Marketed much more expensive than the Nintendo Wii or Microsoft Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 is still sold at a loss for Sony. Suddenly, the latest data published by iSuppli are of importance: it seems that the electronics giant was able to reduce manufacturing costs by 35% with the latest release of its console show.

Without going into details, iSuppli says a Playstation 3 'old model' amounted to 690.23 dollars for Sony while with the latest version of the machine, it does not cost "more than" U.S. $ 448.73. Knowing that the beast is sold at 399 dollars U.S., the Japanese lost more money on every sale of machine, but in much smaller proportions enabling it without re-entering the fight that opposes both other giants of the sector .
