Australian Retail Summed Up In One Perfect Image

Hey, anyone feel like paying $59.95 for an Xbox memory card? That’s an original Xbox memory card. Not an Xbox One memory card (those don’t exist) not an Xbox 360 memory card — an original Xbox memory card, like for the first Xbox.

This picture was taken today, in a David Jones store in Australia. It is there, right now. It is on the store shelves. You can totally buy it… for $59.95.

I mean really. What is going on here. I’m flabbergasted. I’ve seen some crazy retail shenanigans in my time, particularly with big mainstream retailers and video games, but this might just take the wooden spoon.

Borderline unbelievable.

Thanks to Skitzo12 for the image
