Actually The Xbox One (Just the Console) has made more Money for Microsoft than the Ps4 has for Sony. Because Sony Loses Money with every Ps4 Sold and Microsoft makes Money with every Xbox Sold.


Nice source there.


Do people have to provide sources for information that has been discussed to death for the last 7 months and is fairly well known though?

I thought it was commonly accepted now that Sony make a loss on hardware, although it becomes a profit if a game and a year of PS+ are bought alongside the PS4?

Do you ask for a source when someone tells you the sky is blue, or fire burns?


Yes, yes he does.

Sony makes a profit of about $50 per PS4 sold at this price range while Microsoft barely makes anything. Sony can continue to make profit on console sales up until they lower the price to 349.99

Check out that picture in the article, everyone is still laughing at it at that price.

Personally, I think $349 is the price needed to get people to buy because at $399 the PS4 is superior at playing games and multi-media. Once Microsoft fixes the buggy U.I. Then it can equal the PS4 on playing movies and netflix but will still lag behind on the games and games is what people buy consoles for.

Naughty naughty!

That isn't quite the WHOLE truth, now is it?

Care to toss up the ACTUAL numbers that it costs to produce an Xbox One and a PS4? If you were brave enough to do so, one could tell that the gain is extremely negligible, and is about to cease to exist with the arrival of the new $399 system.
