Forums - Sales Discussion - Sony Quarterly Results (July-Sep) 2018, PS4: 3.9M (LTD: 86.1M). Year Ending Sales Revised Upward to 17.5M

Yep seems like PS4 will be the fastest to reach 100M HW sales and 1B SW sales... it still have great momentum and Sony will keep saving the price cut for later, this will be a long gen.

FY18 Q2 (July - September) software sales: 75,1million
Software sales as of 30 June 2018: 777.9million

Jesus christ. Closing in on the billion mark fast. Will it get close with Q3? Which is holiday season.

Wow, so they're pretty much bluntly saying "yeah it's costing us less to produce the PS4 now, but suck it, since we're doing well at the current MSRP we're not passing on the savings to consumers". Can't say I blame them though, so close to a new gen where R&D costs are probably through the roof, smart to keep the operatng income as high as possible.

Is this an attempt to turn this positive into a negative? 

Uhhhh, no. Did you miss the parts "i don't blame them" and "smart to keep operating income as high as possible"? A little over defensive much? 



Also PS+ subscription is hovering near total X1 sold, so I'm pretty sure PS+ is getting a bigger revenue from subs (and probably all as well, since it also have bigger userbase for digital sales) than XBL. Don't even mind MAU and other metrics.

PS4 may be the fastest console to sell both 100M hardware units and also 1B software sales.
I don't think we have info about how fast the PS2 has reached that, but considering it was physical only it's quite more likely the PS4 is ahead, now the question is if it can edge it in hardware too... it's definitely edging the Wii but the fight with the PS2 will be pretty close.

Should I necrobump threads claiming it was never going to reach the PS3? Hm...

Do sure

Is this true? Playstation for the quarter made 800m in profit? What's it going to be like come the holiday quarter? 

The forecast for the year was $2.2 billion operating profit, they just increased it to $2.74 billion.

 

Last FY was there best since 1998, they made $1.6 billion, they're completely eclipsing that this year, made half of that just this quarter.

 

Crazy. And the best part is I think they'll beat that again the following year after. 



It is quite amazing week 15 October and we're at 300K world wide. Sony just needs to copy and paste everything this gen and do it again next gen + fan requests. Key IP remakes. Continued first party exclusives. A solid Console.

With the leaked PS4 bundle for Black Friday. Sony could be revising up the PS4 sales once again.



How strong is the music business of Sony? That would be interesting too, for me.
