Do you think we'll ever see consoles launching at $200-$300 ever again?

Doubtful when they are selling the way they do at current prices.

However the sweet spot for massive sales will remain in the $200 - $300 range, they know it and we know it.
What is brutal for MS is having that $100 Kinect boat anchor, I hate to harp on it but unless they break it up or just price match the PS4 with it included PS4 is always going to have a sales edge due to price

If we are honestly able to get a decade of great games out of both systems then I most definitely count $399.99 and $499.99 as bargains.

If we're all blaming it on inflation, how come games have only rose by 10-20%? Console games cost around $50 going back to even the early '90s. If inflation were the only reason for price increase, we'd be paying $100-$120 for our games now.

Because games were ridiculously overpriced back then...

And Forza 5 costs anywhere between 60-110 + 2200 in microtransactions
