In addition to Paul's response please read my post above http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53673131
The only person attacking anything is you - you are then forcing someone to "attack" you (in your eyes) back - by stating opinions and facts as Paul explained.  Please reread the original posters question and then look at this part of the thread.

Some others share my opinions. It is my opinion that the A6000 is as formidable a camera as the A77ii is. I think it is incorrect information to see claims how the A77ii's AF system has to be automatically superior. While I'm seeing how people state that ultimately, the only way to know is by doing side by side tests and comparisons, at the same time stories are constructed and parroted around how an SLT can see the subject full time, uninterrupted. While that may be true, it does not imply that the A6000 is automatically inferior. Perhaps all the A6000 needs is a single frame to draw the conclusions it needs, and it can get that frame between each 1/11s shot.

Where do stories come into it?  An SLT can see the subject full time, uninterrupted... It's not reading form the sensor, it's not blocked by a shutter and the mirror doesn't move...  So that's a fact, not a story.  Whether that gives any benefit is a different question but Paul did not give an opinion on performance.
You have no idea who has done what testing though Mike...  We've seen Gustav's latest (A77II work) so we know that there is at least one real physical operational body out there - as with all new releases there are probably NDAs in place too.  Notice how no one else in this portion of the thread is giving an opinion and stating it as fact.
In summary my opinion is that you need to calm down and stop taking Paul's objective list as a statement that the A6000 is an inferior camera and instead read it as a list of differences between the 2 cameras that may add cost (which is the question the OP asked).

The fact is that I am not going to try to be helpful and explain this to you again in this thread.
