The success of PS4 – and the yen’s exchange rate – have helped Sony to a decent Q3.

The console shifted 6.4m units in the month ending December 31st, up from 4.5m units in the same quarter the year before. Portable hardware sales fell from 2m to 1.4m units, however, while software sales climbed from ¥128bn in Q3 2013 to ¥147bn.

Network sales doubled year-on-year to ¥100bn.

The company has upped its console sales forecast for the full year from 17m units to 17.5m, while it still expects to shift 3.5m portable consoles in the period. Software sales are now forecast to reach ¥420bn, up from the previously forecast ¥390bn.
