Get ‘Em While They’re Hot
If you were thinking of grabbing a Playstation Classic but were maybe turned off by the price, know that they’re $50 off at Amazon right now. That is, there’s a $25 discount that also comes with a $25 gift card. Of course, this is a pretty danged limited time thing, so act fast.
Not sure about the PS Classic? Well, the upside is that it’s super duper hackable thanks to Sony being somewhat lax in the security department. The downside is that the system comes with maybe a handful of decent games. Of course, for me it’s just a Final Fantasy 7 machine. I’ve spent the last week using it for that and nothing else, and I suspect this trend will continue well into the new year.
Players who aren’t into FF7 (I’m sure you exist, somewhere) can also check out Metal Gear Solid, Grand Theft Auto, Resident Evil, Rayman and Persona. There’s also a Ridge Racer game with a pretty bangin’ soundtrack if you’re looking for a portal to the late 90’s. If you don’t take advantage of this deal, the PS classic will set you back $100, which is more than either the NES or the SNES classic. You can check out the limited time deal here.
