Sony's PlayStation 4 is already profitable
If Sony is to reverse its heavy losses, big-selling products like the PlayStation 4 need to turn a profit. The good news is that the company's newest console is already fulfilling that requirement, having already recouped Sony's investment in the hardware, and it now looks set to beat profits achieved by the internationally legendary PS2. Speaking at a corporate strategy meeting, Sony president Kaz Hirai said the PS4 was "already contributing profit on a hardware unit basis, establishing a very different business framework from that of previous platform businesses." There's no doubt over which console Hirai is referring to here: the PS3 took three years to shed its loss-leading status, after cancelling out gains made from Sony's "biggest gaming success," the PlayStation 2.

of course they are on course to make a profit on PS4 hardware, it's uses last generation parts.
only 8Gb memory, GPU which can only handle 1080p at medium details settings, and a CPU that holds no candle to a desktop CPU.
the parts just don't add up to a powerful device... they missed the boat in my humble opinion. All aboard the steamtrain that is SteamOS
now with in-house game streaming (public!) you can run SteamOS on any old device and enjoy "console" games from your couch
