Sony is on fire!! congratulations!!
Except for that damn TV division it's really holding the company back, i wish they can start making money off it.

pedrof931117d ago

The last guardian...... awakening..... release date confirmed

This article is adding ps2 when the report clearly states "ps4 and ps3". We also know ps2 haven't been in production since January 2013.

Darkstares1117d ago

That is good news, the better situation they are in the better they can support their products.

chrismichaels041117d ago

Its great to see the Playstation brand doing so well and becoming one of Sonys most successful products currently on the market today.

Have a tissue, Axios2. Sony made a profit this quarter (thanks to the ps4) and there's nothing you can do about it but let it all out.

@muerte2494

I'll save you the bother of reading the article again and just copy-paste this tidbit for you

"and some leftover PS2 combined"

Yes production stopped, doesn't mean you still can't find unsold units in stores that still sell em, so the title is right in including ps2, though it also should have included vita and psp in the title, to be fair.

SilentNegotiator1117d ago

"@Silenttroll, so how many tissue do you require for the 6.5 billion MS just reported?"

Why, when have I ever tried to downplay Xbox using Microsoft's financial stats and then tried to downplay a profiting quarter using the wrong figure and mentioning a previous loss?

GTgamer1117d ago (Edited 1117d ago )

@Axios
Dude your on every Sony profiting off PS4 article saying the same thing well guess what Playstation is doing great and dominating the Xbox Devision and that makes you mad so you bring Sony's financial situation congratulations you've been promoted to butthurt (^~^).

"@Silenttroll, so how many tissue do you require for the 6.5 billion MS just reported?"

1.A troll calling someone else a troll is sad
2.Neither of us get to see any of that money so why the hell would we care about it ಠ_ಠ

Muerte24941117d ago

@ Christian Hour

Maybe you should read the actual quarterly report.

look beside the little Astrix and you'll see *PS4 and PS3 systems. Sorry but it doesn't mention ps2 at all. It makes sense because report numbers based on their shipments. They stopped shipping PS2s back in January 2013.

@axios

Xbox as a brand has never turned a dime of profit. Xbox lost 4 billion. Xbox 360 another billion lost to RROD. All of the profits 360 made from Live and game sales were not enough to erase that 5 billion dollars worth of red ink. Xbox One also selling poorly now, so no chance to pay down that debt.

SCE may have erased PS1 and PS2 profit with PS3's mistakes, but they are well on their way back to being a profitable console brand.

UltraNova1116d ago

@Axios2

Common dude control yourself seriously...

As frosty already covered if I where to compare all the money spent/made by MS and Sony on consoles (excluding the ps1 since xbox wasnt around) Sony would be on top by quite a margin.

Pointless trolling yet again.

OT: Good for us Sony is finally making money... now there's no excuse to hold back on new IP's and top quality Morpheus specs at an affordable price!(hope dies last).

It's only the prices holding the Tv division back....They literally FACT make the best ever single consumer rating site rates Sony TVs #1, highest quality Tvs but they over charge for them..They just need to work on lowering the price while keeping that awesome quality

Hk85karlsson1117d ago

Have it ever occurred to you that if you make the best tv, maybe it will be one of the most expensive in its respective area?

Input lag, that´s where Sony is killing it.

PQ (picture quality), here´s plasma still the best. Unless you spend a ridicolous amount of money.

majiebeast1117d ago

Well some good news. Panasonic and Sony are teaming in the development of OLED panels. Which could cut atleast some of the R&D cost.

Why o why1117d ago

Trust me.. pioneer kuros were top of the range but too expensive for those who saw cheaper samsungs as comparable, but cheaper panels. Sometimes quality kills.

R.i.p pioneer tvs.......I still own 2

90Supra1117d ago

you get what you pay for...

Muerte24941117d ago

Panasonic and Sharp acquired most of Pioneer Kuro patents. Sharp elite came the closest to recreating the Kuro black levels. Oled surpasses the old kuroshjtsuji technology without losing its brightness. Unfortunately, oleds are expensive to produce.

purp13m0nk3y1117d ago

I will only ever buy a SONY Tv. The latest, a 50" W800B is crazy value for money when you take into account features and overall performance.

IQ with my PS4 is eye wateringly good ;-)

Congratulations to SONY for turning it around.

It's good for gaming that Sony's and Microsoft's gaming divisions posted profits. Too bad about Nintendo's gaming division.

Magicite1117d ago (Edited 1117d ago )

PS2 is actually still selling? Damn!!!

Gratz to Sony on making profit, I hope they realise that their gaming division is one of strongest assets and gonna invest even more.

Priceless = http://www.neogaf.com/forum...

Both Sony and MS posting profits, meanwhile Nintendo again at loss.

GameSpawn1116d ago

I'm glad someone else noticed. Way the hell is the PS2 still on the reports when it was "discontinued" and "end of life" already unless there are still units selling somewhere in the world?

It's shocking really.

Menkyo1117d ago

They spun the tv divison off. That was a big part of the red that was reported last year. The restructuring is almost done and you'll soon see Sony back in black.

C-H-E-F1117d ago

Yeah and they need to bring the Z2 (smartphone) over to Verizon I want it soo bad, but I'm a Verizon man... I refuse to get poor service for a freaking phone. lOl

reaperofsouls1117d ago

Sony must be pushing the 10 million mark now

telekineticmantis1117d ago

Now imagine if PS Now works on their phones on 4G(or 5G whenever that arrives), thatll be killer, they should make phones specifically for it, with slide out controls, kinda like WHAT I WAS SAYING THE VITA SHOULD OF BEEN, SINCE YOULL CUSTOMERS ARE MOSTLY MATURE ADULTS, who dont want to look kiddie on the train.
Heck they could call it the Xperia psv, if they want

spektical1117d ago

well their tv line while good, is still overpriced. Its basically on the same road as the VAIO line. With competitors like vizio who aggressivaly price their tvs, its no wonder SONY tvs are struggling at their current prices.

Muzikguy1117d ago (Edited 1117d ago )

Go buy a Sony TV lol jk

Really good news.
