The gaming segment as a whole, which encompasses digital and physical sales, add-ons, DLC and hardware came in ¥96 billion ($878 million), down from ¥454 billion ($4.2 billion) in July due to soft hardware sales.

Elsewhere in the report, it noted PlayStation Plus subscribers are sitting at 36.9 million, which while an uptick, is rather flat compared to 36.2 million reported during Q1.
