No, that is not an error. Sony’s gaming division, home of the PlayStation consoles, has indeed turned a profit in their fiscal Q3 (October to December).
Sony said that, in that time period, they have sold 4.93 million PS3s worldwide and have turned a profit in their gaming division. The profit is attributed to Sony lowering both production costs on the PS3 and aggressive price cuts that have spurred sales of the black behemoth.
Congratulations to Sony on managing to turn a profit during what seemed like a tumultuous time for the latest PlayStation console. I am quite interested to see what will happen when Sony actually has top flight games to go along with a solid Blu-Ray lineup.
During the record setting 2007 year that passed, even Sony has managed to make money. Are you surprised or did you think Sony was doing well?
