Definitely th new normal. It does make a lot of sense and though it's high for entry leaving many young kids out of th loop for a while it is still online with what adults expect to pay. Even an Xbox 360 with 250gb HD and Kinect runs $400.... So for $100 more you get a massively upgraded console, upgraded kinect 2, double the HD space, new controller, and a Bluray player (though this feature is completely useless for people like me who will never stick a BD movie in the drive and might even download all the content I purchase making any sort of disc drive just an added wasted cost).
So in the end comparing to the current generation it really isn't that expensive...
By my off the top of my head converions, the Brits are really getting screwed.
Something tells me there will be an SSD model before long. Probably in the 128 GB/ $600-$650 range.

if sony charges $100 less and lets you use used games and you don't have to buy gold membership to use Netflix,
Microsoft needs to make a few changes
Not necessarily, the added feature of Kinect 2 which with the original XBOX added 150$ brings the cost down to the competitive range of the PS4.
Ever since the Playstation Move or whatever it was called failed, microsoft has had a distinct advantage. They have however lost traction with serious gamers who want more power and less show.
In a way PS4 appeals to heavy Gamers while the Xbox One appeals to a younger Crowd. with its higher price point that be a poor combination from Microsoft.
