    PS3 to lose $307 per unit

    Well, not good news for Sony fans but really good news for Nintendo

    Not really anything special since many consoles lose money at first but gain later. Except the Wii however

    This probably isn't good for me if this starts to hurt Nintendo since i'm a fan of all.

    A 20-gigabyte version of PlayStation 3 costs almost $806
    The 60-gigabyte model retails for $599 and costs $840

    SO THE 20 COST LESS THAN 50 LESS TO MAKE YET THE 60 HAS A BUNCH OF MORE STUFF IN IT.

    DNT BE SURPRISE IF THEY CANCEL THE 20 SOON.

    HERES IS MORE DETAIL

    well I have heard the same for the 360 and they are finally making a profit this past summer... anybody know how much wii would be losing/profiting per system?
    If the Xbox 360 console falls and hits someone, especially a small child, it could cause serious injury.

    This is only true if you do not take Research and Development into account. Nintendo are not losing money when it comes to the components, packaging and distribution, but Nintendo will yet to see a profit from this project.

    You need to take into account R&D and promotion as costs which need to be deducted from the total sales of the units. Developing the Wii Remote can't of been cheap. Also, when looking at advertising, this is the first time (besides DS) that I've seen Nintendo advertise on UK TV.

    They're losing money, like many other consoles at launch, but their betting on people to buy games to make up for it. But $300 worth of games? A little too much imo
