Sony Investors have been informed that the PlayStation 5 has so far made a loss on sales.



Bloomberg reports that with 4.5 million consoles sold so far, Sony is taking a hit on the machines by placing them at a “strategic price point” – meaning it costs more to manufacture them than they are being sold for.

A combination of competition and high demand for scarce components included in the console’s manufacture has driven up prices of each console to a reported $450 to make.
