CrunchArcade: Speculation suggests Sony may be losing $260 per PS3: No price cut for you then


The Guardian speculates that Sony could be losing as much as $260 per PS3 sold, significantly higher than the $130 per PS3 to which Sony recently admitted. Care? Maybe you should.

If Sony continues to lose that much per system sold—either $130 or $260 or some other out-of-thin-air estimate—what are the odds that it’ll lower the price?

Right now, the cheapest PS3, the 40GB SKU, costs $400. Should the above numbers hold, you’re probably looking at that $400 price tag for still some time.

Again, this is all wild, “let me crunch the numbers because I have an hour to kill before I leave the office” speculation, so tread lightly.
