But sells for $50 to you

EETimes is reporting that despite Microsoft selling its Xbox 360 console at a loss, accessories always drives significant revenue and often returns all losses. The article states that the Xbox 360 wireless controller makes extremely profitable margins for Microsoft as they cost $11 to manufacture but sell for $50 or more in stores.

While profitable margin is nothing new, the new wireless controller brings in significant amounts of profit. For every wireless Xbox 360 controller bought, nearly 4 more can be produced. It has always been known that accessories are the true cash cows, but Microsoft also has a solid game library in the works.

Wait, is this for the wired or wireless controller? 11 bucks to make a wireless controller seems pretty low.

Yeah, the d-pads do suck. They're like analog sticks that tried to become d-pads but flunked out of d-pad school.

well, considering it costs over $500 to make a 360, they have something to make up for.
