35 Years of Console Launch Prices

Gaming consoles have always been quite the financial investment for a consumer.  This is also true for the companies as well as most of these systems were sold at a loss at launch (they use games and accessories to make up the deficit..."razor" marketing strategy).  I notice how Nintendo seems to have done the best job staying at a median price over such a long time period.  Thoughts on this graph?  I shall try to find one with the handheld systems as well.
