    For those interested Sony made a $35 million profit overall.

    Not a large amount but better than the $200 million loss of Q1 2012.

    I was actually expecting a far heavier loss due to manufacturing of the PS4 and of course R&D costs but only $150m down is actually quite little considering their ambitions of getting so many PS4s out there. Having said that I expect quarter 2 to be close to a $600m loss as production is ramped up significantly, than at release they'll be rubbing their hands together with glee.

    I think that's because how better the smartphone division is doing.

    Good read. To be expected with the imminent arrival of the PS4.
