Sony has revealed it’s recent quarterly sales, which show that Sony’s Game Department has seen a loss of 3.5 Billion Yen (Roughly AUD$42.5 Million).

This year saw the release of Sony’s second major handheld console, PlayStation Vita. The device has not been fairing too well in the markets, and the reason for this may possibly be related to the small range of software available for the console. Sony has also lowered the sale prediction for the PlayStation Vita and PSP from 16 million units, down to 12 million.

On top of this, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PSP have all seen steep drops in sale numbers. This seems to be an expected change, as a new console generation is just on the horizon.
