PS3 Worldwide sales show impressive growth

Sony has revealed the results for its PlayStation division for the year ending  31st March 2011 and its looking quite good.

According to the information provided, 14.3 million PS3s were sold during the last 12 months, taking the global PS3 tally to 50 million, which is just behind Microsoft’s total of 53.6 million.

The PSP meanwhile sold 8 million units, while the PS2 is still doing ok with 6.4 million units.

Most impressive of all is the software sales, with almost 150 million units sold for PS3, while PSP sold 46.6 million and PS2 software sales came in at 14.6 million.

What does all this mean for Sony? A £266.9 million operating profit for the Networked Products and Services division.

Sony as a unit reported a £192.6 million loss due to the effects of the earthquake and tsunami that ravaged Japan.

Thanks, Eurogamer.
