Microsoft is making a loss of almost $300 per Xbox360?!

It’s sounds a little bit crazy what is just read on HardwareHell. But they claim, that a source at IBM whispered them quietly that Microsoft is loosing a hell out of money – exactly more then $300 with every Xbox360 sold! That’s very large number in comparison to the first numbers that were circulating on the world wide web.
According to this article from November – the total bill of materials (BOM) cost for the Xbox 360 Premium reaches $525. Which number is right? Perhaps the truth is somewhere in the middle.

  1. Meh… not that surprising. They'll make tons of cash from the game sales anyways. But 300$ is quiet an amount. I guess that's one of the reasons they didn't want to take any chances and over manufacture.
