Technology website Ars Technica has posted a really great article looking at the launch prices of the PS4 and Xbox One compared to other video game consoles in the past.
If we take into account inflation, the launch prices of older video games console systems are massive. Panasonic’s 3DO cost a massive $700 when it first launched. In today’s money, this will equate to $1,127! The PS3 launched with a high $600 but is now worth nearly $700 today if adjusted for inflation.
The graph below should give you an idea that the PS4 and Xbox One is thankfully on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to launch prices.
