    Tokyo Building was 1.1 billion, NY was 1.2 billion.
    Tokyo - http://www.joystiq.com/2013/02/28/so...or-1-2billion/
    NY - http://au.gamespot.com/news/sony-sel...illion-6404622
    So that is 2.3 billion right?

    In this time Sony also acquired Gaikai and EMI Publishing which together cost over 2.5 billion.
    This is also neglecting other acquisitions made but already make the difference.

    Does it really matter, games made 18 million, regardless of sales etc, at a time when they are just about to launch a new console.
    This gen is very very long in the tooth now, and any one who can make some money whilst gearing up for a new launch is doing just fine.

    Looks like it will be very temporary. PS3 days are numbered according to Sony.

    Pretty good achievement considering the prior circumstances. They'll be in the red next year and probably the year after, games division at least

    I don't think so, but if they are they will only "just" be in the red, R&D on games is going to be way down, and game output way up.
    That's go tot be a win on the software front for PS4 games.
    I would be surprised given what they can eek out of the PS3, if they will be in the red next year.

    Watched a program about Sony last night, By the looks of things....They are $#@!ed!! They cannot sustain the huge loses for much longer.....Even if the PS4 does extremely well they'l still be struggling and will most likely still be hemorrhaging money.

    It's scary how much they would of lost if they didnt sell 1.6 billion worth of property, They also had to let 10,000 staff go

    I don't really see anything noteworthy here. Sony as a company bit the financial bullet they had to bite in order to get the PS4 in development.

    It'll still sell more than the competition YOY

    They just lowered what they think they'll sell compared to the previous years. Being discontinued is not going to happen. That's foolish when they are making money on each ps3 sold.

    Yea, they really need the ps4 to do well and I think it will. How much will it help is the real question.

    And two new consoles are coming out this year. Why would this mean that the PS3 is going to stop selling soon?

    It's cash-cow for the PS3 from here on out.
