Historical Prices of Game Consoles

The Curmudgeon Gamer did a little bit of number crunching, and has some nice bar graphs of the historical prices of gaming consoles. The data is for consoles released from 1976 to the present and includes relative and absolute costs. Take a look, and see if you think the Playstation 3’s $500-600 price tag is outrageous or not. The Curmudgeon’s post has received over 120 comments, and they are worth looking at as well. The image below is from the Curmudgeon’s analysis.
