Nintendo Gamecube ($1,000)

Nintendo Gamecube was first introduced in 2001 and was yet another huge success for Nintendo. The Gamecube was Nintendo’s first step into the 3D gaming world and opened a whole new chapter for Nintendo games. The console was about $200 when it was first released and has only increased in price, but only if you have a brand-new never opened one. A brand-new Gamecube can cost you $1,000 which is pretty expensive being that you played the gaming console over 20 years ago. Unfortunately, if you have a used one, these consoles will only sell for $100 or even less depending on the usage.
