Playstation 1 games (as far as I can remember) brand new were 49.99$ and Playstation 2 and Xbox games new were 54.99$. Could be wrong though.

because they're disc based. I'm used to the cartridges though, and those were always $60 since the SNES days. N64 was the same, Perfect Dark and all, were $60 new. I bought Donkey Kong Country 2 for SNES brand new from Best Buy for $60 over a decade ago.

Xbox 1 games when it was brand new were often $60 too from where I shopped but that was in the early 2000's when it was current.

If you account for inflation, $60 now is actually a steady price raise from the prices of a few generations ago, as inflation has gone up more than 10 or 20 % in 2 decades....not bad considering the budget of game development in the current day.
