Cost to manufacture a PS3 is down about 70%

by: John -
Good news for Sony folks. It seems the cost to make a PlayStation 3 is now down to about 70% of what it was originally. When the console first came out it was costing a whopping $800 to churn out each one so you know they were taking a heavy loss at launch time. Now 70% equates to around $240 so that's a much more manageable number. Sony still needs to drop the price some though to get some more selling as well as having the economy turn around a bit but at least they can make them for less t han a price of a Wii now.
