Diomedes1976 said: I dont think Sony is losing money on each console sold ....to be brutally clear the reports that have hinted for a 800 dolar cost for each PS3 are work of people without a glimpse of knowledge in economics .You can add up the cost of teh components as they would cost you in the store as much as you want ,but the reality is that for the manufacturer of those components the cost isnt so high .....I mean a BD reader can cost you 150-200 dollar but it is bordering in insane to assume Sony ,manufacturer of BD readers ,spends 150-200 dollar for each BD reader included in a Playstation 3 ....
Actually yes, Sony is losing money on each PS3 sold. link
