Sony just put up some numbers that reflect the cost-cutting activity happening at the corporate mega-level, high above the heads of the PlayStation Group.
The report states that, compared to last year, the games division is down 32% in revenue. Sales of hardware fell for each of their primary platforms. PS3 dropped 440,000 units. The PSP lost 680,000 units by selling just over 5 million. Even the PS2 took a big hit, selling just 2.52 million units.
We can expect that Sony would be in a little bit of a slump, given the current fiscal climate, but it’s likely that their pricing schedules have started to turn off consumers. Hopefully, Sony can take the hint that their fans would appreciate a slashing of prices.
