PS4 costs $381 to build

 Remember the days when sony had a loss for every PS3 sold?These days are gone...PS3 manufacture cost was about $805 and the console's price was $599.According to a research firm IHS,the construction cost of the Playstation 4 reaches a total of $381,just $18 less than the retail selling point,but it's a progress for sony i guess.

 Here are some information about the cost of the console's hardware.
-The AMD processor costs $100 and the 16 memory chips $88.Total $188 half of the price!
-The seagate hard disk costs $37
-Wireless chips from Marvell and Skyworks and an optical drive $28
-Dual shock 4 costs $18(contains Bluetooth chip from QUALCOMM,an audio chip from Wolfson Microelectronics and a motion sensor chip from Bosch.
 Sony's profits from the PS4 will come from quality software.Bring it sony!
