When has Howard Stringer or Sony ever said anything close to that? Never. Obviously Sony "cares," but they went from declaring victory to mentioning stalemate. I'm sorry but that is news and it's not taken out of context at all.
I can't believe all you see, if you actually read it completely, is stalemate out of everything he said. And yes most news sites are taking this way out of context,saying :Is Sony ready to throw in the towel? and other ridiculous things like that . Did he say boy we are at a stalemate and there is nothing left to do? No he says "We have a SORT of stalemate AT THE MOMENT. As you know, they had fewer studios, but then they paid a lot of money for Paramount. So we have four studios and they have two or three studios. It's a difficult... it's a difficult fight."

Then most of the rest of the interview was about how much better Blu-Ray is and how much support it enjoys. Finally that they were playing nice but now the gloves are off.
