Retro game console price analysis: Amazon Australia vs Australian retail

Whether you thought the Nintendo was super or you were in Sonic’s corner as a kid, we've analysed the prices of retro game consoles from Amazon Australia and other leading retailers.

Microsoft, Nintendo and Sony currently battle it out for current-generation gaming supremacy, but once upon a time, the battles were fought between Nintendo, Sega, and stretching back a little further, Atari and even Intellivision. Retro gaming consoles are still a hot property, thanks to gamers either feeling nostalgic or seeking simpler but still addictive gaming experiences. After all, classic titles such as Pac-Man, Bubble Bobble or Space Invaders never go out of style.

We’ve collected together the most popular retro game consoles in Australia, as well as the latest deals from a selection of online Australian retailers, and analysed those numbers against Amazon Australia. Retro gaming isn’t always that inexpensive, so it makes sense to save when you can.

Prices were last checked between 12 Dec 2017 and 22 Dec 2017 and may be subject to change. Prices include any discounts but exclude potential shipping charges.
