When in 1980s?
$125 in 1980 is $317.46 in 2005.
$125 in 1989 is $194.84 in 2005.
If you spent $125 in 2005 for that title, that would be the same as spending $80.19 in 1989 dollars or $49.22 in 1980 dollars.
So even if we were to spend $35 for a new Blu-ray title in 2005 (I know they were are not out yet!) that would have been like spending $22.45 in 1989 dollars or $13.78 in 1980 dollars.
