I hope Sony isn't going anywhere I enjoy their games way too much, plus it's their biggest revenue isn't it? Competition is good and drive each other forward.
Totes, that’s why they should get rid of their movie studios and go all in with video game entertainment studios. It’s already on route to exceed their profits

Unless Sony embrace the gamepass subscription model, I can see this being the last generation for Sony. Maybe the next generation will be Xbox vs Amaozonstation 6. I know that sounds like trolling but I’m definitely getting Blockbuster vibes from Sony.
Yup! Agreed. And with Apple, Amazon and Google throwing their hats in the ring, Sony is going to have to do something. The worst thing about being stuck in the past is you get left behind. Plus, they havent really taken the steps to even compete in cLoud game streaming or subscription services. Sony could potentially be bled out this gen by trying to play catch up. Sounds kinda nuts but you can see the start of it right now.

Improving isn't the same as changing the direction the market is heading.
The direction has changed -- quite a bit. Thats what Sony fans arent getting (not you specificaly, VaL) People are still thinking next gen is going to be about Console sales and pure game sales. Xcloud and GP changed that narrative substantially. And Xbox is front man on both points throughout all players.

Sony had the exclusives last gen. Next gen, thats no longer the case anymore. They'll have some really stiff competition. XGS has 23 fricken studios!! Thats insane! And there's more on the way. Sony wont dominate like they did this gen. I cant see it.

So you think AAA games are going to change the business model?
Technology is changing the business model. Games that begin AAA production today will be ready for an entirely different landscape. Playstation will be fine this gen. When this gen is over, I believe Microsoft will have a lot more users in their ecosystem due to PC and cloud. Gaming is growing a fast pace yet console market is stagnant. Microsoft is in a good position for the next console cycle, to expand on PC and lead in cloud.

These people on Twitter have lost their mind. They really think MS needs Sony to make that money back.
The thing that gets me is how small 7.5 billion is when you put it in perspective to MS’s worth. Like do these people fail to realize that 7.5 billion is a drop in the bucket to MS?
Like MS could write off that 7.5 billion as a loss and it would be a blip on their financials.

At some point, Cloud gaming will work through browsers. Not today. It would be a bad experience right now. Eventually though, there's a lot of work going on to take advantage of lower latency internet in the future. Wherever you have access to a browser, you'll be able to play games. Same will go for Sony at some point. It will be good enough for the majority of the market like streaming lower quality 4K is good enough compared to higher quality physical media is today.

Pretty much. This is a slow death for Sony. People who can see it knows it is coming. Those who are still stuck in their old fashion ways will be in a shock when thing are changing around him.
It could be...and this is why. So looking at this graph, who is positioning themselves for a bigger piece of this pie in the coming years, as other well-funded competitors entering the market?
