PS Classic Still On Sale For Just $30
Want to catch up on FF7 before the remake?
As another entry in Sony's US Days of Play sale in celebration of E3, retailers are offering the PlayStation Classic retro console for a record-low cost of $30, wholly half off from the current standard price of $60 (which is itself already substantially discounted from the launch price of $100). E3 2019 is in the rearview mirror, but Amazon and Best Buy still have the deal available--at this point we're starting to wonder if this is just the new 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. 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 $30 instead of $100, as it initially retailed.
Sony's Days of Play event ran from June 7 to 17, offering discounts across the board on PlayStation hardware, software, and services in celebration of E3 2019. Sony bowed out of E3 this year for the first time in recent memory, instead opting to step back and quietly prepare for the hotly-anticipated PlayStation 5 announcement while Microsoft took the spotlight in LA. PS4 fans needn't fret, however, since there were no shortage of games for the platform at the show, even if Sony itself was not.
