Sony forecasts $2.9 billion annual loss

Sony is forecasting a $2.9 billion annual loss, despite rising PlayStation 3 sales. The corporation suffered a $2.1 billion net loss between October and December alone, attributed to the strong yen, the economy, and a flood in Thailand that disrupted its television supply chain. It posted a revenue of $24 billion, down 17.4% year-over-year.

The consumer products and services division, of which PlayStation is one part, reported an operating loss of $1.1 billion. The PlayStation 3 sold 6.5 million units, an increase of 2.8 million over the previous quarter and 200,000 from the same period last year.

Careful examination of Doctor Who: The Eternity Clock's debut trailer using a sonic screwdriver leads one to conclusively conclude that it is some manner of sidey-widey runny-jumpy game.
