Deal expired, it's now $99.99

$39.99 @ Walmart.com.

 

3rd party sellers are cheaper, but Walmart has raised the price to $99.99!

With how many of these I see stores stuck with I think it’s safe to say it might hit $20.

Hard to tell what bombed harder last holiday; this or Starlink.

What's nuts is sony did this to themselves intentionally. Everyone saw this coming 10,000 miles away, months before release.

Well unless you plan on hacking the heck out of it, I don't see why not for that price. But, to each of their own.

I bought one for $29.50 at a YMMV Walmart clearance, even then they had a few sitting on the shelf. It’s worth that if you like the little retro consoles/want to mod it but that’s about it

PS Classic deals should only be posted if they are free.

Only because as above: it's bound to go even lower. Fire-sale lower.

It's pretty good, but its decision to be Toys To Life in 2018 is beyond baffling. And not only that, it was like Lego Dimensions levels of overpriced.

They both bombed pretty hard. Starlink is now $19.99 for PS4/XB1, and $29.99 for NSW at Target.

Not bad. To the normal buyer it was a somewhat confusing tangle of add-ons and honestly when it first launched obtaining all content digitally was considered a better deal (making the toys moot). The toys to life concept was already dead, Starlink just served to really grind in that point.

No, just no one wanted to buy a Toys to Life game and while Starlink has a clever way of not needing the toys the marketing doesn't really make that very clear. 

 

They both bombed pretty hard. Starlink is now $19.99 for PS4/XB1, and $29.99 for NSW at Target.

I picked up and returned the NSW version of Starlink over the Holiday when I decided I wouldn't have time to play it. I want that damn Arwing though and am hoping the Switch version drops to $20 soon so I can pick it up again. 

 

As for the PlayStation Classic. I picked one up at Target with the Cartwheel deal for $35 a week after Christmas. I've not really played around with it and need to add some games to it so it's worth checking out, but as a tiny PlayStation, it looks pretty cool.

Same here. Got it for $36, it's still in the box unopened. Was expecting it to be even cheaper by now.

They could eventually make it into Five Below stores at the rate it's dropping in price. I was happy to pay what I did for it though.

Good point. This will easily be big lots, tj maxx, marshall’s fodder.

Got one at Walmart. For $40 I don’t care if it drops lower, it’s so low that it’s not that big of a deal.

I’ll give modding a try.

This has to be Sony's biggest failure yet....retailers can't seem to get rid of them soon enough.

Just to think Sony tried to be successful selling this abomination with such embarrassing effort on their end with mostly slow moving pal version of those games.

I'm not surprised... it's $ony after all.

All right, I'm a buyer at $40. I'll keep it in the box for a while, the modding scene is looking pretty good and will only get better, so once it improves to where I'm comfortable modding it I'll spend a long weekend putting a ton of games on it and fixing it up to my liking :)

Every time I see dozens in stores at $59 I think of the trolls here who argued with me when I said that was a price DROP and not just a sale price a month ago. And now it’s just a game to see how low it can go. I’m betting $15 or less and ends up at tj maxx, marshalls, and/or big lots.

People love getting a deal but they're not willing to admit a product's failure, especially when they end up buying it themselves.

I'll hold out for 20 bucks if it really can be fixed with mods and can add games like the snes.classic.

 

The snes classis is a really good games machine because you can add so many games ane everything is essentially true to the originals.

Yeah, I'd love to see $20 but I don't think $15 is realistic. $25 and I would bite without waiting for less.

 

The SNES is indeed incredible. Despite a little bit of extra power I don't think the PSC would be significantly better as a mod platform regardless of price. But at $25 or less, it's worth it just for the two USB controllers - with a little collector's piece (the console) thrown in.

I'll hold out for $20 as well. I have a $10 Walmart gift card so I'll use it on that. I won't open it any time soon because I have multiple PSVs and PSTVs so I won't need it right away.

I bought a few PS TVs for $16.97 each when it was on clearance at TRU and had them stashed away in my closet. A couple years later I found out the resale value for PS TV skyrocketed. What are the chances that the PS Classics will become scarce and fetch top dollars years later lol?

Yeah, I'm holding out for $20 as well, and may think twice even then. I was just at Walmart yesterday, and the case was packed to the nuts with these things, and has been since forever. I think Sony produced these in such HUGE numbers thinking it was going to be an NES/SNES mini level seller. I see these reaching $20 easy, as it's pretty much a "broken" system, and modding is really the only saving grace, so most are waiting for the bottom, and $30 ain't it(at least not for me).

What's nuts is sony did this to themselves intentionally. Everyone saw this coming 10,000 miles away, months before release.

This could have been great with some effort, but it ended up one of the worst video game items of the last decade. Which just shows, being the industry leader means jackshit when offering a turd in pretty wrapping. Pal games in a US system is just about the poorest choices to ever be made, did they even look at what "N" did? Bighead syndrome strikes again!
