Game Console prices then and now (a $400 PS4's a much better deal than an Atari 2600 ever was)


Recommended Posts

kamyk2000's previous post about "your first console" reminded me of an e-mail I sent out to my distribution list a couple of Summer's ago: Game Consoles (PlayStation, Xbox, etc.) today aren’t that expensive, relatively speaking, considering what they cost over 35 years ago, and how very much more computing power they have now. Example: In 1977, a new Atari 2600 cost $200, which would be the equivalent of $768 today (well, 2013). I think I’d rather pay $399 for a PS4. Smile All-Game-Console-Prices-in-2013-Dollars.jpg
