Original KQ prices
« on: March 25, 2015, 07:52:02 PM »
When KQ5 was released, it was priced at $59.95 in 1990 money. Today, using an inflation calculator, that would price it at around $100.

Despite this, KQ5 sold 1.5 million copies. Quite a feat considering the price.

Yes, and?

I mean, that's somewhat interesting, but... okay?

Just that the game was extremely expensive yet still managed to be a big success; it's a testament to just how popular King's Quest and adventure games in general were circa 1990. I just found it an interesting fact, there was no need to get passive-aggressive.
