    That didn't take long for people and companies to start reducing it in price

    Hopefully we see a great PS2 classic one day and they learn from the mistakes.

    Or re-release this one and it be an improved version.

    I actually just bought an nes classic, but it hasn't arrived yet. I want to see if I like it, then buy the snes counterpart. however, I still like to play games on the original hardware with original game/controllers, if possible. I think I'm still stuck on that damn world 3 dungeon (dark world) in a link to the past. :-p

    Good luck to guy/gal that gonna select best 20 games for that. :D Is hard for me to throw out something from top 50, i can't imagine releasing classic like that with only 20 games.

    I'm not sure if I'll be able to return my playstation classic. they say 14 days, but what about black friday and christmas?

    oh, btw, I got my classic today. I haven't opened it yet. it's sitting on the carpet next to retron 5 (ton a cheap mat). :-p

    speaking of the retron 5, I actually got a response from them this time, and within a day. I inquired about the ac adapter, considering it comes with several plug adapters. ;)

    That would be hard to choose, Have some included and open it up to downloadables (give a few open game downloads also on purchase) or even use a "memory card" (as a storage device) to include other game packs that can be bought in stores. Include some and then allow for a PSN connection to DL more and also memory cards for new games.

    Have it compatible with the PS4 (or maybe a future PS5) so it can interact with it as well. Like a console add-on type of things and maybe even go all out with it as well could be an approach.

    we have success! I was able to return the system even though I had preordered it like two months ago. on a side note, I also returned crash bandicoot (bought it digitally from the eshop) and super smash bros. ultimate (unopened). I plan to buy that one digitally too. :)

    I wouldn't even play that, you can make a much better one yourself using as Raspberry Pi and an old PSX case with the PSU for less than £100, plays way more stuff and you can use your PS3 and 4 controllers with it using the USB cables or you can add a bluetooth adaptor to it for wireless play as long as you can get the controllers Bluetooth addresses.

    The PSOne Classic is worth using..... for Target Practice..... :rolling:

    Technically yes, and if we follow that track further, we can end in conclusion that the best choice is tiny PC like NUC, BRIX etc. But... PSC have lovely case which nothing could replace. Admit that. :D

    Lets do a list of what can you get with 60$ alternative for the PlayStation Classic:

    1# - Original PlayStation + Controller (1 or more) + Accessories + Games = 20/40€ on average
    2# - PlayStation2 (Phat/Slim) + Controller (1 or more) + Accessories + Games = 20/60€ on average
    3# - PlayStation3 (Phat/Slim/Super Slim) + Controller + Games = 40/60€ on average (HDD capacity prices may vary)
    4# - PlayStation Portable + Games + Accessories + Games = 30/60€ on average
    5# - PlayStation Vita + Memcard (If you are lucky) + Accessories =40/60€ on average
    6# - PlayStation TV + Accessories = 20/60€ on average
    7# - Rasberry Pie3 = 5/20€ on average
    8# - Cheap Android Phones - (2014/15 Flagships) - 60€ on average

    Its still worth 60€ for a PlayStation Classic, let that sink in for a moment :)

    well, you could say that sony did one thing right: the playstation classic contains two controllers. I own both the nes and psx classics, and it's a bit disappointing. the cable for the nes classic is also short as hell. I had to buy extension cables for the retron 5. however, the original nes controllers were short. I bought extension cables for those too. :D

    I got mine new and including tax, waaaay cheaper! :D

    IMG-20190121-WA0035.jpeg

    39€ INCLUDING 19% TAX! So currently ~44.34$ including tax...

    In it's original state it might not be worth it...
    But in a hacked state it is worth it, tho'. ;)


    I would NEVER have bought it for 100€ or even 59€...
