According to analyst Michael Pachter, Sony will make a $25 profit on each PlayStation4 console sold.
Thats amazing! 399$ and getting 25$ ! i bet X1 499$ they get 350$ profit! -.-
IT PRINTS MONEY! ;)
PS4: It only does win, wins. http://i1.kym-cdn.com/photo...
Pachter : “Sony really couldn't go lower than $399, they really couldn't go to $349″ I think they could with a 250gb HDD and throwing out the HDMI cable and mic.
250 GB? What is this, 2007?
as a lower option if push comes to shove.
The price difference between 250gb & 500gb hdd's is minimal. I would have loved to see a 1TB model for €499. The fact they're making a profit on this system at launch is very nice for them, a complete turnaround from the disaster PS3 launch price which was an incredible €629 here in Ireland.
In saudi we had it for around 1000-1100 $ -.- im getting anxious about the PS4`s price when it comes out here! hope its 399$ not 1100-1500$ and they give us this excuse ( we payed for shipment, and we give you 1 year warranty ) then that should atleast make the console 499$ atleast . guess how much i bought my wii u deluxe for! 640$!
@WilliamH yes but along with the cable+mic and the $25 profit they can manage to cut $50 and still break even.
OH REALLY!? That's a lot of $25 dollars...
so lets say they will sell between 7M - 13M PS4s at launch that means they will get 175M - 325M on day one! imagine all of them getting PS Plus! way more! its like all the money they paid for Gaikai is back!
that's better then losing 200 on every system sold like they did with the ps3.
That's pretty impressive, considering they were still losing money even with the $599 PS3 price.
I think $25 is too much, especially for a system with 8GB of GDDR5 selling for only $400. But I think the GDDR5 is supplied to them by AMD and since they are using an AMD CPU and GPU too then maybe they came up with some kind of deal or something... I don't know.
lol Dude shut the fuck up
Wow, Sony is going to rebound as soon as this thing launches.
Patcher also stated 3 weeks ago that it cost 269 to make a Xbox one the rape continues people open your eyes Microsoft is phasing out games on a games console.
Yeah, he also said at one point that PS4 could launch at $250 and Xbone $299. I think his idea is that if he just gives out random numbers when interviewed, he's bound to get it right at least once.
I don't know why people pay attention to Pachter. The week before E3, he said PS4 would be $350 and XB1 $400. Then he called PS4's $400 price "genius." Awesome for Sony if true, but I'm not exactly putting stock into what this guy says.
