    News - Sony on the road to recovery?

    You wouldn't think that losing £123 million was a good thing, however for Sony this is a big turnaround.

    Apart from making TV, VAIO, PS3, Sony needs to stop doing anything else.

    Sony has many areas it is involved in,imaging being one of them in the consumer,research and commerical areas. Their sensors are used in loads of devices.

    It is TVs which have lost them a lot of money.

    They need to really focus now if they're to prosper. Haven't they only made a profit because they sold off one of their past acquisitions? A chemical company or something?

    In gaming, they're losing their grip. The exclusive titles they've once had have now gone multi-platform, and apart from Gran Turismo (which wasn't stellar) and Wipeout which is now defunct, they're pretty much sitting ducks.

    I have a Vita, and although the hardware is excellent, the selection of new games on the platform is dire. Stupid things like the proprietary vita-only memory cards doesn't help. There's an extensive psp library to download from ps store but ports of old games aren't going to save this handheld which is supposedly their flagship. And it's not as if Nintendo are their number one threat, more and more people are jumping onto the tablet and mobile phone for casual gaming so they severely need to sort themselves out. 'Playstation' was once a household name but their recent performance has hit them hard.

    Sony unlike Nokia will bounce back to their former glory.

    Besides the tablets I have no gripes with any of the hardware sony produces. The hardware lasts and is well designed with decent quality components. My ps3 (the very first phat model that plays ps2 games) is still going strong after more than five years of daily usage. I have a vita also and although still waiting for some quality titles it's still a fabulous piece of kit and by the end of the first quarter next year there will be plenty of games available.
    Televisions made by sony imo have the most realistic picture compared to samsung,lg,toshiba etc, but the price comparison pushes customers towards samsung tvs. Once sony have looked at their pricing model they'll be outselling samsung. However, sony should forget about making tablets so far all their offerings have been apalling.
