Sony expects $1.68bn loss

Sony has revised its earnings forecast for the fiscal year ending March 31st.

The firm is now expecting a net income loss of 150 billion YEN ($1.68 billion), with an operating income loss of 260 billion YEN ($3 billion), which is more than the $1.1 billion loss predicted earlier in the month.

The firm’s PlayStation business is also set to reveal a loss of $338 million, with the weakening YEN and lower-than-expected games sales highlighted as the key factors.

In March 2008, Sony posted a profit of 369 billion YEN.
