History of Console Prices | PS3Blog.net

PS3Some enterprising dude over at Curmudgeon Gamer went and did something cool. He put together a couple charts. One that showed the release prices of many gaming consoles. So you get the Atari 2600 at $200, the Neo Geo at $650, the PlayStation 2 at $300, etc. It’s interesting, really to see that lots of the consoles were released at the $200 price point.

But you gotta know there’s more. Inflation, of course! The next chart shows the same console prices, adjusted for inflation. What are the top three?

  1. Neo Geo ($993.65)
  2. 3DO ($967.89)
  3. Intellivision ($825.62)

Out of the 26 consoles, the high-end PS3 places 7th, behind the famous Atari 2600 and the envious Intellivision. The Xbox 360 places 12th.
