Sony to sell PC business, increase TV focus on 4K products, lay-off 5000 staff
Thursday, 6th February 2014 06:34 GMT By Matt Martin

Playstation PS4 Division Not Effected.

Electronics giant Sony is to sell off it’s Vaio business to concentrate on smartphones and tablets.

Sony has confirmed plans to sell its PC business – the Vaio brand – to investment firm Japan Industrial Partners, with an agreement set to be finalized by the end of March.

“Following a comprehensive analysis of factors, including the drastic changes in the global PC industry, Sony’s overall business portfolio and strategy, the need for continued support of Sony’s valued VAIO customers, and future employment opportunities for personnel involved in the VAIO business, the company has determined that concentrating its mobile product lineup on smartphones and tablets and transferring its PC business to a new company established by JIP is the optimal solution,” said Sony.



Around 250-300 personnel are expected to be hired by a new company formed by JIP, with Sony ceasing all manufacturing and planning of PC products.

In the TV business, which has been under reform since 2011, Sony intends to increase production of high-end 4K and 2K TVs. It will also split out the TV business as a wholly owned subsidiary by the end of July 2014.

As a result of the changes, Sony expects to lay off around 5000 employees by the end of the 2014 financial year – 1500 in Japan and 3500 overseas.

Uhh... Wow.
1) The PS4 is sold at a $60 loss, not a $100 loss.
2) The PS3 was sold at up to a $300 loss and Sony still profited from their games division.
3) The selling of Vaio is due to the unprofitability of the consumer PC market, it has nothing to do with the PS4 as you imply.
4) Their games division is generating record breaking revenue since the release of the PS4 and is generating serious profit. But sure, don't let facts get in the way of your fanboying. You're as bad as the 'Cr@pple is d00med' PC assholes that seem to be all over the net that let their fantasy bubbles override reality.

4K is a gimmick, another fail

4K is a gimmick, another fail sony invested in, couple that with the $100 lost every PS4 sold and you have yourself a negative bank statement, thus we gotta sell VAIO to pay for it, suck for them, but bad investments mean you won't stay a power player, and this shows it. This equals to them, as if Microsoft were to get out of the operating system game, and people don't realise that's what it really means and will just trash talk what I said not knowing any better. I say Sony has maybe another 5 years give or take a couple before it's gone entirely.
