What you won’t see above, but will see if you visit Amazon, is a price of $250, $100 more than the peripheral costs on the Xbox 360. Despite it looking to be exactly the same device. And that same device working just fine on a PC, as hackers have been showing us for over a year.
We’re checking with Microsoft to see if that’s a typo or not.
