Sorry if perhaps it's been posted before, but... In cleaning out my inlaws house,I came across a 1982 issue of Games magazine. I browsed through it. There were 4 ads for Atari stuff. This one I looked at, turned the page, then flipped back and was like "what???". So...

 

Q: What's wrong with this picture?

 

A: Look at the picture on the PacMan box.

Heh, I think your right about that being a quick edit.

 

Something else that also strikes me....the point's been made before, but man, that Atari system was still really expensive in 1982!

 

$150 then was worth $379 in 2017 dollars!

 

I got my PS4 brand new with a game included (although only one controller) a few months ago for $250!

 

Some of the games being sold for $8, though...that's a bit better, as that's about $20 in today's money.

PS4 is no real value in today's measures. It's more or less a multitasking PC with online requirement to live on. Atari 2600 was something like non existent Emotion Engine v2 now back then.
