PSP Sales Dip, PlayStation Brand Rakes in the Cash

Sony stated that NGP is still on course for launch this year during its Japanese earnings briefing earlier today. I guess we'll find out where and when during E3.

Sony sold 8 million PSPs last year (down a couple of million, but still not bad for a gadget approaching end of life), helping the PlayStation division to a £270/$435 million profit but sales got only a slight increase at ¥1,572 billion (£11.7 billion/$19.2 billion).

It expects to sell another 6 million this year, helped by new bundles. Sony sold 46.6 million PSP games, which was up on last year's 44.4 million, the figures will be damaged by an estimated £106 million cost due to the PSN outage and subsequent restoration/restitution. There was no breakdown between PSP/PSPGo but, frankly, it won't make much difference
