    its more that they used to have good products worth the higher price tag.
    Now they have decent products for high end prices.

    Samsung make Sony TV's now I believe. They need to concentrate on the playstation, their future lies in gaming consoles imo.

    They have been a bad company for a while now. The only product of theirs I would ever buy is playstation but there isn't many options when it comes to consoles. I like Microsoft even less.

    Microsoft and Sony actually lose money on their consoles for quite a bit before actually turning a profit from what I recall

    They lose money on the consoles in order to make money from the games.

    They used to be great, but then they got big-headed and used proprietary formats for everything.

    not as much as previous generations.

    sony said after ps+ and a game, so essential 2 games, or 1 and some digital games (without PS+) and they have a profit.

    Samsung is the king for screens. Even iPhone gets their screens from Samsung.
