Bottom line: Sony’s 1st-quarter financials are about what 1 would count on with the business about to head into its maiden voyage in subsequent-generation waters. PlayStation four sales have been down, games sales and PlayStation Plus subscriptions have been up, and digital game sales beat brick-and-mortar 74 % to 26 %, respectively. Companywide sales and operating revenue are up by two % year-on-year.
On Monday, Sony published its Q1 final results for the 2020 fiscal year (April 1 – June 30). It appears fairly fantastic general for the business with consolidated sales and operating revenue reaching almost two trillion yen ($19 billion US). That is a two-% uptick year-on-year.
