Think console prices are high now?
The Curmudgeon Gamer has a great set of charts showing the price of game consoles in both absolute dollars and adjusted for inflation.

It turns out that the Atari 2600 ($659), Intellivision ($825), Atari 5200 ($683 ), Odyssey ($612), Neo Geo ($993) and 3DO ($967) would all be more expensive, when adjusted for inflation (the numbers noted in parantheses above), than the Playstation 3 which will retail for $499 and $599.

Check out the full charts here.
