Sony’s whimsical and highly nostalgiac PlayStation Classic console is currently being offered at a ridiculously low price via Amazon. For just $39.99, you can relive the classic PlayStation games from yesteryear on this gorgeous plug-and-play console, or just get your first taste of what gaming used to be like if you aren’t from that era.

Like Nintendo have previously done, the PlayStation Classic is Sony’s attempt to push out an affordable plug-and-play classic console into the market which recreates the experience of interacting with an original PlayStation console. Rather than having to purchase games on a per-game basis and ultimately front the cost of that, the PlayStation Classic comes with everything that you need to get running out of the box, including a set of pre-loaded games built directly into the storage of the device.

From a design perspective, Sony has tried to replicate the same look and feel of the original console which launched into the global market 24 years ago in 1995. However, the company has managed to provide a few efficiencies by making this Classic product approximately 45% smaller than the original, and, of course, the additional positive is that it is lighter than the original release. The hardware also comes with two wired controllers, a virtual memory card, and a provided HDMI cable to get this connected to your HD television set without having to go and purchase any additional hardware.

From a games perspective, this purchase will get you the iconic Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, the extremely popular Ridge Racer 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms pre-installed and raring to go for when you get this out of the box. That means that you don’t need to spend time downloading any content or finding sites where you can purchase games or find pre-compiled ROMs. Simply take this out of the box, plug it in, and you are good to go with all of the aforementioned classic PlayStation games.

And at this price-point, it is an absolute bargain considering it has been reduced from $100. Grab it right now from the direct link below before the deal expires and the price goes back up to its original higher level.
