Great hardware numbers and mtx/DLC numbers

- I don't know if they are selling the consoles at profit yet, cause that operating income dropped.
- MTX/DLC increased by 10% instead of decreasing by 20% looking at the previous quarter so that's led to a 4% increase. Anyone has any ideas on that game that what that is happening there?

Operating profits down from last year.

Gaming Operating Profit : ¥82.7bn / $0.751B (-21.2% YoY from ¥104.9bn / $0.988B - Q2 FY20)

Hoping for them to recover soon.
Sony had already forecasted lower income for this fiscal year.

Oh and it seem like you have conveniently forgotten about a large chunk of TLOU II and GoT sales being present for this quarter last year from PlayStation Studios.

Didn't Sony say they wanted to sell 22 million ps5s by end of financial year? If so they are gonna have to produce a hell of alot of ps5s if they want to get close to that.

We’ll at least we know where a lot of that TSMC manufacturing is going. Sony is killing it in hardware sales.
they must have secured some serious wafer allocation. Absolutely amazing performance on the hardware side. I don’t even understand the rest of it to totally get why they are seeing such a drop in other areas, I imagine it’s down to selling the ps5 at a loss?

Those software sales seem abysmal low for last of us 2 and ps5 exclusives not including PS4 am i reading those right?

4mill for last of us 2 so far?
0.56 for returnal
1.1 mill for ratchet? Out of 10 to 13 million consoles?

I thought exclusives and games in general sold really we’ll the first year when the line up is tighter and not as broad as the later years. Early adopters normally want to purchase a lot of games For their hardware?

appreciate I might be looking at the data wrong?

oh wait ignore me, they only seem to be reporting some data for games. Why would they only report 3 days of sales data for last of us 2 when it’s been out for over a year?

thinking about it, it’s pretty obvious it’s not performed to how Sony expected it to. there can’t be any other reason To not share the data.
I think the last column shows the says number days since release, so I think sales achieved in those days. Don't know why they just don't give current sales.
Yeah it's an odd choice.
For example: The Last of Us is one of the best-selling PlayStation 3 games, and Remastered is among the best-selling PlayStation 4 games.[126] By August 2014, the game had sold eight million copies: seven million on PlayStation 3 and one million on PlayStation 4.

And now it's been a good year+ over. I can only assume it did not have any legs.

God of War wasnt updated till 3 years later too. Wouldnt read too much into things, seems like they just randomly update it.

Well we didn't know God of War 2018 did over 19 million until recent, the last number Sony shared before that was the 3 million it did within its 1st 3 days of release
I think they would have shared the one month figure aka 5m as well cause its there in the supplementary information but yeah, Sony releases sell through numbers when it hits a milestone or needs a marketing point

God of War also updated within the following year according to Wiki:
The game sold over 3.1 million copies worldwide within three days of its release, making it the fastest-selling PlayStation 4 exclusive at the time.[121] In total, the game sold over five million copies in its first month, with 2.1 million in digital sales.[123][124] By May 2019, the game had sold over 10 million copies worldwide, making it the best-selling game in the series.

Not true. They never shared God of War data either until last month, and it was sitting at almost 20 million copies on PS4 alone. For all we know, TLOU 2 has already crossed 10 million. We know it outsold Ghost of Tsushima in my many markets, including NA.
