Ok, lets give this a try.

For some reason there's a significant difference between the Sony figures I pulled from the annual reports and the ones in this thread (Around $1bn profit since 1998). Not sure where the original creator of that data got his numbers from though so I can't work out how it happened. Seems mostly to be because of the first few years (1998 - 2000)

Data / Sources below... feel free to tell me I've got it all wrong if I've screwed it up somehow. Everything can be fact checked using the links provided.
