RJ Mical and Pegasos in Helsinki : Comment 16 of 16ANN.lu

In reply to Comment 15 (Casey R Williams):
It is untrue too that their competitors were loosing money on their consoles either. I have Atari's cost sheet for the Jaguar here, the $199 Jaguar cost them only $87 to manufacture once R&D costs were recouped. That is why they were able to drop prices to $149 so rapidly once the Playstation arrived. Then to $99 a unit, but by that point the cost to manufacture had diminished even more, to only $43 a unit.

The first accusation of a company loosing money on a console sale was during this era. It was made by Atari actually, against the Playstation. It was also groundless, but the urban legend has persisted since. I believe that the first console to actually loose money per unit sold is the X-Box.
