I've always liked their products, I've had a playstation and playstation 2 for years now and have never had a problem. Heck I even dropped my ps2 by accident and it still works. So if they make good products why can't they take a snap at making computers?

Because they don't want to have to compete with Microsoft on two fronts.

Well, think about it. Xbox360 is losing to PS3. If they were to split their efforts, maybe Xbox360 = PS3, or worse, Xbox360 > PS3.

What the hell are you talking about? 360 gets more sells than that shitty black/silver block. The only place it fails in, is Japan.


And sony hasnt done this since everything they make breaks in some kind of way.

Who says they haven't? The US miltary uses PS3s running on linux to build their supercomputers, not PCs.

In the same vein, the UK navy uses PSPs for training, rather than PCs.

Sony likely _does_ develop computer hardware, but just are not available to the public. Likely some miltary spec or contract is involved.

Oh, but they have.

I had a Sony vaio desktop back in 1998. ran half life 1 like a dream.

They make desktop computes and laptop, mostly under the Vaio name. they even make fashion net books. expire their site, you'll see their computers.

and when a company goes into the computer market, they are not competing against microsoft. with the exception of the 360, MICROSOFT DOES NOT MANUFACTURE HARDWARE. they only write SOFTWARE for all the other PC products in the market. Sony uses MICROSOFT WINDOWS on all their computer products.

Smile

edit: Super computers are not made by muddling up PS3s together, they are often in todays world made using multiple Server hardware products. using PS3s would be a waste of time, since they're not Open software wise, and they don't run on Intel Prosessers, witch many developers would need to write suffient code for a supercomputer. the military does not use consumer hardware for that matter, and i doubt that sony makes it.

edit: the uk uses PSPs for training? what? lol that doesn't even make any sense.
