$600 on a near launch ps3 (got it in June). In reality though I had enough gamestop gift cards saved up that I only paid $130 out of pocket for the system and one game (VF5).

I flip pretty much everything on eBay to offset the cost as much as I can. I'm usually surprised by how much people pay on the secondary market.

My original launch 60GB PS3 was a christmas gift from a cousin so I'm not too sure if that counts.

My PC is the winner costing me all together like $1,300 or so a few years back.

Then there's my laptop from 2012 which cost me about $950.

Finally, there's my PS4 that cost me $380 back in 2014 for the GTA5 and TLoU bundle.

An imported 3do. $1000 at the time, but I was convinced it was the future....to make things worse my TV didn't have a scart plug, so I ended up buying a new TV just so I could play Return fire. Which at the time was brilliant split screen fun.

My PC as a whole I guess but one item alone would be my TV's... My Q8F set me back £1299 and my MU7000 set my back £799, my PC probably cost me total including peripherals and monitor around £2300-2400.

Not sure if it was the most expensive, but paying like $300 for the 32x back in the day, was my biggest gaming mistake ever.

My televisions, 1500€ for the 65" ks7005 and 3500€ for the 75" Q9FN. My New PC was 1200€, but it still lacks a GPU.

Just gonna mention pc hardware, I've spent more on TV's.

Most expensive PC hardware item I bought recently is probably my GTX 1080 back in Sept 2017. It was $740 canadian before tax, $836 with tax.

Felt like a bit of a hit to buy it, but I felt a little better about it after a couple months because bit coin mining fade went crazy right after that and the prices skyrocketed for over a year.

It was a good investment since I did have to buy it to replace my 970 gtx which was having some problems running 2560x1080 on some newer games.

Probably the next big expensive hardware piece i'll eventually buy this year might be a Ryzen 3950x which is likely around $750 USD so i'd imagine will cost me well over 1000 canadian. I may actually wait on that a bit for a sale to save a bit if i can.

I caught possibly the most expensive inflation-adjusted system of all time at a bargain baesment price once in the 90s and twice in the 00s.

And thanks to Macklemore, it will be along time before you find these kind of deals again, because the goodwills are wise to this, and most of their video games are on their own auciotn sites like shopgoodwill.com .

Bally Astrocade, retail cost of $299 in 1977. Inflation cost today: $1200

A used game store that didn’t carry Colecovision in the SNES days gave me advice. A Retro game shop off the beaten path if I’m a little more desperate, and thrift stores and garage sales for bargians. I found a Bally with a box, 4 controls and a couple cartridges for $5 in 1997.

I also found extra Intellivisions. but sold the to the Video Game exchange for barely anything. Then I heard on the Rush Limbaugh show an ad for Ebay. I bought a Godzilla 1984 VHS with the original Japanese spoken language and has no Raymond Burr scenes. If you read the subtitles, they were more critical of Americans than the American cut. When I thought a used toy store offered a low price. i tried to sell on ebay 10x their prosoed price.

I found a Second Astorcade in 2001 with 4 controls, and lots of games including Muncher and Blast Droids for $5.

So Now I had 2. if I knew my friend was collecting classics like a couple years later, I wouid have offered it to him for $50. SInce I didn’t know i sold it on ebay for $300.

Later my Astrocade lost its color. Luckily a new shop was offering retro games had an Astrocade for $60. Considering the ebay prikce s $300 this was a bargain. Plus I sold my B/W Astrocade clearly stating the flaw and got $25 for it.
