PlayStation Q2: Back in Black
Sony released their financial statements for Q2 2008 (fiscal Q1, calendar Q2, April through June), and it’s good to see that the PlayStation business back in the black. Sony’s gaming division made profits of ¥5.4 billion yen on revenue of ¥229.6 billion yen.
As you can see, both hardware unit sales and software unit sales are up. The report says, “Hardware sales increased while software sales decreased”. Since software unit sales were up, I assume this means that software dollar sales were down, which means that the average software selling price has dropped as they are selling more budget priced titles.
