Sony’s Quaterly Financials

Sony just released their quarterly financial report for calendar Q4 2007, which is fiscal Q3 2007. Below, I refer to this as calendar Q4.

Their game division reports an operating profit of $113 million (operating income – operating expenses). Money spent on hardware isn’t booked as an expense until that hardware is sold.

Hardware Sales in Quarter

(in millions)

Q4, 2007 Q4, 2006
PS2 5.40 6.75
PSP 5.76 4.71
PS3 4.90 1.66

Software Sales in Quarter

(in millions)

Q4, 2007 Q4, 2006
PS2 60.9 78.6
PSP 18.3 21.3
PS3 26.0 5.3

It’s nice to see that Sony’s game division is turning a profit.

Bad News: PS3 Sales targest for FY’07 (4/1/07 through 3/31/08) are lowered by 1.5 million from the original 11 million target to 9.5 million.

Good News #1: PSP sales targets are increased by 3 million from 10 million to 13 million.

Good News #2: PS3 outsold 360 for the overall fourth quarter of 2007! PS3 sold 4.9 milllion units worldwide, while 360 sold 4.3 million units. Way to go PS3!

    somehow the financial market didn’t like these numbers, eventough they do impres me.

    they went down for 1,94% (at the moment of writing)

    Because Sony lowered its projected sales of the PS3 (but they raised it for the PS2 and PSP)…

    Stock markets are an abomination!!

    The interesting part is if you add up the numbers…they are over 14 million units shipped.
