Where It Costs 39,900,000,000,000 Dollars For a Sony PS3

There is a country in the world today whereby its new currency and its inflation rate will put a 39,900,000,000,000 dollar price tag on a 80GB Sony Playstation 3 (based on the USD 399 price tag on Amazon).

According to TIME magazine, Zimbabwe recently released its new $100 billion banknote, which is equivalent to
one U.S. dollar.

With the country’s inflation rate being at 2.2 million percent, the new banknote can get you 3 eggs at a local Zimbabwean market (picture taken from Wikipedia)
