Makes a lot of sense, if it sold better and they were making profit why not? Hopefully it'll mean more people can enjoy the system, and that's good for everyone.
Also things are escalating very quickly here. Cut it out with the personal attacks and sly digs else fear the wrath of my banhammer, because there's no need for it.
How do we know they were making a profit?
I don't see why they'd drop the price otherwise.
