IGN: "PlayStation 3 has been out since 2006 and has sold millions and millions of units. Would you believe that Sony has been taking a loss on each of those systems sold?
We're only bringing this up because it looks like the losses are gong to disappear shortly. Sony Chief Financial Officer Nobuyuki Oneda told a press conference in Tokyo today that Sony has managed to get its PS3 losses down to somewhere between 10% and 20% of the system's retail price. It expects that figure to fall into the single digits before the end of the year, then turn into a profit some time during the next fiscal year. "
