PS3 Launch Costs Rising

In an attempt to bolster confidence in PS3, Sony has assured investors that the firm will recoup its investment in the console just as quickly as it managed with PS2. But it said pre-launch costs are rising. (Industry, PS3)

makes me think... delaystation3!
"Analysts were told that some PS3 microchip costs are rising."

ok, they are in PRODUCTION now, and costs are RISING.

why? what does this tell us?

personally i doubt sony would be stupid enough to charge more than $500/$600 for the PS3 to recoup cell chip costs, its more likely they would make a greater loss on each console. sucks for them...

and these 'rising costs' are they due to the cell chips that are being produced being sh1tty and not working or becuase there are too few being made too slowly? either way its bad news.

Well...
considering the system costs like $800 to manufacture, the idea that they're losing a lot of money on this console isn't shocking news. I do wonder though which chips specifically are costing more than before. Maybe the RSX?
