Yeah, I'm heading to pick mine up in a few hours, as it arrived a day or two early, so glad I got one with free shipping to store, as I would probably have opted out if I had to pay. LOL

I lucked out at my local Kroger while rummaging around in one of those random last chance dump bins and found two Cell Candy Wall Chargers for $3 each and two Cell Candy 5 foot Extension Cables for $1.79 each.  I've been using one of the Cell Candy Wall Chargers on my own Classic for the past few weeks, and it works fine.  Of course, the deal that I found at my local Kroger was a manager's special and is not a nationwide deal, so don't go running out to Kroger stores expecting to find it.

i'd make sure they were at least 5v 2a. you're eventually gonna get "brown out" on your usb ports. do the otg.

PS Classic back in stock for shipping at Target for $19.99 as of now. There is a shipping fee if you do not have the Target Red Card though.

 

https://www.target.c...le/-/A-54140637

Thanks for the heads-up! I kept checking the website, and it was back in stock this morning - ordered one for myself.

Just checked and it's still showing stock on target.com.

 

OP, maybe change the name of the thread to PlayStation Classic Deals... or something so we can just consolidate the discussion to this thread as the deals come and go.

Thanks.  Didn't expect you to see the request so I pm'd you since it showed you offline.

The PlayStation Classic Redditors finally compiled information about the system's specs.  

  • SoC Mediatek 8167A Quad Core Cortex-A35 1.5 GHz / PowerVR GE8300

  • Audio chip: Mediatek MT6392A

  • Motherboard Sony LM-11 (1-984-020-11)

  • RAM 1GB DDR3-1866 Samsung K4B4G1646E-BYMA

  • eMMC 5.1 16 GB KLMAG1JETD-B041

  • Dimensions: 149 x 33 x 105 mm / Weight: 170 grams

  • Resolution: 720p e 480p via HDMI

  • Power: 5V 1A

Not too bad for a $20 machine.

That's why I am satisfied for once with emulated Playstation games. I never could get my Raspberry Pis to run them to my liking and now I have over 500 PS1 games on multiple USB drives to play on the Playstation Classic. I did not put any other retro systems on it as I have those on my NES and SNES Classics.

Picked one of these up at Meijer for $15 today.  Thought I'd missed out on picking one of these up for cheap.

Overall a pretty beefy little system.  I still need to work on mine a bit more to see which options work the best.

 I snagged 2 more of these from Meijer for $14.99 each. Pair with cheap USB sticks to make nice gifts for a few people I know.

That's why I bought seven of them.  When I gave my stepdad a Classic for his birthday, I included a step-by-step instruction sheet for him in the package that explained how to use Autobleem on the flash drive, and he was able to figure out how everything worked relatively easily.  So, I'll probably do the same thing in the future.

Where's a good place to get those instructions from?

Looks like dead now, was that price this morning for a few hours.

Aw man. I would've grabbed one at $20 from AZ. Target still shows $19.99 online but OOS all around my area.

I just want to point out that this thread seems to be the one with the most cheerful CAGs.  Whether it's price updates whenever the PlayStation Classic goes back down to $20 or just advice on how to make the damn thing useful, it does my heart glad to see everyone helping each other out.  It's like the early days of Cheapassgamer are back again.

Wish you could get one of the N64 Blitz games working on this sucker, the PS1 versions are pretty ugly. The first Wayne Gretzky thankfully runs fine.

I haven’t tried the Dreamcast side of things out yet, but they were best on DC. There’s also the 2k series of sports titles to check out.

Dreamcast has been confirmed as hit or miss on the PlayStation Classic.  PSP is also hit or miss.  And I wouldn't waste time with GameCube, Saturn, or 3DO either.

So I picked one up today.

Some of these games are still great, specifically Rayman and driller.

The only issue I have is that the controller is so short I have to stand close to the freaking tv.

Altogether happy with this as I have only rear horrible reviews where my expectations were very low.

You can buy USB extension cables.  Or there are a bunch of ways to use other controllers including wireless ones with the system.  But the system would have to be hacked first.  I'd check out the PlayStation Classic thread on Reddit for more information on how to enable those.

Check your nearest GameStop. If they still have their YoK extension cables - which bombed alongside the system - they are on clearance as low as $2.99 and have plugs molded to match the PlayStation style.
