It certainly has changed. This post reminded me of something, back in 1990 when Nintendo dominated the video game market they held a world championships.

There were city championships that were held earlier in the year of 1990, the winner in each age group got $250.

In the national finals, each age group winner got a $10,000 savings bond, a 1990 Geo Metro Convertible ($9,740 MSRP), and a 40" rear projection TV (Hard to research price exactly, but I'm figuring around $2500 based on what little I found online.) So that's a total of $22490 for each winner (I'll assume they waited on the savings bond to mature to face value.) Adjusted for inflation, that is $44,085 per winner. Way less than 3 million even if you consider the total given to all 3 winners.

For some more perspective, 3 million is around the average salary in the NHL and more than the prize payout at this year's PGA championship.
