Sony's PlayStation Classic Retro Console Is Just $30 With This Hot Deal

Sony had hoped to capture the imaginations of gamers across the globe with its PlayStation Classic in the same way that Nintendo did with the NES Classic and SNES Classic. However, many gamers balked at the game lineup, its price tag, and emulation performance (among other things).

Needless to say, within a month of launch the price of the PlayStation Classic dropped to $70, and by the end of 2018, it could be had for less than $50. Now, Sony appears to be trying to clear these consoles out with a massive fire sale at some of the nation's leading e-tailers. The going price is now a very appealing $29.99.


Even with its flaws, $30 is a more than a fair price to pay for the gaming console, which is quite hackable if you don't mind getting your fingernails dirty. Here is the lineup of games that comes preinstalled on the console:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

If you're feeling adventurous, numerous tutorials on the web will show you how to install some of your favorite PlayStation games on the console to greatly expand that list. And on the plus side, the console does come with two controllers in the box, so you won't have to go out and purchase an additional controller like you do with the NES Classic Edition for two-player action.

You can purchase the Sony PlayStation Classic for $29.99 from Amazon, Best Buy, Target, and Walmart.
