The Nintendo Entertainment System was $200 when it debuted in 1986 but adjusted for inflation and that number balloons ups to $412. That’s the price of a PlayStation 4.
Looking back on it, the Dreamcast provided an incredible value at $200. Remember: this was cutting edge graphics on a console at the time. And with titles like SoulCalibur and PowerStone (a couple of DC classics) at launch, it’s a damn shame that it died so prematurely. An argument could be made for the GameCube but its launch library wasn’t nearly as impressive.
