Gift card doesn't show in cart, I chatted with a rep who stated it will be emailed after purchase.

 

Thomas:Thank you so much for waiting,
I have checked and the promo will be credited to you and I have reported it to the promotions team and they will add this to your account and will send you a email confirmation,
So no need to worry you will be credited the promo without any failure
Is that helpful for you?

This would normally be a no-brainer impulse-buy for me at this price, but I just can’t seem to pull the trigger.

Questioning whether it's even worth effectively $50 given the reviews.

It says it under the pictures of the system.

 

Nevermind, this was already stated.

You can only see the indication of the $25 gift card on the desktop site.

Not true. It’s under the add to cart button on mobile.

I’m going to give y’all a different spin on this.

The nostalgia is cool. I think the box console controllers etc are done very nicely.

It’s also pretty easy to hack and use a usb stick with it. I’d say for essentially $50 it’s about worth it.

I see it now on mobile too. I don't see it in the Amazon shopping app though.

This is certainly Sony's biggest failure and waste of opportunity in a nutshell....or should I say in a "mini-shell"

It should sell for 49.99 plus a $15.00 gift card then it would be about right.

I’d MAYBE consider it if it was $25 with a $25 gift card on top.

I loved the playstation 1 back in the day. Jet moto, silent hill, metal gear, etc. For whatever reason this didn't and still doesn't interest me, even for $50. I'm with Romeo, MAYBE at 25 with a 25 gift card:)

Nope. These things are just completely half assed, and everyone now knows it.

With how quickly these are being discounted already these are bound to have huge discounts eventually. 

 

$30 or under will be my buy price.

The PAL-version games they put on this thing are unplayable compared to the originals, and the emulation for the rest is also poor. Sorry, not cheap enough yet.

Amazon is such shit. I just spoke with a rep on this. They refuse to price match even within the return period. Basically need to reorder and return. I mean its not even 14 days and the return period is through 2/1/19. step it up amazon.

I've tried this in the past and they never budge. So ridiculous that they make you buy again and return, that's gotta be more expensive for them in the long run

Best Buy has really won me over for the convenience, rewards, and price matching.

I wonder if Amazon did a double match with Target and Best Buy/Gamestop and this is a mistake.

 

Either way, the PlayStation Classic was a giant failure. They were being reactive to the success of the NES and SNES Classics, saw dollar signs and threw this together without any love or care.

 

This will probably be down to $50 in no time.
