Sony still losing $37 per PS3 sold

Posted on Monday, December 14 2009 @ 22:19:26 CET by

Kotaku reports Sony is still not in the green with its PlayStation 3 console. According to a report by iSuppli, the Japanese electronics giant records a loss of about $37 for every console sold.
According to a report on iSuppli - who have been doing this kind of thing for a while now - the total cost of manufacturing a PS3 Slim as of December 2009 is $336.27. And they sell for $299. Meaning Sony are still slugged with a $37 loss for every console sold.

Sounds bad - and when you multiply that $37 by millions, it certainly seems that way - but it's a damn sight less money than they were losing this time last year.

With the cost of materials continually on the decline, provided Sony can stick at a $299 price point for a while to come, you'd expect the PS3 to start generating a profit sometime next year.
