Will Microsoft Buy Out Sony’s PS Consoles?

The PS3 isn’t even out yet but many analysts are not optimistic about Sony’s future. Falling stock prices, less than spectacular movie sales, a failing UMD (PSP media) market, and the predicted high price of the upcoming PS3 could snowball into a low-cost buyout in SonyÂ’s future. Brent Kirkwood, writing for Bona Fide Reviews, thinks Microsoft will take advantage of Sony’s financial woe.

“I personally see this happening regardless of the Blu-ray market by 2014. I for one can just see the looks on SonyÂ’s main competitors faces at this time, all the gleaming in the world coming from One Microsoft way ( the road both Nintendo HQ and MS HQ reside on) as this could turn out to be the largest upset in consumer electronics history,” he says. “Will the next Playstation… post-PS3 run a Microsoft operating system and have backwards compatibility for PS1 PS2 PS3 Xbox and Xbox360?… this doesnÂ’t seem as far fetched as it once did.” Don’t say he didn’t warn you.
