Of course the controller is expensive, but I have to ask. At some point, Nintendo released the Game Boy Advance SP for 100 dollars and made mad bank on it, is it really feasible that this controller cost a lot to make all around? I've never seen a breakdown of the cost but, to my understanding, a 50 dollar 360 pad is sold at a HUGE profit margin, so adding the shit speakers, a volume rocker, the (low quality) screen, and... The streaming tech? Is that unique controller wise?
I'm curious if this thing cost them more to make than their previous handhelds. I always assumed it would be closer to 50 bucks to make the thing but I don't know what these parts would go for.
