Sony still generated a profit, HDTV sales and profits were up, some HDTV sales may be attributed to the PS3 which is an excellent HD gaming console as well as an excellent Blu-Ray player.
I think Sony will be able to weather through the current economic crisis without really major problems this year.
wow, someone hasn't been paying attention. Sony itself has already announced to have major problems, especially with the current Yen rate. There's a big chance that Sony as a whole will be in the red this Q and FY. SCE doesn't even stand a chance of being profitable over the whole year.
Besides: most HDTV's are being sold because they're flat and because the neighbours have one. Mainstream consumers don't have a clue what HD. Saying the PS3 contributes to HDTV sales is the world upside down.
