Sony "Not Planning A Major Loss" With PS4 Launch

Posted on Thursday, May 9 @ 09:45:00 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Sony does not plan to have a repeat of the PlayStation 3 launch with its new console, and as such, isn't anticipating a substantial loss with the PlayStation 4.

"Unlike PS3, we are not planning a major loss to be incurred with the launch of PS4," Sony CFO Masaru Kato said during today's earnings call (via Eurogamer). "At the time we developed PS3, we made a lot of in-house investments to develop the chip – the Cell chip. Development of the chip saw the silicon processing and all the facilities invested by us ourselves."

Kato went on to add: "Yes we have a team working on chip development – but we already have existing technology to incorporate and also product investment and all the facilities will now be invested by our partners, other foundries, so we don't have to make all the investment in-house."

Do you think the PlayStation 4 will give Sony the killer next-gen start they're anticipating? Let us know in the comments below.
