What by chance were you playing?

Nothing at the time that I got the message.  The system was just on while I was on the phone.  Before that, it was a few games of Bust-A-Move '99 (aka Puzzle Bobble 3).  But I would assume that the system doesn't have much to cool it off since Sony cut costs wherever it possibly could.  Remember, this is the company that didn't include an AC adapter in its own retro game system.

Hey everyone. Right NOW. Gamestop has the PSX Classic for 20$ New and 18$ Used.

Amazon is 30$

 

Do NOT trust the Gamestop website or app. Employee told me that due to a new inventory system. Its messed up. Showing things out of stock when it is in stock. So Call your Gamestop to check for it. If they dont have it. Ask about Web in store. Otherwise youd pay 10$ in shipping at gs.com.

 

Just got mine for 18$ at Gamestop. =D Now to mod this thing...

 

Someone should update the OP too...

did you really opt for used to save $2?

 

big concern would be they prolly jacked up the 2nd port or failed power mod.

Do the used versions typically include the 2nd controller? A store near me had one in stock but I only saw 1 controller in the case.

Because most of the people in this thread bought the system new, there's no way to know for sure what GameStop's official policy is on selling the PlayStation Classic used.  But I would say it's worth it to pay $20 instead of $18 to get the new system with the second controller that's supposed to be in the box with it.

I think we overestimate how much of the customer base for the PS Classic is actually trying to mod these things!

Well, I would say that people probably figured out what the system's true value is once word got out that it could be easily modded.  And, in all honesty, I think that it's so simple that most adults of reasonable intelligence can figure it out.  Otherwise, it wouldn't have sold out so quickly at Target once it hit $19.99.  That said, it is easy to brown out the system with the wrong type of AC adapter or ruin it by trying to mod it incorrectly.  So I wouldn't buy a used PlayStation Classic for $18 myself when I could buy a brand new one for $20 since there's no real way to know if someone screwed it up when they unsuccessfully tried to mod it.  And you can't tell just by turning it on.  I mean, it's $2!

And hopefully, I didn't come off in a bad way with my explanation.  But there have been reports on the PlayStation Classic Reddit thread where people have ruined their PS Classics trying to mod them because they didn't follow those simple instructions.  And we all know how negligent GameStop employees can be when it comes to inspecting systems for trade-in.  Plus, you don't know who had it before you did.  So you get a brand-new system with two controllers fresh out of the box.  I'd probably buy a used one if it was only a few bucks though as a back-up.

Sold out at Best Buy online and in stores, Target is sold out at stores around me and available online, and Walmart has limited stock online and only a few stores around me that have any in stock. This might be selling out for good in the near future.

Don't forget GameStop. According to the mobile app my GS were completely OOS the past few days. There seems to be a restock as of this week.

Also it doesn't take rocket science to mod this device. I recommend following madlittlepixel or Restalgia guides via YouTube. Just be patient with the process and don't unplug anything when your not supposed to yet.

You forgot the third "don't" - don't send anymore PMs to josekortez about the PlayStation Classic!  =;

 

In other PlayStation Classic news, it was posted on Reddit earlier that the PlayStation Vita AC adapter will work with the PlayStation Classic.  However, I'm not sure what the results will be if you use that AC adapter in conjunction with a modded PlayStation Classic.  Perhaps not good because modding seems to increase the power output.

Did the $20 sales really clear out stock out of B&M Best Buy? There were gigantic piles of these every time I went before the final drop to $20.

Yup. It seems $20 was everyone's buy price. My store moved through 80+ in under a week once it dropped that low. Of course some of those were to fulfill online order but still. :razz:

Was just going to post this.  The store next to my job had exactly two Classics on the shelf.  I don't know if they had more in the back.

When you click on the link in the ad, though, it says PS controllers and nothing about the mini system.

I can confirm that they sell the PlayStation Classic in store because I saw them there yesterday.  I have never seen a PlayStation controller at Dollar General.
