PS4 Expected To Have Outsold Lifetime Sales Of PS3 Within Months

PS4 Expected To Have Outsold Lifetime Sales Of PS3 Within Months

Every month, PlayStation reminds its playerbase why it's a good idea to be a PlayStation Plus subscriber.

Sony also reported that its June quarter ended strongly.

The company raised its annual net income attributable to stockholders guidance to 500 billion yen from the prior range of 480 billion yen, due to the expected increase in income before income taxes, partially offset by an expected increase in tax expenses.

The strong quarter should come as a relief to investors, who were caught flatfooted in April when new CEO Kenichiro Yoshida unveiled a dour full-year forecast, sending shares tumbling. However, since then, the company's share prices have recovered well. However, Sony's gaming division is doing better than ever, with the PlayStation 4 set to surpass the PS3 in lifetime sales very soon. For more on all the games, check out the PlayStation Blog. Sony hasn't said if or when it could sell its remaining holding.

PS4 exclusive titles definitely play a big role in the success of the console and with the recent release of God Of War on PS4, there's a lot of shifting seen from Xbox to PS4.

The gaming business "has gradually changed with the addition of new revenue sources such as PlayStation Plus", Chief Financial Officer Hiroki Totoki said at a briefing, referring to subscription-based online services. If that happens, the console could be looking at over 90 million units shipped in little over five years. However, Sony also angered its gaming fans by not adding a cross-platform facility for the new Nintendo Fortnite game. Guess who contributed the most to that revenue? However, Sony proved the researcher wrong. Software sales increased 5% year-over-year in Q1'18 although hardware sales were down 3% from last year.

According to Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Masahiro Wakasugi, even if one were to look past the one-time gains Sony made in the quarter, the company's core business is growing and generating profits.
