It has been mentioned plenty of times about how much money Sony loses on every PlayStation 3 they manufacture.

The latest numbers were that Nintendo has made a profit from day one on every Wii they make, Microsoft has been making about $75 profit since June last year and Sony has been losing between $300-$400 per console.

It seems that the PS3 used to cost over $800 to manufacture, however due to some system changes and by dropping some features Sony have managed to bring that down to $400. They are also expecting to start making a profit on the console during 2008.

Which means they will once again be in a position to drop the price, which is good news for people like us.
