    Sony FY12 results: PS3/PS2 ships 16.5 million, company makes profit after four years

    Sony has released its financial results for fiscal year 2012 today as expected and they’ve made a profit.

    The company has been combining the numbers for PS3 and PS2; and PSP and PS Vita, so we don’t have accurate numbers of how much they shipped.

    The PS3/PS2 totals are at 80.4 million compared to Xbox 260′s 77.2 million. It’s not clear how much the PS2 shipped but if it did less than 3 million then the PS3 has officially surpassed the Xbox 360 in worldwide sales.

    However, that is insignificant now. Sony is expecting increased sales for the next fiscal year due to the introduction of the PS4. The operating income will be flat YOY because of research and development, and marketing expenses for the new system.

    Sony shifted slightly less software this fiscal year compared to the last one but the drop isn’t that big which shows that consumers are still buying a lot of PS3 games and it’s still a viable platform. The PS3 hardware and software sales along with PS4 sales should offset the expenses generated due to the next-gen shift.

    The company has made $458 million in net income for FY 12 mainly due to sales of assets.

    The games division even made an 18 million profit, that's pretty good going 6 months out from a new console launch.

    Likely passed MS finally tooo.

    Now just seal the deal with the PS4 and you'll be the untouchable king again.

    -[ Over half of the 100~ish UHD Blu-rays on the market ]-
    -[ I wouldn't even watch if they came free with my breakfast cereal ]-

    Yeah it'll catch the Wii, I said it in like 2008. The Wii has pretty much stopped at 99 million right now for the past year.

    Looks like Sony has turned the ship around. The console king will live to see another day.
