Do you guys perceive how well MS or Sony are doing based on the perceived success of the consoles? Or do you guys separate how well the company's are doing outside of these ventures.
There is perception that Microsoft is doing really poorly and moving in a bad direction and is going to fail while Sony is doing all things right and is coming out on the opposite end. But if you look at the companies as a whole, this couldn't be further from the truth. Sony is doing TERRIBLE financially (I say terrible) while Microsoft is still making money hand over fist. If you look at their stock prices in the last 10-years, Sony was as high as 46 dollars per share in 06, to 16 dollars now, while Microsoft has gone from 20ish dollars, to 40ish dollars now.
While I don't have either of the new consoles at this point, I just thought I'd comment to what I've been seeing and wanted to ask about the general perception of the companies.
