  1. They would need to get out of console games first before doing this for it to work they’ll run out of money

  2. This won’t work. Sony is being run horribly the studios are being killed and Sony is trying to waste billions on Paramount.

    1. The devs need to unionize to stop this behavior! The corporations are getting out of hand it shows they have the money. I wish the consumers would wake up finally and not support these companies like Sony or Microsoft anymore.

  3. This is not the move and it’s a huge turn on the PlayStation audience. The ponies need to finally wake up! Xbots are somewhat aware but the ponies are just in denial. This is the end of console gaming as we know it.
