"Sony Corp soared 11 percent after Daiwa Securities
raised its rating to 'buy' from 'neutral,' saying that the
company could turn profitable in fiscal 2014 due to strong
smartphone sales. The stock closed at a 11-month high of 1,668
yen and was the main board's most traded stock by turnover.
Japan's business daily Nikkei reported that the Xperia Z, a
new smartphone model Sony launched last month, was the
top-selling model in Japan for four straight weeks."

Strong smart phone sales?

I assume that is in Japan because I can't remember the last time I saw a Sony smart phone actually being used in the US.

Sony and profit in the same sentence is a nice change of pace for the VGF.

I think the phone sales would have to be Japan since Apple and Android phones are king in the US.

Good to see Sony is turning a profit this year so far though.

Oh wait.

Yeah, because only the US and Japan have cell phone coverage, and only your personal experience counts.

I am so happy I picked up some Sony last year at $10 a share. I really like Sony's future. I think the ps4 will be a great success for them. There was a thread late last year about SNE, I believe a few of us invested. I can't remember who else did.

The Vita is also looking stronger in Japan, that should help a bunch.

Well, where else would Sony phones be the most popular but the US or Japan?

I never said only my personal experience counts but I am regularly in very busy metropolitan areas and I very rarely see Sony phones in use.

I follow cell phones pretty closely as cell phone wars are much more entertaining than console wars and Sony phones are most popular in Europe, I read an article about a joint marketing campaign with Skyfall the James Bond movie that they believed help move a lot of Sony phones in Europe. They are slowly building a name in the states but wont have the marketing or name recognotion to compete with Samsung and Apple mobile for a while.

LMAO. I hope you weren't being serious. :)

Sounds like a new hit show for A&E: "Cell Phone Wars" where U.S. Cellular and Sprint salesmen try to get customers to sign 2 year contracts, while the dark horse of the show is Steve, the Apple Store guy.

Europe? Latin America? Asia?

HAHA Cinema I could totally see that show actually being on TV.

Sorta serious I mean people arguing about consoles and XBL vs PSN is now tired, but windows vs android vs apple fans arguing is much more enertaining especially with companies suing each other and stuff.

Apparently the answer is-

India.

Sony sold its NYC and Tokyo office buildings this year. That's the only reason they could be profitable. I suggest you pull your money out asap.

Jason, why don't you just come out of the closet and admit you're a Sony hater all the way :D

He owns a PS3, doesn't that give him the right to mock it? Besides it is so easy to get under the skin of Sony lovers. It really, really is. They really need to lighten up.

Kind of like I own both the xbox 360 and the WiiU and mock them. So why do you get all uptight when someone other than you or Jason in this case does it?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 15, 2013 8:18:15 PM PDT
Dukeshire says:
Because you have never, ever said anything positive about either one. You refuse to see anything wrong with Sony or the PS3. You come up with excuses no matter what. And you rarely if ever discuss games. You and Flores and McClane never join in games discussions. Jason does all the time. And you troll 360 forums with your nonsense in order to get a rise.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 15, 2013 8:44:03 PM PDT
I refuse? Haha, I never said the PS3 is perfect. I just refuse to accept that the Xbox 360 is better. See the difference?

Now what games would you like to discuss, I have many of the latest multiplats and many PS3 exclusives.

Dukeshire says:
Oh, come on Dougie. Anything and everything pertaining to the 360 is negative. You trolled the Gears thread by whining about how bad Gears 3 was, despite paying for it knowing what you will get out of it....

Ultimately: When have you said anything positive? When do you discuss games? You only come on when something negative is said about Sony or if it is a 360 thread (and now WiiU). In fact, and I could be wrong but I cannot recall the last time you said anything negative about Sony. Just admit that you are a blind fanboy.

I have all three gears and the only thing I said negative about gears 3 is that the voice acting is very cheesy. But I guess having an opinion that differs from yours makes me a blind fanboy.
