Sony v Lik-Sang analysis

Posted on Thursday, October 26 2006 @ 02:01:24 CEST by

Not many people are thrilled with the Lik-Sang closure. But what do imports really do to business? Brett Thomas goes behind the bruised feelings and resentment to look at the real issue - do imports actually hurt anyone? And why would Sony want to close them down?

"Sony is between a rock and a hard place. If it fails to make this launch semi-profitable, it could bleed out. Tick off many more gamers, and there may be nobody in line to buy it. Whether we like it or not, the PS3 is a product and we are consumers, and Sony needs to make sure its product is successful. This launch is already turning into the Titanic for the company; and if the boat sinks, we might have a lot less to drool over the next time around.

If that does happen, it would almost be poetic justice. We'll cheer as consumers, waving our still-full wallets proudly, but as next year's big titles come out, we'll mourn as gamers. As much as we all love the service Lik-Sang provided, is it worth stifling one of the three biggest competitors in the video game industry? Are you really ready to hand Microsoft all of your money?"
