Sony's chief financial officer Hiroki Totoki explained why it's still early days to determine the cost of it.
"First, we must absolutely control the labor cost, the personnel cost, it must be controlled," he said, "And the initial ramp up, how much can we prepare initially, we will work on the production and the sales and we will have to prepare the right volume as we launch this."
