PlayStation 3 profitability has driven record revenues for Sony in its quarter ending December 31, with net income rising 25 percent to 200.2 billion yen over the same period in the previous year. The company has now raised its full-year forecast 3 percent to 340 billion yen.
The news will delight PS3-loving industry-watchers, as the machine now appears to be solidly placed and advancing into a period that will see price cuts and major releases for 2008 in the form of GTA IV, GT5, FFXIII (maybe), Killzone 2 (maybe) and MGS4.

Analysts are expecting EA to come close to guidance for its third quarter when the company announces figures tomorrow, showing around 90 cents profit per share, slightly down from the 95 cents the company upgraded to from 75 cents in November. Sales of $1.74 billion are expected.
Caution, however, is advised.
“The current market environment can be particularly violent on high multiple stocks performing ‘only’ in-line with expectations and any conservative tone from management on future performance can be particularly damaging,” said Janco analyst Mike Hickey in a note to investors.
