iSuppli looked inside the $400 version PS3. The number of components has dropped from 4,048 in the first PS3 model to just 2,820, and both the Cell processor and NVIDIA GPU have slimmed down from 90nm to 65nm. They estimate it cost $448.73 in parts - still a loss. Don't get your hopes up for a price drop any time soon.
