  • - 17.8 million PS4s sold in 2018 (Switch sold 16.95 units, Xbox One sold Error 404 Not Available units)
  • - Gaming Operating Profit : ¥311.1bn / $2.81B (+75.3% YoY from ¥177.5bn / $1.60B - FY2017)

--> Best FY ever for the Gaming Division in terms of Revenue and Operating Profit <--

(FY2017 broke these records last year)

When launch aligned, the PS4 is now on track to reach 100m faster than the Wii and inline with the PS2.

So PS4 will pass up the Wii this year. And tracking at PS2's pace currently, but it may not match the PS2's final crazy numbers (159 million!!!)

  • - Sony forecasts 16m PS4 for 2019. Also predicts lower profit and sales for 2019 FY due to concentration on PS5 and smaller first-party footprint than last year
  • - Sony also said no new console release in the next 12 months (I'm thinking a PS5 2020 holiday release anyways)

https://twitter.com/ZhugeEX/status/1121760406895304704

Sony says profit for gaming will be down next year as it ramps up investment in PS5. Also suggests first party software sales will be lower this year which suggests they may not have a big 1P (First Party) presence. Last year had God of War, Spiderman and Detroit etc...

I mean, Sony released their annual Fiscal Report a few hours ago. MS and Nintendo did theirs already in the last couple days. Why would we not mention Sony's report earnings? It's kind of relevant gaming news, and at least Sony releases console sales figures. No one knows jack shit about Xbox One's numbers, but it's likely to be passed up by the Switch very soon.

@SecretPolice said:

Yes, because 35m is bigger than 96.8m, and Media Create sales (for one country out of fifty) keeps us up at night

One thing is for certain. Cows will never be shook by Microsoft Game Division Fiscal Reports.

Is epic seeing KNOWN lemmings hiding on the switch.. Haahhaa

More when the switch will never catch the PS4 and is soon to pass the xbox one craptastic sales.

Total PS4 profits ($3.84B) [without FY2018] exceed total PS1 profits ($3.03B), the entire PS2 profits ($2.22B) or offset the total PS3 loss ($-3.54B) !

- The PS4 profits of FY2018 alone ($2.81B) exceed the entire PS2 profits during its 6 years ($2.22B)

I like this ^^ one piece in particular in just 2018 the PS4 profits offset the total PS3 losses...hahahahaaa

This is a good one since for year some lemming cry how the PS3 loss sony all PS2 profits and in just 1 year now sony made as much money as they loss all gen with the PS3.

I'm sure they will pass 100 million it's obvious sales will slow as the gen is winding down for next gen. Might be another spike for a month or so when tlou 2 releases.

It’s hilarious seeing lems hide behind Switch Japanese sales numbers. They’ve been so completely wrecked that they have to hide behind another console’s sales in a country where Xbox is a complete laughing stock. 😂🤣🤣 How are Xbox sales in Japan lems?

Never understood why Cows care so much about units shipped, sold ect.. DO you all own stock? The bragging rights of units sold is the most childish crap I've ever encountered. Next it'll be how many controllers sold worldwide or stands for the playstation. Bunch of fools you guys are.

Man PS4 still selling great. Props for Switch giving them some competition too but I’m shocked at how many PS4’s have sold. I mainly use mine as a blu ray player but it just goes to show that much like the PS2 a lot of peeps buy it because of the combo of disc format as well as the games. Makes sense why Sony doesn’t seem interested in the all digital future. That’ll kill a lot of their business.

Bro, your salt is overflowing. What do I have to be salty about in a thread with PS4 having their best FY ever and PS4 being the number 1 sold console on the planet?

You have everything to be mad at. 😂 Didn't MS post Xbone sales down 33% lol? No wonder you're mad, your dying console has been taken off life support. No hope for lems, last place last gen and about to be last place this gen as well.

Actually looking at it i miss read what i quoted,nothing more nothing less.

Is the PS4 profits without counting 2018 which already have offset the loss of the whole PS3 gen.

I was wrong.
