  10. I think it'll be very hard for them to recover, but a company so big, I'm sure will earn it's reputation back somehow!

  11. Didn't they make a loss on every PS3 they sold too? It's a good job Sony manufacture other stuff as well as the console or I swear they'd be close to bankruptcy.

  13. Yeah I could see why they would lose money, with their online service being down a long time.

  15. They should ask Bill Gates if he can donate it. Last I heard, Gates has the money to pay that off 33 times and still have over 400 million dollars.
