Microsoft only makes $28 for every Xbox One sold

26 sec read

IHS estimates that the combined parts and manufacturing costs of  the Xbox One, which includes the console, the Kinect, and the Xbox One controller, costs a total of $471. This means that Microsoft only makes $28 for every Xbox One sold, which is still $10 more than Sony makes for every PS4 sold.

We recently learned the PlayStation 4 only costs a total of $381 to build, which means its current selling price of $399 allows Sony to rake in just $18 per console that’s sold. Now that the Xbox One is out in the wild, IHS has once again estimated what it costs to build Microsoft’s next-generation console, and it looks like the company isn’t making much money with the sale of each console either.
