Sony has already managed to reduce the manufacturing costs associated with PS4 hardware, the company has revealed.

The cuts have allowed Sony to revise its financial expectations, increasing its projected FY2015 operating income for its Games & Network Services division from 20bn yen to 25bn yen.

"Sales are expected to be higher than the May forecast primarily due to the strong performance of the PS4," Sony said in its latest earnings report. "Operating income is expected to be higher than the May forecast primarily due to PS4 hardware cost reductions."

The reduced costs suggest Sony could be better placed to cut the price of PS4 at an earlier point in its life-cycle - or continue to reap improved profits from ongoing sales.

PS4 sales stood at 7 million in April although Sony has failed to provide an update since. PS3 and PS4 sold a combined 3.4m units between April-June 2014, however, of which the vast majority are expected to be PS4.

What the hell are you blabbing on about in regards to the auction? You do understand that Sony had no hand in that and a separate company is responsible for that? Stop being an anti-gay troll.

Will they lower the price of PS4? I doubt it. I've lost faith in Sony. I don't trust their arrogance. As far as the newly announced EA Access, Sony said it did not accept the EA Access program because it felt it did not bring "good value". That is bull! The PS Now is a freaking joke!!! With EA Access you pay 5 dollars a month and you have access to a bunch of games for unlimited time during that month. On the other hand with the PS Now you pay 5 dollars and you can only play ONE GAME for 4 HOURS!!!! What a freaking joke!!!!

Then... Sony made this announcement:

It's really just the "perfect storm" of circumstances for Sony's return to the top. They did alot of things right & with a little luck & Microsofts' huge missteps they have regained the throne in a huge way. The PS4 has a bright future ahead!

Amazing to reduce costs within 9 months. Sure a good demand has helped to develop production lines.
