Then just make it 449$ at launch?
Do remind there's a 10-20% retailer's share on top of it plus shipping costs. It would need to be closer to $599 to break even at launch.
But then again, Sony was eating up a $40 or so loss with the PS4 back in 2013-2014, so yeah.
Edit - also add a small but not insignificant $10-15 for the manufacturing/labor costs.Last edited by haxxiy - on 14 February 2020
