In an attempt to emulate the successes of Nintendo's NES Classic Mini and SNES Classic Mini, Sony unveiled the PlayStation Classic, just in time for Christmas in 2018. Since then, the plug and play mini console has dropped considerably in price, dropping as low as $40 (£45) in some cases. While we rarely see these kinds of costs around the holiday period, there are PlayStation Classic deals to be had. 

Looking and playing like the original PlayStation, the Classic is 45% smaller than the original and comes pre-loaded with 20 games, playable in their original format. You'll find the full lineup of titles available just below. 

The PlayStation Classic comes with two replica controllers in the box, along with an HDMI cable and a USB cable. It needs a USB AC adapter for power though, and this isn't included in the box so you'll need to get one of those separately, or use the 5V charger from a phone or tablet.

The cheapest prices currently available

Platform: Original Sony PlayStation | Release date: December 3rd 2018 | Games: 20 bundled as standard | Controllers: Two replica wired PlayStation control pads | Model name: SCPH-1000R | Power: USB

The launch price of the PlayStation Classic was $99.99 in the US, £89.99 in the UK and $149.99 in Australia, but we can do better than that for you as you've probably seen above. The original PlayStation was the first console in history to sell more than 100 million units, so there are a lot of people out there who hold this console close to their hearts and will jump at the chance of taking a stroll down memory lane.
