It's ironic...true, it's time for Texas Instruments to lower its prices, but thanks to the awesome TI community, it's 100 times cheaper to buy a TI-89 w/games than to buy a Game Boy w/games.  And the games for the TI-89 are better ;D
Not really. A GB over here costs about $10 now. For popular and rare games, the price adds up in the end, though :P (I saw some games at like $25 once, like Final Fantasy Legends II)

Yeah, that's where all the costs are with nintendo products. Wii, for instance, here is $200 new, while each game is $50, and each wiimote set is also $50. I only run homebrew on it though :P and netflix

Oh I meant old discontinued games/consoles, not new ones that are still on sale. Nowadays, even 360 and PS3 games are very expensive when they are popular, although the PS3 is still very expensive compared to both other consoles (which is the only other reason why I never bought one besides the lack of game variety)

I only have two wii games-wii sports and super mario galaxy-because I got mine as a gift and my parents are against video games, so Iuse homebrew too.

Anyways, its kind of scary that when you see a stack of five console games, and know they're worth $250.

True. That said, a lot of games drop to like $5-10 after a few years now, though. That's of course until they become collectables.
