Someone may have already posted this. In fact, I'm pretty sure someone will have, as I normally lag behind people in terms of gaming news. (Notice the pun there? I know, horrible.)

However, just for the people who haven't seen it, I noticed this:

http://www.videogamer.com/news/05-01-2009-10282.html

Now, for those who don't want to link away and read an entire article, I'll cut it down for you:


Sony may well be cutting down on certain divisions, possibly including it's video gaming department.

Although nothing is confirmed, and to be honest, I'm sure it probably won't happen, it's interesting to think that a major company as big as Sony is obviously affected by the global financial crisis, so will they cut their losses?

The other thing i picked up from the article is that apparently the PS3 is behind the Xbox 360 and the Wii in terms of sales, which I was not particularly surprised at.

One thing I really noticed from working at my local Game store over Christmas, was that no one was buying Playstation 3s. Everyone wanted a Wii, and anyone that was left wanted a 360. Is this due to everyone needing a replacement after a RROD? Or was it the price tag? I did definitely notice a huge amount of Arcade console sales, suggesting the lowered price tag was definitely an issue.

Anyone seriously think Sony will pull the plug on the PS3? Or is this just more panic journalism relating to the global crisis we face?
