PS Classic Available For Only $20 At Best Buy, Target (US)

How low can it go?


The PlayStation Classic didn't impress many fans when it released in December 2018, and its price quickly dropped from $100 to $60 USD less than a month after it hit the market. Ever since, Sony's retro console has continued to drop in price and hit what may be its lowest price yet, $20, during Amazon Prime Day 2019. Now, it seems Best Buy has decided to keep that deal going, as the retailer has once again dropped the price of the PlayStation Classic to $20 this week. [Update: Target is now offering the PS Classic for $20 too.]

PlayStation Classic launched following the massive success of Nintendo's NES and SNES Classics, but failed to capture the same level of hype due to several disappointing aspects of the mini console, such as its limited quantity of games and sub-par graphics. "The debate over the selected games aside, using the PS Classic feels like partaking in a rough recreation of the original PlayStation experience," wrote GameSpot's Peter Brown in his PS Classic review. "And if you've spent any time with Nintendo's Classic consoles, you'll see the user experience here for what it is: just good enough. The PS Classic doesn't feel like a celebration of PlayStation's formative years the way Nintendo's systems do. Nor is it a smart adaptation of a capable emulator working behind the scenes."

That said, $20 is a considerably lower asking price than $100 or even $60. For fans of the original PlayStation and its games, such as Tekken 3, Metal Gear Solid, or Resident Evil, the PS Classic might finally be worth it. In addition to the mini console, you'll also receive an HDMI cable, two wired controllers, and a virtual memory card. Check out the full list of pre-loaded games included below.
