I tried googling but only going the original price that you probably did not for any of the other revisions.
Your right it was from memory, i just googled and found original price 369,000yen which is 2168...still a massive amount I'm sure you agree for a gaming system.

Its common knowledge the X68000 out of all the Japanese computers (X1, PC-88/98, FM Towns etc was one of the lowest selling systems, mainly due to the price.

Again its not a like for like comparison with the Amiga, you might as well compare the GX4000 to the Neo-Geo as they came out the same year!
