Sony shows profit because of Home?

142 replies 834 views Edited May 11, 2013

I saw yesterday in the news that Sony has just  showed a profit for the first time in five years.  Could this be because Home is raking in so much money?   What say you?

I'm very doubtful PlayStation Home has drastically affiliated Sony's profit that much, you have to remember they do "a lot" more than just home.

No, belt tightening & a weaker Yen made this happen, as did the sale of some building assets.

I don't think Home has that big an impact in Sony as a whole,

But in its defense - it doesn't lose money and a lot of small developers are starting to become successful...

 

When Indie developers were asked which was the best console to work for, most, if not all said Sony, because Sony reps were casual and relaxed, where as the other console was strict and intimidating and meddling.
