show profits of 25.7 billion yen ($295.2 million) for the quarter spanning April through June, which is way up from the 37.1 billion yen ($426.7 million) loss posted this time last year. Overall earnings hit 1.66 trillion yen ($190.9 billion), which is up from 1.56 trillion yen ($179.4 billion) for the year prior. A good part of this rise can be attributed to Sony's Networked Product and Services Division (of which Sony Computer Entertainment is a part), as this portion of the company saw sales increase 32.4% in a year-over-year comparison. The division still suffered a loss of 3.8 billion yen ($43 million), but that's still an improvement of 32.9 billion yen ($378.5 million) in the year-over-year analysis. Sony blames this latest loss on "poor exchange rates due to a strong yen."
And yes, Sony did indeed hit their goal of selling 13 million PS3s during the financial year that ended on March 31. The next prediction? 15 million for the current fiscal year. At the same time, they are predicting falling sales for both the PSP and PS2, which probably isn't surprising.
