atari 360

So I don't know how I ran across it, but I found this on Flickr.

Which made me think... adjusted for inflation, how did the price of Atari game systems and cartridges compare to today's games:

1979 price (Atari)  inflation adjusted1986 price (NES)  inflation adjusted  2006 product
Games$19.95$62.18$39.95$68.87$49.95 - $59.95

That's pretty big bucks for Brain Games.
