PS2 was sold for $449CAD in 2000BanditKeith wrote: ↑ I can see why downvotes are a thing though since the first option: "not a good price" is pretty much what this is. 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*
$449 in 2000 = $716 in 2022.
So it was actually more expensive to buy a PS2 in 2000 then a PS5 in 2022.
