Combien ca coute une console?

Le site Curmudgeon Gamer a présenté une étude sur l'évolution du prix des consoles depuis 1976.Voici le graphique en valeur relative, c'est à dire en tenant compte de l'inflation. http://curmudgeongamer.com/2006/05/history-of-console-prices-or-500-aint.html






Et donc pour ceux qui se plaignent des prix des nouvelles consoles, en voyant que la 3DO et le Neo Geo dépassent le prix qui sera proposé par la PS3, ca laisse perplexe.
Cependant la grogne du consommateur peut être largement compréhensible, car le prix élévé multiplié par le nombre de consoles vendues amenera un chiffre d'affaires et surement un bénéfice nettement supérieur à ce qu'a pu raporté une Néo Géo.
Etes vous prêt à mettre 500€ pour une PS3 ou 200€ dans une Wii qui vous apportera une nouvelle façon de jouer?Pour ma part, le choix est fait ...
