But what is it exactly? A ram-cart on a pc board, and nothing more?
I don't think that they want to make a profit from this project, they are
just trying to keep the Intellivision spirit alive, that is a good thing :)
But I believe that such a device shouldn't be very complex, so how could
that price be explained? 
Ok, they're giving a lot of games with it, but these shouldn't cost
anything to them...

Really true, especially if any very small-scale production of an electronic
device would cost so much.
