In their financial report for Q1 Fiscal Year 2017 (ended June 30, 2017), Sony revealed that 3.3 million PlayStation 4 consoles were shipped during the three-month period (down from 3.5 million in Q1 FY16), bringing the lifetime total to 63.3 million.
Game & Network Services sales were up 5.4% year-on-year to 348.1 billion yen ($3.16 billion), which Sony says is thanks to an increase in PS4 software sales, as well as the “contribution” of PlayStation VR, but it was partially offset by the September 2016 PS4 price drop.
While sales were up, Operating Income fell by 59.7% to 17.7 billion yen, “primarily due to the absence of the significant contribution from Uncharted 4,” as well as that PS4 price drop.
Sony adds that Network Revenue rose 34% year-on-year.
Last we heard, the number of PS4s sold through to consumers was 60.4 million.
For this current fiscal year, Sony expects to ship 18 million PS4s, down from 20 million in the previous fiscal year.
