Amazon Prime Day Discounts PlayStation Classic to Its Lowest Price Ever

amazon prime day discounts playstation classic

When the PlayStation Classic originally launched, the mini-console was widely criticized for its lack of quality. The console has since been discounted heavily, with Amazon Prime Day offering the lowest price on the PlayStation Classic to date, with those interested able to pick it up for a mere $20.

At its original price of $100, it was hard to see much value in the PlayStation Classic and its lineup of games. However, at $20, the console is much more appealing. After all, $20 is much cheaper than it would cost to buy the games individually through the PlayStation Store or on the used games market. It boils down to just $1 per game, which is a steal, even though they are the inferior PAL versions.

For those tempted to pick up the PlayStation Classic now that it's been discounted to the very low price of $20, here are all the games included in the North American version:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy 7
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr. Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
  • R4: Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil: Director's Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

Overall, the lineup of PlayStation Classic games isn't really too bad, especially at such a low price. There are some legitimate classics in the lineup, including Final Fantasy 7Metal Gear Solid, and Resident Evil. And the sting of the PlayStation Classics lineup missing some of the original console's more popular games, like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon, is lessened when only paying $20 instead of $100.

There were some that had hoped Sony would eventually release a new PlayStation Classic addressing the issues with this console, but that doesn't appear to be happening. With the PlayStation Classic discounted so many times since launch, it seems like Sony's attempt at a mini-console didn't see nearly the same amount of success as Nintendo's ventures with the NES and SNES Classics. Since the PlayStation Classic didn't exactly fly off the shelf like hotcakes, it's likely that Sony is focusing on its modern consoles instead.
