In an infamous 1995 interview, Atari CEO Sam Tramiel said he'd get the ITC (International Trade Commission) on Sony's case if the Playstation entered the market in the $249-299 range. He went on to say, "You can't have the Japanese consumer paying a fattened dollar price, then subsidize the product and dump it in the United States for $249 and kill U.S. manufacturers. It's against the law." Sony's console did indeed debut at a $299 price point, though no Atari lawsuits came of it.
