And Harada loved every second of it.

With the launch of its new PlayStation Plus revamp, several older PlayStation games have been appearing on modern consoles for the first time, or at the very least outside of the old PS Now UI. That has predictably led to several interesting errors for some software, including a more than $9,000 markup on Tekken 2.

The original PlayStation classic appeared for a brief moment on the PS Store for PS4 and PS5 with a $9,999 price tag when the updated service went live on June 13 in North America. 

It flew relatively under the radar, with only a few posts pointing out the error on social media. Eventually, it found its way in front of Tekken series director, and habitual Twitter memer Katsuhiro Harada.

“WHAT A MARVELOUS PRICE SONY,” Harada said in response to the original tweet. 

Harada also continued to make jokes about the pricing, responding to another tweet with a classic fightstick with his signature on it, saying that it is also “$9,999 now.”

With the launch of the revamped PS Plus service, some classic PlayStation titles have become available for purchase outside of the subscription, but they typically will only be listed at around the $9.99 price point. This likely means the backend entry for Tekken 2 just had one additional nine added, leading to the $9,999 listing. 

The game has since been delisted as an individual purchase and is only available through the PS Plus subscription, though it may make a return as a purchasable classic in the near future once the error is corrected.
