Not only are these $20 more now than they were before and come with a game you may or may not want, but these things cost a staggering near $800 with taxes just to play a few nice looking video games. People are straight up starving out there due to food inflation and higher usage of food banks but screw it right, put another $800 on your credit card, it doesn't matter >.>

Just my two cents, there's better things to spend $800 on, like I don't know, food, shelter, power, heat, cheaper video game systems, a PC that gets free games from Epic every week and discounts, the list goes on. These things are just way too overpriced for an old person like me who used to pay $100-$200 for a game console, now it's 4x times as much and 10 times less games than before with monetization everywhere. Gimme back my $10 Shadow of the Colossus and $99 brand new PS2 consoles darnit! At least those were full games! *goes off to tell kids to get off his lawn*
PS2 was sold for $449CAD in 2000

$449 in 2000 = $716 in 2022.

So it was actually more expensive to buy a PS2 in 2000 then a PS5 in 2022.

Lol at this point just wait for a PS5 Slim, maybe then they'll finally have a game worth caring about that isn't already on PS4.

If anything, y'all young kids are stupid for buying $800 consoles just to play Fortnite on.
I'm probably older than you....it's about the approach though, not when it happened
And you didn't buy a brand new PS2 for $99

People don't spend $800 on a console to play Fortnite on.

They spend $2,000 on a PC to play Fortnite on.

Lol. Also waiting 2 years to build that PC since they only buy components when it goes on sale and is posted on RFD!

I vividly remember paying $99 for a brand new PS2 around that time period. New consoles weren't $100-$200 no, but the older ones were around that time. I bought a GameCube with Mario Kart Double Dash for $99 too. Xbox 360s were relatively cheap for being anew console at the time but a regular Xbox could've been got for around $99 too at the time. The PS3 was a stupidly high price though when it came out, that in comparison almost seems cheap compared to the PS5. The problem is now there are no older consoles to buy new anymore, you can't go out and buy a PS4 new or an Xbox One, you're forced to buy a PS5 or Series S/X if you want a new one. Nintendo gets away with their shtick because of their exclusives but I think more people would probably buy PS4s at a lower cost still than PS5s. Maybe not Xboxes though.

Yes but also:

Sony cut the price of the console in May 2002 from US$299 to $199 in North America,[43] making it the same price as the GameCube and $100 less than the Xbox. It also planned to cut the price in Japan around that time.[44] It cut the price twice in Japan in 2003.[45] In 2006, Sony cut the cost of the console in anticipation of the release of the PlayStation 3.[45]

Whereas Sony has increased the price in 2 years by $20 per PS5 instead of decreasing. Within 2 years of the PS2 it had a 33% price cut then a 50%+ or so price cut in 2006 (or around that time). AKA the overall price when down by 66% in 6 years whereas the PS5 is only increasing in price. A more accurate example would be to take the $99 it cost in 2006 or so and compare that to what the PS5 will cost in 6 years (the same or more). In Canada, CA$99.00 in 2006 would be equivalent to CA$137.73 in 2022, an absolute change of CA$38.73 and a cumulative change of 39.12%. You could buy 5-6 PS2s adjusted for 2006 inflation for what the PS5 will cost in 2026 (6 years after release) since it will not drop in price at all.
Back to being offline, everyone just makes fun of me or ruins my threads anyway. I get 1 nice comment per 100 bad ones so you can all fend for yourselves :( I'm just a bad RFDer...

$50 Dreamcast FTW. All the free games you could ever want.


And yes, PS2 consoles were $99 to $129 at the end of Sonys decade run.
