The Sony Vaio PC is Dead (5 Lines SNE Won’t Get Rid Of): Playstation 4

Sony-vaio-playstation-4While no one lines up to buy the latest Sony Vaio, there were lineups for the Playstation 4, the company’s next-generation video game console. The company ended up selling more than one million PS4s in the first 24 hours of availability and sales have remained strong. Better yet, unlike the PS3 experience, Sony is already close to breaking even on Playstation 4 hardware.

That bodes well for future profitability of the gaming platform.

When you add in the value of the Playstation 4 in generating games sales (which Sony gets a cut of), the investment in the Playstation Now game streaming network, the PS4’s role in bolstering the Playstation Vita handheld game system and the foothold in the living room the video game console represents for Sony, I can’t see any reason for Sony to get rid of the Playstation 4.
