Sony released their financials today, providing sales figures of their videogame hardware. Combined, the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2 sold 16.5 million units during the company’s fiscal year ended March 31st, 2013.


Sony forecast that they would sell 16 million units of the two devices, meaning that they’ve exceeded their goal slightly.


Meanwhile, the PSP and PlayStation Vita combined sold 7 million units during the fiscal year, meeting Sony’s revised goals for those devices as well. Sony revised their PSP/Vita forecast thrice, down from the initial 16 million to 7 million.
