I don't understand some of the complaints regarding this system

The replacement cost of the controller has absolutely no bearing on the retail price of the system, and it certainly doesn't say anything about the manufacturing cost.

Why not? Nintendo is assuredly selling it at a profit, but considering how difficult it is to afford I doubt they're pushing the pricing very far over its value. It's a safe bet that the gamepad is worth at least 1/3 the cost of the system.
