Good point, and one I didn't think of. Although another tweak might be preference of where the price was loaded.

In the US to buy a console ($199 for a NES when my mom got me one in 88) to play $40-$50 games on seemed a cheaper deal than buying a $499 computer (Amiga) or even $1200 (Early MACs) to pay for $15-20 and under games.

That isn't really mathematically true, but marketing is powerful in the States.
