250 is VAT included. It's around $210 excuding VAT, which is not so far from $250.wrowa said:Wii's launch price in the US: 250$
Wii's launch price in Europe: 250
We are used to that kind of rip-off, we aren't even complaining anymore.
The small diffence can partly be justified by more complex distribution (more countries, languages, etc.)
Rip-off seems quite a strong word to me.
(thus, if it's 200 in Europe, it's ~$235 VAT excluded, probably $229 or even rounded to $199)
