As yet another followup to my previous entry on the cost of producing the Xbox 360, I just ran across a story that claims that Microsoft is actually spending ~$715 on each Xbox 360. It’s hard to say how reliable this information is, as it’s attributed to an Insider Scoop article that cites “a high ranking friend at IBM, ” but if it’s anywhere near the truth, it looks like Microsoft is taking a bath on the front end when it comes to Xbox 360 sales. And for those of you that think it doesn’t matter, because they’ll just make it up on software sales and licensing, you may be right. But check out this article first.
