Sony will beat its consolidated operating profit projections this year, the company has revealed, largely thanks to the success of PlayStation 2. PlayStation 2 and PSone hardware shipments in fiscal year 2001 amounted to some 20.14 million and 8.25 million euros profit respectively, while software shipments amassed 135.77 million and 101.46 million euros. Sony projects shipments of PS2 units worldwide for the fiscal year (April 2002 to March 2003) of 20 million (1.67 million per month), according to a report on Bloomberg.
