Sony Corp. disclosed a 26.3% increase in first-quarter operating profit, owing to continued pandemic-related demand for their PS5 gaming system.

Sony increased its profit estimate for the fiscal year ending March 2022 to 980 billion yen, up from 930 billion yen previously. The median approximation of 25 analysts was around 1 billion yen, which was lower than the forecast.

High Demand for PS5

Since many gamers remain at their residences, Sony has profited immensely from significant demand for its PS5 gaming system; even if it is unable to ramp up production due to a semiconductor scarcity. By motivating digital copy downloads and membership service, Sony considers the game console as a platform to interact its classic consumer electronic devices with its expanding content industry.

Sony announced in May that it will devote 2 trillion yen on strategic assets within the next 3 years, such as a movement to increase subscriptions to its gaming and entertainment networks, it suggested that it will keep expanding its content business via acquisition.
