Xbox One costs Microsoft $471 to build, according to an upcoming report from IHS.

The largest part of the cost comes from the Kinect camera which is packaged with the system.

According to the report, which via AllThingsD was gievn an early look at, Kinect’s manufacturing cost is $75 and the console’s combination CPU-GPU from AMD runs $110.

IHS releases its teardown report on PS4 last week, and followed it up with a video. The system, according to the firm, costs $381 to manufacture.

    When you read the article of AllthingsD it uses the word “estimated” 4 times, the word “about” 9 times. So I guess the educated guess of $471 to manufacture an Xbox One could be just approximately right. Or not.

    @6 More features? Xbox doesnt even use the same type of memory the PS4 uses.. so if anything its more possibilities to add features on the PS4. Ps4 GPU better… PS4 Processor… Faster… PS4 uses GDDR5 Memory which is better… you have dilusions of grandier..
