    Speculation: Sony losing $260 on every PS3 shipped?

    According to writer Greg Howson over at the (linked above), he has done some number crunching and believes that the PS3 could be losing $260 on every PS3 shipped!

    Here is his reasoning: On Sony's own figures, the games division made a loss of $130 for each PlayStation 3 shipped. Let's assume that it's making pots of money on the PSP and the PlayStation 2: the PS2 is now hugely profitable and still sells more games than anything else.

    These two platforms could easily have made a profit of $1.2bn in the year. In that case, the total PS3 loss would have been $2.4bn shared between 9.24m PS3 consoles, or $260 per PS3 -- including any attached Sony games.

    Sound like a realistic estimate? Of course, only Sony knows for sure...
