    Quoted from jwilson:

    Yeah, you need to update your poll to multiply it by 10.
    This isn't some stupid software startup you can run in your basement, it's manufacturing complex mechanical devices involving thousands of parts. Physical objects cost real money and you need to carry those costs for years with zero profit.

    You left out the cost of the stupid software in these games. Small talent pool and incredibly difficult and costly to do right
