And the PS3 didn't do too badly either.
Sony has released its financials for the three months covering July to September, revealing it shipped 3.3 million PlayStation 4 consoles during the period.
This combined with over 800,000 PS3 consoles being sold in the same period helped the company's game division revenues to rise 84 percent year-on-year.
Unfortunately, it's not all good news. The handheld division (comprising combined sales of Vitas, PSPs and PlayStation TVs) just hit the 700,000 mark, which is 100,000 down on the same period last year.
Despite the games division's ¥309.5 billion ($2.77 billion) revenue, an 83 percent rise on last year's ¥4.2 billion operating loss, and the fact this was converted into a ¥21.8 billion operating profit ($195.5 million), the company as a whole fared less well.
Sony made a loss of ¥136 billion ($1.22 billion) for the quarter and predicts net losses of ¥230 billion for the end of the financial year, even though the game division looks set to rake in an additional ¥50 billion in revenue compared to earlier estimates.
