How Much Would a Retro Game Console Cost if Adjusted for Inflation?
When I saw this picture, I was stunned by how much my Intellivision game console would cost today!
I bought the thing at a garage sale used I think for $40 with about 20 games, which was a pretty good deal. Then, I look at what it would have cost today if I bought the thing brand new fresh from the manufacturer. It’s insane!

I thought it was crazy when the PS3 came out at $600! Then, I remember the ill-fated Panasonic 3DO. Man, that was not a good game console (IMO).
