Wasn't the BOM based on consumer cost not on manufacturer cost or mass production costs?!
Also, not sure how they will struggle and MS hasn't with the X series as they should cost similar. The IO set up isn't licensed and made of regular parts. The design cost mostly sits with R&D. The GPU is cheaper as is the cost of the SSD. Surely the controller alone won't make up the difference in price.
I still believe the ps5 is cheaper to produce than the series x. But I'll be happy to pay up to £500 for it.
Looks like the waiting game is finally coming to an end people. We will finally have full prices soon lol
