Guess the cheapest game console ever

When we try to justify the price we pay for a game console, we rarely think back past the last generation. At just $400, the PlayStation 4 is a steal compared to its $600 predecessor, yet Microsoft has received plenty of flak for launching the Xbox One at $500. What’s interesting is that when we step back just a few generations further, prices suddenly plummet to $300 or less.

The article doesn't mention that these are inflation-adjusted (and that can be open to interpretation exactly how much to adjust). They are also prices at launch

They used the less expensive PS3 and 360 SKU's also.

Did we read same article? The list and article mention that price are inflation adjusted.

Im just feeling old. Ive owned 21 of the consoles on the list.

Wow, 21. I've only owned 10 of them but if I include my friend's houses who I've spend lots of time at, my list still only gets to 15. It will be 16 when I get a current gen system.

Without looking, inflation adjusted, I'm thinking WiiU followed by Ps4.

Edit
Well I wasn't even close. Didn't think the GameCube was that cheap. This chart is weird, many consoles don't seem to have gone up all that much. Plus I'm remembering Australian prices which were over double these.

Yeah, thank nintendo and their price fixing in Australia and Europe for our extremely high prices.

That's not what he said at all...

UltraNova739d ago

I dont know what you guys talk about but I payed the equivalent of $575 for my PS4 (425 euro)...

uth11739d ago

The chart is inflation adjusted and US dollars. Those aren't the prices you would have paid then, it's the equivalent of what you'd pay today

The Dreamcast and Gamecube kicked ass
