Sony Corp swung on Thursday to a quarterly operating profit as strong videogame sales helped to offset a fall in smartphone sales and as the year-ago quarter had seen a big impairment charge.

Sony’s operating profit for July-September came to 88 billion yen ($729 million), slightly above the 87.3 billion yen average estimate of nine analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters. In the same quarter last year, it booked a loss of 85.6 billion yen.
