Amazon and Walmart are currently offering the Sony PlayStation Classic micro-console for US $30, its lowest price ever. The console is pre-loaded with 20 original PlayStation titles but can be easily modded to load several other retro emulators. Sony has also cut prices on controllers and several games.

The PlayStation Classic was a massive missed opportunity for Sony. While there were numerous issues with the micro-console at launch, the PlayStation Classic still offers a decent value. There are a few excellent games onboard, and hacking the device into a retro emulation box is fairly straightforward. At its $100 MSRP, the PS Classic may be a hard pill to swallow, but a 70% discount makes the console much more appetizing.

Amazon and Walmart are both selling the PlayStation Classic for US $29.99 now, its lowest price ever. The deal is part of Sony’s Days of Play 2019 E3 sales event. The PlayStation Classic is probably the best deal here; at $30, you can nab a decent little box onto which you can easily load other retro emulators and ROMs.

Sony is also offering a 12-month PlayStation Plus membership at Amazon for $40. Interested buyers can also bundle a year-long membership with a $50 gift card for $87.99 at NewEgg.

Also on sale are the 1 TB model of the PlayStation 4 Slim ($300), the 1 TB model of the PlayStation 4 Pro ($350), a PSVR bundle with Blood & Truth and Everybody's Golf VR, PlayStation 4 controllers for $40 each, and a smattering of games.

Not too shabby for the PlayStation fans among us.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
