It's over for the Vita. Let that dream die, it's stupid to be losing money on a dead end product like that. They need to basically (and I hate to say it because I own one and don't mind it at all) end Vita production for North America at least. If it was any more done here it'd be a Thanksgiving turkey.

Damn, I was really hoping we would get an update on PS4 sold through numbers.

who cares for sold thorugh at this point anymore?
channel inventory will be between ~1 and ~2 million depending if its a slow summer quarter, or the busy holiday season

shipped numbers are fine and the most accurate one :)

We'll probably get one at E3.

As of now it's probably around 21.2 million sold through

16M PS4s shipped for FY2015 prediction, price cut this year confirmed. 


only up 1.2m units form FY2014
that seems low for a 100$ pricecut. 
but maybe we'll see 50 only

CY2014 shipments were 15.4m btw
I can see 15 - 16.5m for CY2015


I am not sure about pricecut.

Xbox one is a good example. 150$ price cut and look at their sales.

if they had really good games and price-cut,ps4 could even sell 20 million

48.1 billion yen operating profit for Game in FY2014,


$408m is good but I don't see how it can ever be higher. A loss in the last quarter and a forecast of less profit next year. As I've said many times Gaming isnt a massive profit generator, never really has been.

movies, music and financials rule as ever.

Nintendo has had much higher operating income in their golden years. So it could be higher.

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.


It seems it relates to PSTV and PSVita. If it wasn't obvious before, it is pretty obvious now, the Vita brand is costing sony gaming division a decent amount of money that year. This isn't the first time they had to write poor performance of the vita/tv.

What exactly is harming them in terms of Vita? I don't see them spending anything on the system so how would this be possible?

My guess is that Sony sold ~2.8-2.9m in Q1 of CY2015 bringing total sold-through numbers to 21.3-21.4m.
