I know Sony's trying to raise money to back the PS3, but that's a bit much.

It's harsh, but true. Sony's game division is bleeding money, and they've already sold off the Cell chip business to Toshiba, Columbia TriStar Television/Distribution, and they've been talking about or have sold off their finance business.

Isn't there a division of SOE in India? I ask because $300mil for all of SOE seems way on the cheap side. But that for one India-based studio wouldn't be unrealistic.

Darniaq: There is, but I was under the impression it was *brand* new. Seems a bit quick for them to be selling it off already. I guess nothing's impossible, though.

It's confusing how such a sale got blown into 'the whole subsidiary', though.

Ah, yea, ok. In that context then, $300mil would be pretty steep imho, unless it came with rights to all brands/IP that SOE owned or could extend the rights to.

There are 3 facts:

1) SOE is not on sale
2) Smed: "CU is here to stay!"
3) Earth is flat disc.

I trust more to some rumor written on some random indian site than smed.

Greetings,
