The PlayStation Portal announcement occurs in an economically unfriendly context for the Japanese multinational. In the first days of August the shares plummeted to about 7% after the fall in profits in their first fiscal quarter.

Already its financial report from April to June showed negative balances with a cut of 16.7% between the months of April and June, a reduction that the company attributed to worse profitability in its financial and film branches.

Some analysts pointed out that investors would also be concerned about the performance of the multinational’s video game area, the one with the greatest weight in their accounts, given lower-than-expected sales of its PlayStation 5 (PS5) console and the expected launch delays of games for the platform.

Sony said achieving its goals around the console, which is having a slower-than-expected pace to market, is one of its “highest priorities.”

Between April and June, 3.3 million PS5s were sold and Sony set out to achieve the goal of 25 million for the entire year.
