So they're slightly down on hardware sales compared to last year, but up on software. Also kind of strange to see that digital ratios peak in Q1/4 and then are a fair bit lower in Q2/3.

And they currently have 34.3m PS+ subscriptions? At £50 a year that's over £1.7 billion a year in revenue. That's crazy money! And that's assuming everybody is getting the cheaper year long subscriptions. If a bunch of those are getting the more expensive 1/3 month ones they'd be raking in even more cash :O

And yet they don't use any of this juicy money to make more LoD :c

Would be nice if they start announcing 1st party game sales on their quartely reports, btw, missed chance there.

They actually asked Shawn Layden about a 1st party JRPG studio on the last Blogcast. He didn't have anything to say about it, but they do seem to be aware that PlayStation fans are looking for a WWS caliber JRPG. LoD would be the ultimate launch title for a new JRPG studio, and create huge buzz for PS5. Just saying.

I wish they would be up front about sales of 1st party titles as well. Why not show 1st party sales, and show the split between PSN and Retail. It's all positive news, might as well give the media some more headlines for some free promotion.

As expected they had to up review their sales for PS4, and I believe they can still outsell that.

And their R&D increase with some of their flagship games already being release may point to more investment on PS5 being made.

I think there is no doubt that there is a PS5. the only question is when its going to get released

No doubt that there is PS5, even Sony higher ups already confirmed they will launch another console (and we know they start working on the next console as soon as they release the current console). It's just that they may be INCREASING the R&D so the launch is getting nearer. Like within 24 months.

PS4 LTD : 86,1M
Damn in less than five years.
PS4 will be above 100M when PS5 will be release.

Apparently they don't need to do it at all since the PS4 is still flying off the shelves faster than Sony projected without any big price decrease.

Most importantly it means that the ps4 will take the PS3 this month. That's impressive.

with the crypto-mining hype going on part prices were increasing in late 2017 till early 2018 and have gone done quite a bit since then - Sony definitely felt some impact from that aswell, so they couldn't drop prices

now they should be in a better position to atleast drop normal price to $249 and have more frequent $199 sales

$150 might not be reachable unless 7nm production gives them another nice reduction in costs



Also PS4 ha sc toppled the 360.
