PS3 now makes money (as well as playing games)


When the PS3 was originally released, Sony were losing something ridiculous like $300 per console sold – such were the high manufacturing costs. This, as you can probably guess, didn’t fit into the company’s business plan. In case you weren’t sure, “profit” is the thing you’re supposed to make.

So it should cheer Sony up no end that they are now making money on every PS3 console sold. Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida revealed the news in an interview with IGN, saying:

“This year is the first time that we are able to cover the cost of the PlayStation 3… We aren’t making huge money from hardware, but we aren’t bleeding like we used to.”

If they’re anything like us, Sony will now want to buy things now they’re actually making money – we’ve come up with a few suggestions as to what they can buy to make life that little bit sweeter.

Because we all love hats, right? And with money, more hats are forthcoming. Hats for all employees!

Kevin Butler assistants
Sony’s greatest employee of all time doesn’t actually need help, but the company should want to keep him sweet. As such, nubile young assistants – male or female, we make no judgement – should be hired to aid KB.

Free Move hardware for Play
We don’t make as much money as Sony, what with us not being a multinational corporation. As such, maybe they should use their profits to help us out. We have been loyal to the cause for nearly 15 years now, after all.

More hats
Seriously – you can never have too many hats.

R&D on a smaller, cheaper PS3
Because it never hurts to have a half-serious entry in a list like this, and Sony would like to make more money, right?

That should soak up all the profit they’ve made for now. We’ll make more suggestions once Sony have a bit more in the coffers.
