Good to hear for them. I wonder if this allows them to counter with a price drop if they feel the need to against XB1 kinectless bundle.

Septic1609d ago

They don't need to do anything of the sort at this stage.

georgeenoob1609d ago

Good luck to them. Hopefully they are able to get themselves out of this bad situation.

Well if anything can get Sony out of a 'bad situation' its the PlayStation brand.

- PS4 is profitable on hardware alone, that is a big surprise, this gives Sony room to cut price anytime.

- 50% of PS4 owners subscribe to PSN+, if this rate keeps up it will give Sony a stable 1 billion dollar revenue once the install base is 40 million.

- Sony expect the PS4 to be more profitable than the PS2.

Good news!
PS4 is almost literally the opposite of the PS3 for Sony.

And I loved my ps3. Tells you how I feel about my ps4. I really love it. Gotta watch how you say things around here. Think my quote was misunderstood.

US8F1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

ps3 opposite of ps4 + I loved my ps3 = I hate my ps4. The only meaning to your quote really. Nothing wrong with what you said, its an opinion that people might agree or disagree with. I personally agreed with you only because there are no games that appeal to me on the ps4 or xbox one yet. Eventually though, we'll see this E3

OT:Its about time Sony got rid of those departments that are making them lose lots of money. I will be very happy when they go back on track on making massive profits year in year out

NatureOfLogic_1609d ago

I understood you perfectly fine. This is how you feel about PS4.....

choujij1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )


I lol'd.

UltraNova1608d ago (Edited 1608d ago )

I feel I will never stop loving my ps3...dont know... the thing went through so many storms I just feel that simply the fact it overcame everything thrown at it and still surpassed in every way its main rival puts it in a special place in my heart.

As for the ps4 I still love it but it made things so easy its embarrassing...

Good comment, Kai

The PS4 will be profitable, and gain back their revenues!

HomerDog1609d ago

sadly the other Sony divisions aren't doing so great. PlayStation alone won't keep them alive. they have to do something else maybe make affordable tvs and cellphones

xxBiG_BoSSxx1609d ago

actually, I think most of their divisions are doing well or ok. They have a lot you know. Its just a few of their electronics divisions that are doing poorly.

KinjoTakemura1609d ago

The sales of the machine itself and the sale of indie titles has no doubt contributed to the PS4's profit margins.

torchic1609d ago

mandatory PS+ as well. Sony must be thinking why they didn't do it sooner lol

joeorc1609d ago


that is not 100% completely true at all.

"mandatory PS+"

Again PS+ is not "mandatory"

Because there are still free 2 play online multi-player options on the PS4 without the need of having PS+.

The incentive to sign up for PS+ is there, but it is again not "mandatory"

this is indeed a fact! you can stiil play online multi-player gaming on the PS4 WITHOUT ps+ SO YES IT IS NOT "mandatory"

torchic1609d ago

geeees you guys it's mandatory for MP that's what I meant I know you can play MMOs without it!

ahahaha I saw those reactions coming though won't lie :)

Silly gameAr1609d ago (Edited 1609d ago )

Well, Sony themselves did say that they were counting on PSplus on PS4 for to make some profit for the system.
