Sony is expected to make a $60 loss on each PS4 sold at $399, well-placed sources have told Eurogamer.

Sony Japan executive Masayasu Ito denied this will be the case, explaining profit would be made once a typical user buys a PS Plus subscription and at least one game.

Ito wasn't clear how many games would need to be purchased by an early adopter in order for Sony to turn a profit.

Last month, Sony said the PS4's off-the-shelf design meant that the console wouldn't incur the level of losses of PS3.

Earlier this month, Microsoft said Xbox One would break even or make a small profit on sales.

PS4 goes on sale in the UK on November 29, one week after the Xbox One.

Didn't MS announce that the Xbox One actually makes a profit this time around? or at least breaks even...sure I read that. Would be a very Nintendo-like decision for MS to make, in that they could reduce the retail price and make a small loss to increase take-up. Nintendo famously hasn't done that in the past and always sells at a profit. Though isnt the Wii U sold at a loss?
