PlayStation Classic Is Down To $54 Right Now

Retro charm on the cheap.

12 Comments

The PlayStation Classic was pricier than some other retro consoles at $100, but bargain hunters who were waiting for the right price may want to take advantage of it now. The mini-console is down to just over $50 now, half off the original price.

Amazon has the system listed for $54, which is likely a temporary price. Other stores may be willing to price match depending on their policies, so check if another one could be more convenient for you. This is the lowest price we've seen yet on the mini-console, though just after the holidays it was marked down to $60 across the board.

The PlayStation Classic packages the mini-console with a controller and 20 games, including bona fide classics like Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil Director's Cut, and Final Fantasy VII. The library on the whole was marked as a disappointment in our review, and the emulation quality and UI presentation is uneven.

"I'd like nothing more than to tell you that the PS Classic is a pleasant surprise, that it will match your excitement and then some," wrote critic Peter Brown. "This sadly isn't the case, and short of Sony refreshing it, or the hacking community breaking it open and reconfiguring it, the PS Classic may never be more than a puny PlayStation with good looks."
