For the first time in 5 years, Sony Corp. turned a net profit. 43b Yen/$432m/£280m to specific.
While this is nowhere near the heights of Sony 10 years ago, they are clearly moving in the right direction. With Kaz at the helm, Sony has released a strong contender in the mobile space: the Xperia Z. There is also the impending release of the PS4 later this year. It remains to be seen where Sony move forward in the Photography and Television industries but Sony have made a good start.
It is important to remember Sony have recently sold off significant buildings, generating $2.5 billion. If that’s taken into account, Sony would very much still be in the red. Thoughts?

So as if Microsoft hadn’t dropped a big enough date-bomb today, Apple too wanted in on the game. Apple’s annual World Wide Developers Conference will be held between June 10-14, 2013.
Yeah, I know it’s not gonna be a blockbuster console reveal (or could it? ) but we’re sure to hear about iOS7, along with the next generation OSX. But theres plenty of rumours swirling around that maybe we’ll see the iPhone 5S in June.
Excited? Couldn’t care? Comment!

Sony’s recent history has not been the best, from issuing broken promises, to not being able to deliver on basic features the Playstation Nation is starving for.
Some people that would normally not even second guess buying the next-gen system coming from Sony are now not sure what they will do, or they are finally looking at giving the next-gen console coming from Microsoft a fair shake.
It is very safe to say that Sony has taken its Playstation Nation on a roller coaster ride this generation from the console launching at $499, launch games not meeting the expectation of gamers from what was showin to them at E3 before the console launched, PSN being down for a month, to losing top exclusives.
This years E3 will be the most important E3 in the history of the Playstation brand.
In this episode of DLBTV, DLB discusses rumors along with giving his expectations on Sony’s upcoming console, the PlayStation 4, or PlayStation ‘Orbis’ as it could also be renamed to.

We all know that Samsung, has been hell bent on going after Apple’s lunch in the smartphone arena, but it’s now on overdrive.
Samsung’s recent volley of ads not only insults Apple, but insults the very people they want to switch over to Samsung’s brand of smartphones. Not wise. If the ads were working the way Samsung wanted them to, the media would be talking about rabid sales of their device… they aren’t. Instead it’s Apple. Its hard enough to shame folks to pull their darn pants up so we can’t see their drawers, do they really think they can shame people to not get an iPhone? Really?
So the PlayStation Vita has finally hit the top of the charts in Japan after struggling for quite some time since its release, the catalyst for making the spike in sales… A rhythm game developed by SEGA called “Hatsune Miku Project Diva f”, Japan certainly has an interesting type of game that will sell systems, but why hate, a game is a game and the Vita is doing good for now!
