Hannacek Posted June 6, 2018 Share Posted June 6, 2018 (edited) Software IMHO is what creates the memories, the nostalgia. It gives personality to the console. And collectors will spend more time chasing after carts/tapes/disks than they do consoles simply because there is more. It even works that way for emulation too! Hardware went for less, because once you own a Commodore 64, Atari 2600, NES, etc. you don't need to buy another one. However, when you have one game or one piece of software, you want another game, and another one, and you want to complete your collection in whatever way you define a complete collection. There are more units of hardware made, then units of software produced, for obvious reasons, making the hardware more common and less expensive, and the software less common, and more valuable. The Exception to this being that Atari produced more Pac Man games than Atari console that existed at the time, assuming people would buy the Atari 2600 just to play Pac Man.
