Retailer Console Margins

An anonymous CompUSA employee has posted what the retailer makes on various consoles. For the Xbox 360 Premium it is 3.9%, Xbox 360 Core 2.6%, and the Nintendo Wii is 5%. Nintendo is giving a higher profit margin to its retail partners, however if you actually do the math, selling an Xbox 360 gives you a higher absolute profit. - Source
