That's even more than the rip off prices in the UK and Europe. Do many other consoles get more expensive over their lifetime?

19,990 in Indian Rupees comes to about $500 ($1 = Rs.40) for the Wii and $200 for the DS. However, when Xbox 360 and PS3 were launched, their prices, high at the time, eventually came down. Not exactly meeting the price cuts that people around the world have been enjoying but nonetheless, much more affordable when first announced.

Also, this is India we're talking about. Most small-town folk still associate Road Rash with the best gaming has to offer.

The console market is doing well here....The only reason why the consoles are priced high is because of the fked up custom duties. Nothing else.
