Sony FY12 report: PS3 sells 63.9 million units, sales down across the board

Posted By | On 10th, May. 2012

Sony had forecasted $6.4 billion for their FY12 reports, and they have posted a $5.5 billion overall loss for the company. Out of that $3.2 billion is due to tax write-offs and the rest is due to their Consumer products and services division, which includes the Playstation brand.

The division recorded $2.8 billion loss for the FY. Sales across all divisions are down. This has to be the worst loss Sony has ever posted since they recorded their first loss in 2008.

The PS3 price cut was mentioned as a reason for the losses, and it doesn’t seem like they are capable of dropping the price of the Vita; they are expecting 10 million Vita’s shipped in this fiscal year.

PS3 sold 1.9 million units in Q4 12, and the overall sales for the fiscal year ended up at 13.9 million units, which is lower than 14.3 million units recorded for the previous fiscal year.

The PSP sold 6.8 million units and the PS2 sold 4.1 million units and both of them are significantly down compared to last fiscal year.

Software sales for the PS3 were up significantly, but the software sales for PS2 and PSP were down. Sony is not expected to post a profit for this fiscal year.
