This is something I was wondering about. With one game or one memory card sold, does the Vita make a profit? Or does it take more?

I think there needs to be however many sales that would prompt retailers to ask for more shipments, but I could be mistaken.

A profit for Sony? No one on this board knows anything about that.

No one knows the store cut on the Vita or memory cards so it's hard to say.

This. I doubt you'd get reliable info about that from someone on this website.

I read in some tech magazine about 6 months ago that it costs 171.04 to make and ship a Vita.

Thanks everyone and also appreciate the links. I actually thought it would cost more to make, wow.

Keep in mind that they still need to pay off R&D and marketing costs, so even if they sold the system at a profit it wouldn't really earn them much if anything as a whole.

Sony believing in profit?

Last I heard they were bringing Epic Mickey 2 to the Vita...
