Ebuyer ran the calculations using the 1995 retail price of the PlayStation in Britain to calculate how much you would pay for the same product in two decades. Some might argue that the original PlayStation is worthless, with classics such as Gran Turismo and Final Fantasy VII.

Don’t be afraid. We love to put a number on things that are significant emotionally to show their material value. The PlayStation retailed for $299 in 1995. It would have cost $783 in 2020.
Cor. This is not the most expensive PlayStation. The Net Yarozeis the development version of this console. It allows users to play their games and make improvements before they are released. There are many colours available for the Net Yaroze, with the white model selling at $6,500 on auctions.
Sony was recently criticised for terminating a female employee after she complained about the discrimination she had experienced in its offices.
