Sony Quadruples Forecast loss for Financial year, Despite PlayStation’s Profitability

sony-logo

The PlayStation brand has been very profitable with the PS4’s sales, however, that is not covering the massive losses occurring in other sectors of Sony’s business. According to the gaming site KitGuru, Sony is quadrupling their forecast lost for the financial year ending on March 31st, 2015. Sony’s financial issues have been well documented, but it seems like things are going to get worse.

During Sony’s last financial meeting on March 31st, 2014, Sony reported a loss of over £750 million and stated they projected losing another £285 million for the current financial year. But now, that forecast has risen dramatically. Sony is now forecasting a loss £1.04 billion between now and the 31st of March 2015. More details can be found on KitGuru.
