The PS4 has one nice advantage over the Xbox One.(Maybe more depending on what you are looking for in a console) The price. The Xbox One is priced at $499 while the Sony PlayStation 4 will be priced at $399. It does not come with the PlayStation Eye, unlike the Xbox One which comes bundled with the Kinect.
Even so, Sony will still be taking a loss on the console. According to a report by Eurogamer, Sony is taking a loss of about $60 on every PlayStation 4 console sold. Sony thinks that they can make back the loss through the sales of PlayStation Plus memberships.
It is a strategy that companies sometimes use and it can work well. For instance, Amazon was reported to have taken a loss on Kindle Fire tablets and expected to recoup the loss through the sales of apps and books purchased. All we know is that we can’t wait for the next gen consoles.
