Sony Blue-LDEC. 28, 2009 • Sony Corp. has decided that maintaining separate distribution operations for it electronics, computer and video game divisions no longer makes sense, and will consolidate its international distribution this fiscal year to eliminate duplicative costs.

Impact: For years we have scratched our heads watching how little Sony’s major divisions cooperated with each other. Yet challenged profit and loss results has a way of changing bad habits. We’re just sorry that it took so long to happen.
