The 360 was such great value at launch (the quoted price was for the core tho).

Was gonna say the exact same thing. If you're gonna adjust prices for inflation you should also adjust the number of gamers by such :D I think the NES (and the Game Boy which isn't here) have incredible sales numbers for their time.

which are still fun even today.

Wait, wheres the Phantom console prices ??? oh wait... :laugh:


Good memories: i had first a Sega Game Gear, a Sega MegaDrive (Genesis for you Americans), a Japanese, hard modded Sega Saturn, a Playstation, a Nintendo 64...

Then i had friends who had GameBoy, NES and SNES, Sega 32x, Sega MegaCD, Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox and so on. It was fun times!


Oh and that NFS: i've played the Saturn edition and trust me, although the graphics weren't as good as the 3DO version, the sound chip was better. That game had a really good soundtrack and graphics and to consider that people jumped from Sonic graphics to that in a couple of years, it was huge.


Also important to say is that most of the people of my age grown up playing games from the very roots of it (i played Pacman in a Arcade guys!), so i tend to value games as they are a very important part of my childhood/teenage years; unlike kids this days that play COD and such and are used to those shiny graphics and lack patience, i grow up with an Timex/ZX Spectrum that had those amazing loading times: 10 minutes or more for loading a single game and it was very often that the k7 would jam and i had to start the loading process all over again... :laugh:  The good part was that it was very easy to copy the game for a friend to play. :rofl:
