Hey Xbox Fanboys, PS3 STILL Costs Sony for Each Unit Sold
It might not be the kind of news that you guys all find interesting, but I was reading an article yesterday and that featured a breakdown of the costs of producing a PS3 console and how the price for each PS3 sold during it’s lifetime has cost the company a different amount with each SKU that is released to the mass-market. The first PlayStation 3s to hit the market cost the company a whopping $90 dollars for each one sold.
Now it seems that they’ve slashed that number by about 80% to only $18. They even think that by 2011, they’ll actually be able to turn a profit on their hardware. By that time, I’m certain we’ll be right in the middle of speculating on what the new Xbox will be. This bodes to be a interesting year to be a gamer.
