I know in a PR sense it would be a sign of weakness, but why not after the holidays in a business sense, cut the ps3 and vita production, since each of those units they lose money on ? Hence cutting their losses.
They can still release free games on Sony network and sell "blockbusters" like Call of Duty version 33 lol in 2013 but simply cut their loss and hype ps4 like Nintendo hyped WiiU since what, 2010 ? I mean, releasing a smaller but more expensive than original ps3 seems crazy. It's like Sega old management is there "Hey in Sega Saturn magazine say we will cancel Saturn soon because we are making the dc, hype it up in this Saturn magazine for 20 more issues, oh, and run a article about what to get a 32x or Saturn, I'm sure it won't confuse or hardcore fanbase" lol.
They have a PSP and Vita in a Nintendo, Apple and Android portable market anyway, it seems bad business to keep dumping in something that won't sell. (Game Gear, 32x, Sega CD, Saturn until they said he let's cancel early).
As it's obvious to people they will have a meh 2012 holiday and sluggish 2013 anyway, why not cut your losses and just praise the ps4 in hype like sega did with dc during 1998 or Sony did with PS2 in 2001 or wiiu has done for 2 years ?
Or is it just easier an overall business move to simply fire a satellite radio division (indeed we both know Sony has many division Sega was small fries compared to this powerhouse Sony corp) then dump those assets, which might not last long, into their gaming division to save face and keep afloat until ps4 ?
What do you think ?
Also I know you vs Mr Sega and OP vs everyday seem to have a history, I don't want to be drug in it (not saying you or anyone tried to).
