In terms of revenue, Sony’s gaming segment brought in Yen 883.2 billion (approximately Rs 61,323 crores), wherein the total operating income or profit was capped at Yen 359.2 billion (approximately Rs 24,950 crores). This is higher than the profit of Yen 300.1 billion (approximately Rs 20,834 crores) the company made in Q3 2019, thus ensuring a 20 percent jump in profits compared quarterly.

Sony PlayStation 4 sale details

Apart from the sales numbers of the PlayStation 5, the company also revealed that it managed to sell 1.4 million units of the last generation PlayStation 4, during the quarter. It also shared that there were increased in-game software sales, network services sales and higher profit margins on the PlayStation 4. However, at the same time, it lost revenue due to expenses related to the launch of the PlayStation 5.

Additionally, the report reveals that the company is incurring losses due to the strategic pricing of the PlayStation 5, which is said to be priced lower than its manufacturing cost.
