Sony Sells Its $437 Million Worth of Stock in Social Gaming Company DeNA

on March 4, 2013 7:50 PM

According to a news report by IGN, Sony has just sold off $437 million of its shares in DeNA, a social gaming company Sony had partnered with previously.

While this may be a sign that Sony is moving away from mobile gaming and focusing entirely on the Playstation brand, it makes me wonder if it may also be a result of Sony’s recent move to make a larger Indie platform through self-publication on the Playstation Network. If Indie’s really take to the Sony self-publishing move, it could expand the mobile and Vita games exponentially in a relatively short time.

What’s Sony up to? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
