The Future of Sony and Activision

Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI  ) has been in the news a lot these last few days after news broke that it was buying independence from its parent company Vivendi.

Sony (NYSE: SNE  ) released earnings last week, as well, and things aren't looking great for the company -- sales are down, and R&D spending is up heading into the newest console cycle. Will this spell disaster for Sony shareholders?
