PS3 Blu-ray diode only 8$ to produce by June

As this little blu-ray diode was the cause of PS3's delay, Sony should be proud of their accomplishment since this month it can now be massively produced and by June the cost will drop to 900 Yen or less than 8$US. Cost cutting is the key to make money fast out the PLAYSTATION3.

$600 and now $592...still to d^mn high with nothing to show for it.

you don't own a PS3 because it just hit me that you're not intellectual enough to use it. i'm guessing you'll not even be able to switch it on. i think 360 is the right machine for you. it lights up those 3 red lights as a hint so that baboons like you can understand that the console cannot be used.

go back into the womb!

read the post properly. the 8 usd refers to the new price not to the drop in price.

Give him a break. There were a whole 4 lines to read. You cant expect a troll to read that much before making his comment.

ah yes.. the public school system rears its ugly head.. its ok assass.. not everyone can do 5th grade math. They have dropped to 1/5 of their normal price, from 5000 yen to 1000 yen.. so originally they were 40 dollars each to produce. So that would be 600 to 568 dollars.. cmon now everyone.. say it with me.. Math is your friend. An education is a good thing.

PS3 production costs just keep falling.

Saint Sony4254d ago

Hmm.. but can we assume ps3 price will drop? Wouldn't that eat some of the profit that cheaper diode gives?

masterg4254d ago (Edited 4254d ago )

Yeah it would. But Im sure they will drop around October anyway.
In the PS2 days they didnt drop price the first 1½ or so, but at that time they were the leaders on the marked.
$100 by Oct-Nov is my guess.

Better to eat the loss on the console and reap the benefits of more games sold.

They had so many problems producing them damn things now they drop in price by all most 90%....weird
