Don't yields and manufacturing of brand-new processors get better over time? Xbox 360 uses disc technology that's been in the consumer market for years...dual-layer DVDs. Players for these discs began at hundreds and hundreds of dollars, but now you can get for for about $15. Find me a Blu-Ray player that costs the same. The point is that there aren't many components in the 360 that over time can make manufacturing cheaper. Cheaper enough for, say, a price drop. Of course, it's obvious now that MS uses cheap parts and cheap manufacturing processes, looking at the failure rate and all of the lawsuits, etc. Microsoft has no reason to have a price drop while Sony, with PS3 components being cheaper to make, has every reason I can think of. Maybe this is why Sony had a price drop after 3/4 of a year while MS has yet to actually release one after 7/4 years, and the rumored price drop amount (the one Mike from the Times somehow knows) is actually less of a percentage of the total price than the price drop Sony actually gave us.
yes i know that things get cheaper over time but thats not what i was saying,i meant that even with the repair cost M$ is not going to be as deep as sony will,the price of blu ray has droped as will as the CPU and other parts but still your looking at a 300-400 doller lose on ever PS3 where as M$ is losing just over 120+the cost of the repair of about 33% of 11.1 milion 360s,im sure it does not cost them more that 200$ to fix each 360 so sony if sony where to sell 11.1 milion PS3 they would be down about 333 million at about a 300$ lose where as M$ will should be around 180 million that takes into acount the about 3.8 million 360 that they will have to fix costing about 200$,now this is just based on the sale and the cost of the console not the cost of workers and power to run the plantes that fix then as will as how much it cost to ship them.
