Cooling system "unusually expensive at a few dollars per unit" when typically less than a dollar.
"Sony opted to lavish more on making sure heat dissipation from the powerful chips housed inside the console isn’t an issue."
I’d say this would be fairly accurate based on what I’ve heard. But still all unconfirmed ofc.— Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) February 14, 2020
I previously estimated the build cost of Series X would be higher at over $460 minimum and still expect that to be the case. https://t.co/tQCh4VW5aJ https://t.co/B1XnDH55sf
Also I want to clarify one point from the original tweet. I’m not saying that XSX build cost is $460.— Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) February 14, 2020
I estimated that the build cost would be in the $460 minimum to $520 maximum range based on current component costs.
To simplify it, higher than the PS5 build cost somewhat.

Let's not forget the big wildcard for Microsoft here, that they have multiple entry points:
- High end next gen console (Series X)
- Low/Mid end next gen console
- Buy/Build your own low/mid/high end PC
- High end next gen console only (PS5)
Hmm. I think TV TV, second screen experiences, and the BOM vs. PS360 are pretty obvious signs among many that console makers were looking to avert risk and broaden out beyond the classic "dedicated" box.Next-gen PS5 and next Xbox speculation |OT11| All Hell Has Broken Loose.

I think this time they are much more convinced that the dedicated box is still a pretty big deal, hence why they are comparatively "splurging" on them hardware wise.
