Hey guys, did you ever want to know how much it costs Sony to make a PS3? I certainly have! Thanks to iSuppli Corp, they have provided us with a nice concise chart and break down of major costs that it takes to manufacture a PS3.
As you can see the major costs are the Blu-ray drive, HDD, Cell Chip/Nvida Components, and “Other components.” I think its extremly interesting to see the cost of some of this stuff and how far it must of come down from the beginning! The Blu-Ray drive is only $66 and the Cell Processor is only &38! I think thats crazy! However, the most important thing to take away from this chart is that the PS3 still costs over $299 to make. That means that Sony is still losing $30+ on manufacturing the PS3! so when will the PS3 break even? I would say that Sony has come a long way when they were losing over $100 per ps3 sold. So i would imagin that with this next year Sony should be breaking even with the PS3. What do you all think about this one?
