With the PS4 releasing this November for 399$, being 100$ cheaper than its rival, the Xbox One, many have wondered if Sony would have profit from the PS4's release. According to what Eurogamer has heard from well-placed sources, Sony is expecting a $60 loss on each PS4 sold.
This was quickly denied by Masayasu Ito, Sony Japan's executive. According to Ito, Sony will be making profit from the moment users buy PlayStation Plus subscriptions and games. Ito also added that even without the purchase of games, the PS4 will incur a profit at a sooner point than PS3.
Masaru Kato, Chief financial officer, also said last month that due to the PS4's architecture being similar to a PC, unlike the PS3 which featured custom components, made the cost production of the PS4 much smaller.
The PS4 will be released on the 15th of November in North America, arriving at Europe two weeks later, on the 29th of November.
