haha, what is it with you and posting webcomics tonight?


$400 dollars aint that bad a price considering.

a) new things are expensive
b) new things that are hyped the fuck are very expenisve.
c) J Allard is awesome and we should give him all our money jsut for the privelage of existing on the same planet.

There is no question that four hundred dollars is a good chunk of money, but how wide is the gap between this console launch and the price of previous gaming hardware? What follows is a list of previous consoles with their prices adjusted for inflation according to the Consumer Price Index. NASA.org is kind enough to provide an array of inflation calculators including a separate calculator based on the Employment Cost Index which is based on employee wages and benefits.

Atari VCS launched in 1977 for $249.99 = $811.21 in 2005
Nintendo Entertainment System launched in 1985 for $199.99 = $354.91 in 2005
SEGA Genesis launched in 1989 for $249.99 = $389.67 in 2005
NeoGeo launched in 1990 for $699.99 = $1041.12 in 2005
Super Nintendo launched in 1991 for $199.99 = $282.21 in 2005
Jaguar launched in 1993 for $249.99 = $328.69 in 2005
3DO Interactive Multiplayer launched in 1993 for $699.95 = $920.30 in 2005
SEGA Saturn launched in 1995 for $399.99 = $497.66 in 2005
Nintendo 64 launched in 1996 for $199.99 = $242.75 in 2005
SEGA Dreamcast launches in 1999 for $199.99 = $228.09 in 2005
PlayStation launched in 1995 for $299.99 = $372.01 in 2005
PlayStation 2 launched in 2000 for $299.99 = $333.15 in 2005
Xbox Launched in 2001 for $299.99 = $325.34 in 2005
GameCube launched in 2001 for $199.99 = $216.89 in 2005

when you put it that way... it seems like a pretty reasonable deal.

the thing that puts me off is that all the games are gonna cost more.

I'm gonna wait for a while before I decide if I want one. The current XBOX is only used to watch movies and TV shows..... nothing more but atleast it does a good job of it.

Thank the xbox360 would be bigger then the XBOX *GASP* omgroflamo I hope its bigger then the xbox.

I really hope the 360 is hollow and house-sized. Need to get away from my sister and her crappy playlist of d00m.

i'll probably wait till the ps3 is out. as things stand i'm gonna get a 360, but only after the price comes down a bit (unless i can convince my dad to chip in for one, he likes an exuse to show of his high-def plasma tv :P)
I'm gonna get 'em both! YEAH!
But wait!
I dont have enough money by myself to by them both.....
Maybe this year for Christmas!
YEAH!
Or maybe not.
*mumbles* Do i even have enough money? Hmmmmm....
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts =)
