Want more numbers? Of course. Who doesn’t love numbers? If you don’t: too bad. Sony released some Quarter 3 financials today and they look pretty good overall. Their game division posted profits after several quarters of losses. Improvements were attributed to the reduction of PS3 hardware costs, increased software sales and improved PSP sales.
Sony also changed their forecast a bit by increasing projected financial year end PSP sales from 10 million to 13 million and reducing PS3 sales projections from 11 million to 9.5 million. It’s nice to set goals, but did Sony truly believe they can sell 11 million to retailers by the end of the fiscal year?
As for Sony’s electronics division, they posted increased sales, but a decrease in profits citing exchange rate and SGA as factors.
