PlayStation 3, PSP and software sales down for Sony

Matt Martin 09:41 (BST)
30/07/2009

Sony has recorded a loss for the first quarter of the year, with a decline in sales of the PlayStation 3 and PSP hitting the company's Networked Product and Services division.

The company sold approximately 1.1 million PlayStation 3's during the quarter and 1.3 million PSP units, compared to 1.6 million and 3.7 million, respectively, for the same period last year. Sales of the ageing PlayStation 2 reached 1.6 million for the quarter.

Sales for the PlayStation business, which also includes Viao PCs, were down 37.4 per cent year-on-year, to JPY 246.8 billion (USD 2.571 billion), "due to lower game and Vaio PC sales," said the company.

The division recorded an operating loss of JPY 39.7 billion (USD 414 million) for the three months ended June 30, compared to JPY 4.6 billion, again, "mainly due to a deterioration in profitability in the game and Vaio PC business."

Specifically, the company noted a decline in software sales and PSP hardware sales.

Sales of Sony's PlayStation 3 software reached 14.8 million units for the quarter ended June 30, down from the 22.8 million units sold during the same period last year.

This part is kinda ironic:

And although the PlayStation 2 sold more units during the quarter than the PS3 or PSP, software sales also fell to 8.5 million units, down from the 19.3 million in 2008.
Geez...

It's been a long time I don't use the forums so.. Anyway.. If we're not going to discuss this thread just close it. This isn't supposed to be a thread to discuss in how much time an internet news gets old, or something like that ... -.-

Hmm, IMSHO a PSP 3000 with Rock Band, School of Rock download, and a 4GB Memory card is a steal @ $199.99, even if I replaced mine (Rock Band) with the SNK Arcade Pack...

A PSP is much better than a DSi!
