Sony has announced that PlayStation hardware sales declined year-on-year in its second financial quarter ending September 30, but software sales increased substantially.

Combined sales of the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 came in at two million units, down compared to the 3.5 million recorded in the same quarter last fiscal year. Combined PSP and PlayStation Vita sales also declined during the same period from 1.6 million units to 800,000. However, on the positive side, PlayStation software sales across all platforms increased from 60 million units a year earlier to 93 million.

Sony’s games arm reported a small operating loss of $8 million, due to the Vita’s price cut and unfavorable exchange rates, according to the company.

The PlayStation 4 is set to release November 15 in North America and November 29 in Europe.
