Sony has cut its loss forecast by 26% after a weaker yen boosted sales of its Playstation 4 and imaging equipment.

The Japanese tech giant said it expects to make a loss of 170bn yen ($1.4bn; £954m) in the fiscal year to March, down from 230bn yen. Annual sales are expected to reach 8tn yen, up from initial forecasts of 7.8tn yen.

These are provisional results however. Sony was due to submit full results for the final three months of 2014, but delayed it until March as a result of the massive cyber attack is suffered at Christmas.

The company did said that the cyber attack is unlikely to have any significant impact on its full results.
