I guess in the internet age, we got used to thinking of stuff in US dollars, and then when we had parity for a few years, we were spoiled.
I did some quick research on old AU launch prices.
The Wii was $399
Wii U $429 (premium though that was often reduced/price matched to under $400 on launch day if you asked)
460 499/649 (core and HDD version)
GC $299 (was 329 but got cut just before launch from memory)
