Report: Vita components cost $160

by Josh Hamel

A tear-down of the PlayStation Vita has revealed the components of the device add up to an estimated value of $160.

The estimated prices for individual components of the device by tech experts at UBM Tech Insights are:

  • Display and touchscreens: $50
  • Battery: $3.60
  • Cameras: $3.50
  • Wi-Fi/BT/GPS: $3.50
  • NAND: $6.00
  • SDRAM: $9.25
  • Processor: $16.00
  • BB+XCR: $16.25
  • Non-electronic: $11.00
  • Other: $30.00
  • Supporting materials: $10.00

    For the $250 WiFi only model, Sony looks to make about $90 on each device sold. This estimation does not take into account the cost of developing or marketing the device or selling it wholesale to retailers, however.

  • In comparison, the 3DS has roughly $100 worth of raw materials in the device and sells for $170 after a price drop from the original $250.

    The PlayStation Vita is set to launch in western markets February 22.
