I would never game again if consoles rose to that price in the US.

That's ridiculous. It's easy to forget about how different markets outside of the US are.

It makes you wonder how much Sony has to benefit by selling in the country at all. Of course it's best to reach as many consumers as possible, but that price is ludicrous.

I'm from Brazil. Some console games in retail launch with the price tag close to 80$. Ps4 arrived here for more than 1000$ at launch.. and this go on, the gtx 970 was sold until some time ago for like 400$

in the other hand, steam keeps the price "freezed" since a few years ago (inflation here is a bit high).Most of the steam games then launch cheaper. Like Mafia 3 launched for 129 BRL, which is less than 40$. Only Bethesda charges 249 BRL in steam for new releases

One of the greatest gaming console of all time.

From what I understand, Sega still sells new Master Systems over there too.

They should release it on NSO's GBA lineup. The Switch has a light sensor afterall! (Switch Lite owners would be out of luck though)

I don't think games would be able to 'hook into' the light sensor for automatic screen brightness.
The best way to play the game is with the fan patch that lets you adjust the amount of light the game is receiving at will. Make sure not to play at max sunlight for too long, or the game will punish you, keep the sunlight meter lowered in order to keep playing longer.
