Sony’s will make a loss on each PS3 Slim unit it makes, PlayStation mega-boss Kaz Hirai’s told Times Online.

“If you’re just talking about the hardware alone, the quick answer is yes,” he said.

“That makes good headlines, but I don’t actually know that that’s the true nature of the business that we’re all in, whether it’s PlayStation, Xbox or the Wii.

“I think the better indicator is to look at the business as a whole platform, to ask: are you profitable in terms of the hardware, software and peripherals. And the answer to that question is yes on a gross profit level since the last fiscal year.”

Bonanza. Slim costs £250. Thanks, Kotaku.
