Indeed. I have always found it at least an order of magnitude easier to make something than sell something. Might be different with salesmen though.

As long as they keep making Playstations and hi-end walkmans I'm happy.

Playstation network subscriptions are a very steady source of income for Sony, they still need a Playstation though.

Nope, that's not like the pennypinchers think. They love the income from PSN but see the hardware just as an expense. (which is actually true as I suppose they are probably making a loss on the HW)

The fact that there might be a link between the two requires understanding how the world works, and I believe it is a requirement nowdays for promotion to the highest echelons to leave useless things like common sense and compassion behind.

and there lies the issue...
the hardware...
since much gaming resides online nowadays...
they could probably design handheld controllers next that contain all that was in the the physical "box" and hence omit the need for a physical "box" ...thereby cutting some large amount of cost...
Charge more for the same service ...essentially...

God knows the future of gaming ...
what will be on the shelf in 20 years may be a "packet" with a pair of sleek glasses...and a small envelope filled with adhesive sensors to slap on key points of the body...
and nothing more...
yet the cost to consumers will continue to go up...
though the material cost to produce, package, ship and have shelf space for ...must always go down...

Yes, like all those companies firing the expensive engineers and keeping only the sales people because they are the ones bringing money.
