just like xbox and ps2 and xbox 360... ZERO profit margin on the console... close to 60% profit on the games and accessories...

and fyi.. maybe 840 per console but they have no idea how many and how big of discounts sony gets for contracts for hardware purchases years into the future.

$600 for a state-of-the-art video game system and a Blu-Ray DVD player is ridiculous. The Blu-Ray players alone are selling for almost $1000 each. Sony plans on making it up through software sales assuming they can be dominant in this generation of video games. I'm glad I just reserved mine early, and said "F*CK the lines!"

it was 400,000 units for the release date alone.

You have three choices, stand behind our troops, grab a gun and toe the line with our troops, or stand in front of them, they can use the extra armor.
