You said:Reading comprehension, dude. I never said they should sell it for $700+. What I said was that for a console to flop as hard as the PS3 at launch, they'd have to sell it for 760 dollars, so comparing 2006 dollars to 2020 dollars is completely pointless.
And obviously paychecks do follow inflation, whether you acknowledge it or not. In fact, Americans have been earning pretty much the same money for the past 40 years. There are hard facts so I don't even understand what you're trying to prove.
"I love how everyone speculating about price completely ignores inflation. $600 in 2006 is now worth $768, so yes, an MSRP of $600 is not only possible, it's very probable too. "
Please do not back out of a statement by blaming it on others.
