And you would be right, if it weren't for the fact that we're talking about global sales, where 1 euro/pound/any other world currency doesn't equal 1 US Dollar.
RRP in the US = $399
RRP in the UK = £349 ($586.79 USD as of this post)
RRP in the EU = €399 ($552.64 USD as of this post)
RRP in Australia = $549 AUD ($513.00 USD as of this post)
Before taxes, shipping, other expenses, the PS4 is around $349-$449 USD everywhere. $2.8 billion gross is a pretty accurate guess.
