Nielsen, the purveyor of all things statistical and demographic, published a new study this week on game console usage within the US. According to the report, released on Wednesday, gamers this year spent notably more time streaming video to their consoles than they did in 2010, due in large part to the growing availability of services like Netflix, Hulu, MLB Network and ESPN3. Xbox 360 users spent 14 percent of their console time streaming video this year (compared with ten percent last year), PlayStation 3 owners devoted 15 percent (nine percent in 2010), and Nintendo Wii users spent a whopping 33 percent — a 13 percent increase over last year’s study. Each console, moreover, seems to appeal to different functions. Xbox 360 users, for example, devoted 34 percent of their time to online gaming, Wii owners spent 55 percent of their console time on offline gaming, and the PS3 was the device of choice for DVD and Blu-Ray viewing, comprising 22 percent of usage. Overall, Nielsen found that usage increased by seven percent over the last year across all three platforms, which suggests that streaming may be keeping us glued to our consoles for even longer.

Sony is a company famous for its consumer electronics like flat screen tvs, computers, and the PlayStation. But, incredibly, that’s not how it makes money. 

Dan Frommer of SplatF points out the company loses hundreds of millions from consumer electronics. It actually makes money from its “financial services” division, which is made up of insurance and banking services.

Below is a breakdown of the operating income for each of its divisions in the most recent quarter.
