I believe you do know what you're talking about with how these orders are made, but I still genuinely think full speed production is NOT happening right now. Maybe by the summer, 3~4 months before release. Not 8 months when the actual design of the PS4 shell might not be finalized.

Of course they're not makign anything yet. But they still need to make the orders for the components long in advance.

When Sony starts production in July, It's a little late to call AMD and order CPU's and Samsung to order Memory, they will just reply "sorry but all our production lines or take by MS" :p

These are orders that go over very large quantities over very long periods. for everyone involved large bulk orders is better, that's why the factories are willing to go lower in price on them, and why Sony wants them because it offers stability and of course lower prices.

The main problem with prices is the ones Sony can control themselves or have no control over.

basically final assembly there they have somewhat more control depending on how and where it's done. there the price often goes down as the first production runs is often done manually in cheap Asian labor factories as the factory itself finishes production on the actual automated line. This is why Asian factories win most contracts, their labor costs are low enough that they can offer much faster production start up since they can hire a thousand idiots for menial assembly labor to immediately start up production while the line takes 2 months to set up and make sure it works properly. we lost a contract that way.

Shipping is another big one which is also a major contributor to the varying costs around the globe along with the various MVA's and local warranty rules. the 1 year minimum warranty and 5 year factory warranty in Norway sure ads into the cost of a product in Norway, or rather eats into the profits, especially on a brand new product like this who has high above average faults.

are we already starting with the wars again? GOOOD, makes me feel young, like it's 2006 all over! keep it up boys!

but seriously, both PS4 and new Xbox will kick ass, looking forward to it. the presentation was good. some of the stuff was a little goofy but overall very good. Having Cerny up front was a huge plus, the guy is a legend. I even like the new DualShock, that touchpad could prove useful. And i simply can't wait for KZ4, it looks amazing - i'm a sucker for FPS's what can i say.

if you're not excited about any of this fine, that's your prerogative, but you're probably in the wrong part of the forums!

So now that MS have their pre-E3 conference, it would be a good time to go back and rewatch Sonys



The massive difference being Sonys focus on gaming, gamers and without a doubt INDIE developers. MS didn't mention the Indies once....
