Sony Q2 FY2014 Financials: PS4 Sold 3.3 Million Units, Brings Total to 13.5 Million
With the detailing of their Q2 FY2014 earnings today, Sony revealed that the PlayStation 4 sold 3.3 million units between July 2014 and September 2014, bringing its lifetime total to 13.5 million. For comparison, the PS4 sold 2.7 million units during Q1 2014.
Since the PS4 was at 10 million sold to consumers as of August 2014, it’s more than likely this 13.5 million is the number sold to retailers, rather than consumers.
Looking at other Sony systems, the PlayStation 3 sold 800,000 units during Q2, while the PlayStation Vita, PlayStation TV, and PlayStation Portable combined for sales of 700,00, which is down from 750,000 in the previous quarter. Meanwhile, overall software sales were at ¥106 billion ($954 million) and overall network sales were at ¥71 billion ($633 million).
Altogether, the Games division for Sony reported ¥309.5 billion ($2.77 billion) in revenue (up 83% year-on-year), which was helped out thanks to PS4 hardware sales, PlayStation Network sales as a result of the PS4, and PS4 software sales. Sony did note that PS3 hardware and software sales were down.
For Sony as a whole, they posted net losses of ¥136 billion ($1.22 billion) in Q2, with an operating loss of ¥85.6bn ($763 million).
