Even though the XBox 360 US launch was a success it is now rumored that Microsoft actually loses money on every XBox 360 it sells. Portelligent research has said that the estimated cost of producing an XBox 360 core system is $310.00 but is only being sold at $299.99. On the other hand, Microsoft loses even more on the premium bundle which costs an estimated $525.00 to produce but is only being sold at $399.99. This situation may only be temporary, costs should come down as production increases. Source: [MobileMag]
