In a move undoubtedly aimed at preventing any further losses
, Sony corp. plans to cut its manufacturing suppliers by more than half. MCVUK
reports the company will be whittling down its 2,500-strong suppliers list to just 1,200 by or before 2011. The restructuring will cut costs by around ¥500 billion ($5.3 billion).
While this is a big change for the company as a whole, it's uncertain how Sony's Computer Entertainment division will be affected. In what ways could this whole business of slimming down
impact SCEA, or the PS3
for that matter?
