I feel like lately...

the older consoles haven't really been dropping in price like they did back in the day.

Xbox 360 came out in 2005 (was just discontinued in 2016) and is still fetching almost a $100 for a console.

(I collect Sega Saturn games currently and have since the late 90s, that system is in a similar category in my head. Games used to be cheap but now, even the bad not super common games go for $60+ CIB)

        When the consoles are cheap because they're outdated. There's really not a XBOX360 replacement, is there? You hit a certain level of hardware and the differences just aren't as large. Wow, with this... more

          churning out cookie cutter games using the same or similar game engines these days as well that doesn't help the situation. I can understand as with how complex new games are these days, building a... more
