I Just Realized: Sony's Videogame Division has had it rough.

It's like Sony just keeps getting abused over and over by this thing we call fate.

To begin with Sony had a pretty terrible PS3 launch, thanks to a 600$ price point, and some pretty egotistical statements by Sony representatives at the time.

Then we had the PSP, which has done poorly compared to the DS, and even worse if you compare it to smartphones, if you're of the opinion that smartphones are a mobile gaming platform. In addition, the PSP Go was as successful as a Roman orator with a speech impediment and missing a tongue, a.k.a. not very successful.

This generation many of what were previously Playstation exclusive titles, such as Final Fantasy, and Grand Theft Auto, have appeared on Xbox 360.

And the cherry on the top of this abysmal ice cream sundae of economic woe is the recent PSN debacle.

I fully realize there are other sections of Sony involved with things other than video games.

But at the same time, I can't help but feel a bit bad for how they have done this generation, I wish them the best of luck in the coming years.
