Chris Kohler has a good post on the end of an era (that era being the last generation of gaming consoles). Humorously, looking back revealed this tidbit:
“Imagine players slapping down $.99 to buy a one-of-a-kind, fully tricked-out racing car to be the envy of their buddies,” Microsoft wrote in a 2005 press release. In Forza Motorsport 5 for the Xbox One, you can slap down cash to buy a fully tricked-out car, but it costs ninety-nine dollars.
That’s an increase slightly higher than the rate of inflation, I imagine. Welcome to the next generation of gaming, folks!
