple Inc. in portable media players.

Pressure is building for Stringer to prove he can increase Sony's sales, not just reduce expenses, by slashing jobs and suppliers, according to investors such as Yasuhiko Hirakawa.

"Cost cutting and reshuffling of management may help mend unprofitable businesses but they won't make Sony competitive against Samsung and other rivals," said Hirakawa, a Tokyo-based fund manager at DIAM Co., which oversees $80 billion in assets.

"The brand is still highly regarded but that won't last forever."

It's rumored the date will be officially announced at GamesCom Cologne during Sony's August 18th press conference.

Videos: Ratchet & Clank Comic-Con Recap for PlayStation 3

50°
287w ago - Insomniac Games Community Relations Manager James Stevenson has outlined a recap of Comic-Con 2009 Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time footage today.

To quote: We led off with some exclusive videos that those of you playing at home won't be able to see until the final game releases, one involving Captain Qwark, and the other an unlockable video about the Agorian Warriors.

Allgeier and company then discussed the story, and its theme of "throwing caution to the wind," especially relating to the effect of Ratchet being with an older Lombax for the first time. One of the early highlights involved a verbal spar between Taylor and Shimerman, using the voices of Ratchet and Dr. Nefarious, respectively, as they sat together on stage talk about Nefarious's temperament issues.





Discussion then turned to Clank and his whereabouts after being kidnapped at the end of Tools of Destruction. Bernal revealed that Clank is being held at the center of the universe (give or take fifty feet), in a secret facility known as the Great Clock. Clank gains new time abilities and has some brand new indie-inspired time gameplay.

Next came a topic that is a series standby: weapons. The beginning of the discussion centered on the Weapons Contest...
