PS4 Pro gross sales “are stronger than that of PS4 Slim,” says Sony CFO

Sony has touched on how PS4 Pro gross sales have been going to date, when in comparison with PS4 Slim.


Sony launched its monetary outcomes for the third quarter ending December 31, 2016 yesterday. In a briefing following the report, CFO Kenichiro Yoshida revealed a bit extra concerning the efficiency of PS4 Pro, Slim, and PSVR.

“PS4 Pro is running as we had expected, as we assumed, but Pro maybe is doing more than we anticipated,” Yoshida instructed buyers (through DualShockers).

Part of the explanation why PS4 Pro gross sales have been good is that gamers are getting the console alongside PlayStation VR. PS4 Pro presents a bonus when working VR video games throughout the board because of its enhance in energy, so it’s not arduous to see why.

PlayStation VR itself is promoting “in-line with expectations,” in accordance with Yoshida, however no arduous knowledge was offered.

Finally, the CFO made a quote on the call that’s a bit arduous to interpret. He stated, “The sales of Pro are stronger than that of Slim, as we see it.”

What he meant by that is unclear right here. Some took the extra apparent that means, suggesting that the dearer PS4 Pro has offered extra models than the cheaper PS4 Slim, which might be just a little out of the atypical.

What Yoshida seemingly meant to say was that in comparison with the corporate’s forecasts, PS4 Pro comes out on high, beating Sony’s expectations, one thing PS4 Slim presumably hasn’t been in a position to do – not the general gross sales of the Slim.

The name was translated reside, which in all probability meant one thing was misplaced in translation.
