It’s easy to find yourself tired of all the remakes of classic consoles these days, but the PlayStation was so iconic that we think we’ll let Sony off.

The PlayStation, the first time around, was the console that changed the home video game world for so many of us, and we’re pretty sure we wouldn’t have the industry we have today if it wasn’t for Sony. So the prospect of picking up a Sony PlayStation Classic at nearly 50% off is the kind of deal that it is impossible to pass up.

Sony’s classic console may not have all of the classic games some might have liked, but what is there is pretty impressive. Games like Destruction Derby, Final Fantasy VII, and Twisted Metal tickle our nostalgia bone just so, and according to other reports it isn’t all that difficult to get other games onto there, either.

We’re not going to suggest hacking your PlayStation Classic, but at this price there isn’t all that much to lose, and the potential for even more hours of fun is very real indeed.

We don’t know how long this deal is going to be around for, so if you’ve ever thought that a classic PlayStation might be in your future, now is the time to make it your present, too.

You’ll get yourself the mini console, as well as two wired controllers, a virtual memory card, and an HDMI cable for connecting the thing to your newfangled big screen TV.
