With gamers desperate to buy the best video game consoles, the video game console developers are making a huge profit launching the high-end pricey products. Although most middle class parents would balk at the price, affluent parents usually do not have any qualms about buying the best things for their kids, notwithstanding the hefty price. Hence, when the PlayStation was launched for $300 in 1995, which when adjusted at current prices is around $460, there was no sign of sale of the popular video game console plummeting. However, the expensive PlayStation and Xbox models are not the sole exorbitantly priced video consoles in the market. The most expensive video game console is the Phillips CDi launched in 1991, valued at $1,200.
