Retro Scan: Fossilised Target Gaming Advert

$80 for a PS2 game? A Dragon Ball Z game!? I'm glad these dark days are behind us. 
I found this Target snippet from 2002 while cleaning out my cupboard. Yes, it's been that long since I properly cleaned out my cupboard. It was in a box for the steering wheel you can see at the bottom for $29.95 which is compatible with PS1/2 games. For the record the wheel is absolutely terrible and I have used it about twice since I bought it. I have no idea why I kept the magazine that advertised it, but then again I did the same thing when I bought my PSone. I guess that it was just something I did when I was a kid.  


  1. $50 for a mad katz ps2 memory card. LMAO Thanks for the blast from the past. Games are still way over priced when new.

  2. Thanks for posting this. :) The PS2 is my favourite console ever. So versatile and with a games library second to none. Expensive when it was released though, but like Anonymous mentioned, games still costs a lot (but bargains can be had at Steam for example).

    Another thing I find amazing is the prices of second hand Amiga hardware. Some turbo-cards costs the same as 15 years ago, sometimes even higher!
