Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony FY2014 Earnings (2.4m PS4 + 400k PS3, 450k PSV + PSP)

So can someone figure out with the PS3 numbers who is ahead, I think it's the 360?

These financial results (for the quarter) aren't what I expected. Only profit made in music, movies and financial? How did gaming not make a profit? I'm down south on business so I will take a proper look later.


Maybe because the ps4 launched in the quarter before? year on year gaming is up 25%



PS3:

FY06 - 3.5 million
FY07 - 9.1 million
FY08 - 10.1 million
FY09 - 13.0 million
FY10 - 14.3 million
FY11 - 13.9 million
FY12 - 16.5 million (includes PS2)
FY13 - 7.1 million
FY14 - 3.1 million

Total= 90.6m - PS2 FY12.

 

PS3 Should be over 88m easily, it's heavily undertracked here.

Like I said before Sony really have a problem with making a profit on their game division even when they are dominating like crazy. It is the Ps one/PS2 generation over again where they sold a ton of consoles and software but profits were rather dissapointing.


This is becuase of how Kutaragi ran the gaming unit. They still run it the same way today, and the board is going at Kaz because he is not running the company in the Sony way. 

Sony is not a buisness of stashing away mountains of cash, it is about innovating, and putting the money from customers back into the products. The PlayStation unit has R&D going for PS4 revisions, PS Vita and TV revisions, Project Morphues, Morpheus/Camera peripherals, PlayStation Network improvments, expansion of PS Now, and PS Vue to more areas, and more devices. Then they have dozens of games in development across their studios, and they are not out to make a hit with every one of them. They are trying to make games for every corner of the market. Some are garenteed losses, some are risks to expand gaming to new places. This is what Sony does.

There will never be a point in time where we see Microsoft and Apple sized profits out of Sony. It won't happen if they match, double, triple, or see revenue 10x greater than them. Sony does not operate to line the walls of their buildings with cash, and give mountains of gold to executives to sit on. Sony is about re-investing into the buisness, innovating, and placing no walls in the way of creativity and imagination.

That is why I love Sony and the PlayStation brand, and why I absolutly detest the success of the money hoarding and un-innovative companies leading market today. 



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I think this was the last time we saw the PSP guys. Might be Vita only from now on.
But Sony can start doing a PS3 + PSV if both don't seem good separated.

Nice to see the PS4 doing good.



playsation sales are down 25% YoY, while 
xbox sales are down 20% YoY
Ps4 sales are down 20%, too

the gaming market doesn't look that great.
it will make a transition to less sales, but making more money per user

 

this does not look good for calendar year 2015
sonys ps4 sales won't be up by much
15-17m sales at BEST (CY 2014 was 15.4m)



what were Sony projections for the PS4?



psn- tokila

add me, the more the merrier.

sony ps3 shipments are below 87m units as of 31 march 2015
xb360 is either a decent marging ahed, or the xbox one is stelling way better, than most think

no you are completely wrong


ps shipped 80m as of early november 2013
in that quarter (october - december 2013 they shipped 3.3 ps3)

so ps3 shipments are at 87m maximum (this would mean the did not ship one single unit in october 2013)

Vita is still doing quite well because PSP shipments must be minimal right now. So it's probably shipping the same as PS3.



...Let the Sony Domination continue with the PS4...
