    Why are the prices so high? Arent they supposed to be 299 and 399??? How come I see 599, 699??? that is almost double the cost of what this console is supposed to be…?? I am trying to get it for my boyfriend..but I don’t want to pay double its cost. Are they going to be sold out if I wait till they actually come out? Is the price going to be the original advertised prices of 299 and 399?? Please let me know, I have looked on the net with no success…Thanks!
