ROFLMAO, Nintendo is getting greedier than ever lately, there's no way the control pad costs them even half that price to make. I had my doubts about the success of the console when I saw these prices, since the console will most likely be as powerful as a 360 at best. But now I'm pretty sure it'll meet low sales until they lower those controllers price.
EDIT : That conference page asks for your birthdate and 2013 is an option. xD
