PS Classic Selling For $25 Again, Its Cheapest Price Yet
Crazy Classic Life
[The deal has expired for now, but we will update this story if it becomes available again]
Earlier this summer, we marveled as the PlayStation Classic--Sony's retro plug-and-play box, which launched at $100--became widely available for $30. That deal is trash now, and anyone who bought it should feel bad, because now you can get the PS Classic for just $25 at Amazon, which is a full 75% off the original price.
The PlayStation Classic is a retro plug-and-play console in the style of Nintendo's NES and SNES Classics, packing 20 beloved games into one small box. Those include genre-defining originals like Metal Gear Solid and Grand Theft Auto, and the breakout RPG Final Fantasy VII, for which Sony is currently deep in production on a high-profile, top-to-bottom remake. The console features an HDMI connection and two wired controllers. GameSpot's Peter Brown was disappointed by the visual fidelity and controller quality at launch in his PS Classic review, but those issues sting a lot less when you're paying $25 instead of $100, as it initially retailed.
Deals-conscious gamers will also want to get ready for Amazon Prime Day, which is coming up soon and sure to feature lots of excellent deals on gaming software and hardware. The Amazon-owned Twitch is also getting in on the event this time around, with free in-game goodies and a variety of special events for Prime subscribers.
