Seems like a reasonable price to me. Probably won't get it immediately though.

The deluxe kind of seems like a no brainer for $50 more.
Already pre-ordered it on Amazon. Thank Science I don't have to pay 500 for this thing. I would do it, but I wouldn't be stoked about it.
I'll be holding off for now, perhaps let it accumulate a nice, healthy stable of games first. But it's nice to finally have some solid information.
I've already committed to Halo 4 in November. Sorry Nintendo.
