Ever wonder how much game consoles would cost you today if you adjusted their prices for inflation? Well, here is a handy chart showing you all of the details. I can’t believe how many of these I have owned. I have spent way too much on video games, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. At least I didn’t spend the money in today’s dollars.
Damn. That NeoGeo would be $1,125(USD) and the Panasonic 3DO $1,095. Surprisingly, the Intellivision is nearly as expensive, at $935, while the Atari 2600 is a pricey $796. The Nintendo systems are still pretty decently priced though. In fact the Gamecube is the cheapest one on this list.
I would be interested in seeing some of the classics that aren’t here though. What about the Atari 5200? That would probably be pretty expensive. In any event, this reminds me to dig some of my old consoles out and play them. Good times.
