via BBC News – PlayStation 4: Expert views on Sony’s games console reveal.

Its Computer Entertainment division accounts for 11% of Sony’s sales, while 56% of the firm’s profits – disregarding the parts that make losses – come from selling life insurance, consumer loans and financial products in Japan.
