Tekken 2 accidentally listed for $9,999 on PS Plus Store
What would you spend on a videogame? $40? $60? $70? Price is relative to your budget, but I think most people could afford $70 – even if it were good, the game of the decade stuff.
Tekken2 is a very good game. It was released in 1995 on the original PlayStation. If you asked me to give my opinion, I would say Tekken 3 was superior, but each to its respective merits. It’s a great beat-em-up, with a kangaroo as an unlockable character and a velociraptor in the background. Tekken2 is a great game. Paying less than $10,000 on the PS Plus store would be a steal. Sony needs to explain.
IGN reported that Tekken 2 was accidentally (allegedly) listed at $9,999 on the PlayStation Plus Store in the USA. This is around PS8,200 in the UK. Sony implemented the PS Plus tiers in the last few days, and this was the moment when things went wrong.
The listing was correct quickly, but it wasn’t before many Twitter users noticed the price increase. Katsuhiro Harada (creator of Tekken) even joined the fray to express his approval. He wrote, “WHAT A MARVELOUS PRICE SONYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.”
Classic titles such as Tekken2 were added to the PS Plus Store, available to Premium tier subscribers. The game is not available for purchase on PS4 or PS5.
It is not known if anyone was able to purchase it at that price or if they would be eligible for a refund. It would be nice if it were. You might be right. There are better ways to spend 10 million than on a 27-year-old game, but you can do what you want.
