Sony hopes its new PlayStation Portable will boost sales
Electronics giant Sony has reported a fall in profits, in contrast to strong gains seen by Matsushita and Canon.
Sony, which blamed a fall in sales of televisions and portable audio players, saw half-year pre-tax profits fall 12.5% to 69.9bn yen ($659m; £359m).

I really dont think $659m is a chip off sonys back. The PSP is bound to boom. Im already seeing them on the streets and as well in walmart and ebgames. You can call EB and they tell you that all the orders are GONE! Every single one of them.

Yea. to sony $659m isnt a thing. They are huge man! Im sure they have seen 10 times as much as that before. PSP will definitely bringin them back out. And putting DS away for sure.

No doubt that they will make the money back. Its a matter of if it will drop again when the PS3 comes out.

Lol yeah, If Sony decideds to release the PS3 at $700 they will take another fall.. That won't be right since they have to make the money back on the PSP

But then think about xbox?! They are going to try to beat out PS3 so you know that if Sonys is gonna be $700 dollars xbox's is going to be at least $800.

Well then if Microsoft decides to do that then they will take a fall , but its fricken Microsoft man they are soo rich that money is like pocket change to em

Yea but still they could take a big enough fall to put them back pretty far. I think Microsoft should either start up something different or stick to computers.. After all they have sonys VAIO computers beat :cool:

Lol.. They already have VAIO beaten out.. There is no need to even compete with sony computers. I wanna see what Microsoft has in mind for there new VGC
