There’s more good news for Sony. After announcing a 95.7 percent year on year increase in game sales and turning a profit after posting losses last year in the same quarter, Sony has revealed in its Q1 FY 2015 financial report that operating income will increase following reduced PS4 hardware production costs.

“Sales are expected to be higher than the May forecast primarily due to the strong performance of the PS4. Operating income is expected to be higher than the May forecast primarily due to PS4 hardware cost reductions.”

Sony already reported 3.5 million PS3 and PS4 consoles collectively sold in the period between April to June 30th 2014. Though a price drop still seems a ways off – since the PS4 isn’t even a year old yet – Sony will at least be able to turn over a larger profit this time around. Compared to the days of the PS3, that’s not bad for the company.

    That’s awesome news. Sony has been struggling financially for years and if the ps4 didn’t help turn it around they were in big trouble. Hopefully they add more things to their product catalog that sell. A company like Sony can’t subsist on a single product otherwise they will have to close more divisions. Would be nice if the stock went back to ps2 era levels. I’m been sitting on it for years. Can’t sell a single share or ill lose money.
