Xbox One costs $471 to make


Research firm IHS has given the Xbox One the teardown treatment and has come to the conclusion that system costs $471 to make. This means that it actually costs $90 more than the PlayStation 4 to make which was estimated to cost $381.

Kinect apparently costs $75 to make, making it $11 more expansive than the original connect, but the software seems to be much more advanced, while the Blu-Ray drive costs $32.

It’s not uncommon for a console manufacturer to lose money on consoles but both Sony and Microsoft will be making very small profits form each system sold this time around.
