And I thought paying $124.95 for a game on the PlayStation 5 was a blunder!
PlayStation Plus 2.0 is currently rolling out worldwide and launched in the US just a few days ago. Here in Australia we have to wait another week to get our hands on the new tiered service. However, with the launch of the service in the US, another crazy blunder has emerged.
Tekken 2, the 1996 fighting game released for the PlayStation 1 was one of the first titles announced as part of the PlayStation Classics series. It’s definitely a classic, definitely an iconic game. If you were to ask me what I think the game is worth digitally, I’d say around $9998 ($AU14526).
I’d be wrong, unfortunately, because according to some eagle-eyed users on Twitter, Tekken 2 is actually worth $US9999 ($AU14527) if the PlayStation Store has anything to offer.
They accidentally priced Tekken 2 at $10,000. I can’t, this shit is so funny pic.twitter.com/ImKHeAUTgo

As you can see, due to some kind of bug in the PlayStation Store, Tekken 2 is listed for $US9999 ($AU14527). At such a price, I’d hope the game would not only feature the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 versions, but suck me in until it was completed!
As the icing on the cake, of course, Katsuhiro Harada, the current game director of the Tekken series and an all round very cool guy, saw the award and praised Sony for their mistake.
WHAT A GREAT PRICE SONYYYYYYYYY https://t.co/pRgjEY8gla

Harada then followed up on this tweet by saying that a PlayStation 1 era arcade stick he signed is now also worth $US9999 ($AU14527). The man is busy retrieving his casual bag, and I compliment him on it.
