Sony Q1 FY14: PS3+PS4 = 3.5M: Company & Game Div profitable

#1 Edited by -Damien- (5355 posts) -

http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/IR/financial/fr/14q1_sony.pdf

Estimate is 3M PS4 sold in Q1 FY14

PSV+PSP = 0.75M

Company Operating Income = 690M USD

Sales were 1,809.9 billion yen (17,920 million U.S. dollars), an increase of 5.8% compared to the same quarter of the previous fiscal year (“year-on-year”). This increase was primarily due to a significant increase in G&NS segment sales, reflecting the contribution of the PlayStation 4 (“PS4”) which was launched in November 2013, a significant increase in Pictures segment sales primarily due to higher theatrical revenues in Motion Pictures, as well as the favorable impact of foreign exchange rates. This increase was partially offset by a significant decrease in sales in All Other, primarily related to Sony’s exit from the PC business. On a constant currency basis, sales increased 3% year-on-year. For further details about sales on a constant currency basis, see Note on page 9.

Operating income increased 34.3 billion yen year-on-year to 69.8 billion yen (691 million U.S. dollars). Thisincrease was primarily due to a significant improvement in the operating results of the G&NS segment partially offset by a significant deterioration in the operating results of the MC segment.

$17 million dollar profit?????? ROFL. You are going to need a lot of these quarters to get back that last $1.2 billion dollar loss.

LOL... MS is a quitter. They ain't gonna fight if the odds aren't in their favor. They're gonna abandon the Xbone and release the Xbox TWO in 2-3 years.

LOL, you actually think Sony is doing good as a company. Great quarter, bad last 5 years.

#20 Posted by WilliamRLBaker (28515 posts) -

So basically because of layoffs, restructuring, sale of retail properties, and the closure/sell off of the vaio property they are profitable for a short bit.

Think you should have read that yourself before posting it. The 690 million is their operating income which is better but still weak compared to their competitors who makes billions in profit per quarter. I'm guessing gaming is now the core of Sony's business.

They won $680 millions...hahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

But but but Sony is going bankrupt..

So basically another quarter like this and they already made the 1.2 billion dollars loss you held on to..lol

The best part is how the PS4 beat the xbox one shipments like 5 to 1.?

Step in the right direction.

Quarter 2-4 will be interesting. When their overhead cuts don't play into the numbers. If they pull a profit then. Sony may be in good shape.

These numbers right now do not represent true future numbers. Now actual profits will have to carry Sony. Unless more cut-backs are made.

Good news.

Its still mostly doomed, but not the Playstation division. Posting losses for over half a decade doesn't go away with one mildly positive quarter. But its a start. :)

Sony said operating profit in the first quarter of its fiscal year surged to 69.8 billion yen ($680 million) from 35.5 billion yen a year earlier, easily beating the 16.6 billion yen expected according to the average of six analysts' estimates according to Thomson Reuters Starmine. A one-off gain from the sale of a technology facility in Japan also contributed nearly 15 billion yen to the quarterly operating profit, Sony said.

http://www.cnbc.com/id/101881790

Clearly say PROFITS ...

Billions which are not related to the xbox one,as MS has been accuse of hiding loss on the xbox and surface brand under money made from Android patent money.

Fact is the PS4 out shipped the xbox one like 5 to 1 or more is killing it.

Sony's game division will not be "profitable" until it pays back its tens of billions in previous losses.
