ITS BULLSHIT.

That is a f**king lie, noone will pay $200 for starter.

Infact, ultimate is going to cost around that.

First, this isn't the final price list

Second, Microsoft does know that the world is in recession

Third, Microsoft is so rich that they wouldn't care if the would was in recession as long as they get their money

Fourth, go buy GTA IV.
