The PlayStation Classic has not been as well-received as Nintendo's retro consoles like the NES Classic (opens in new tab), but if you grew up with one of these consoles it still might hold a special place in your heart. And now it can hold that place for much less money, which makes it even more special to me. Plus, gamers have even found a way to add your own games to the system that could give it a lot more replay-ability.

The PlayStation Classic is loaded with 20 original PlayStation games including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms. It comes with two wired controllers, so you can play with a friend, an HDMI cable, and a virtual memory card. The device is tiny, about 45% smaller than the original PlayStation, but looks nearly identical.

This is part of Sony's larger PlayStation Days of Pay sale, which has discounted PlayStation Plus subscriptions (opens in new tab) and more, so be sure to check that whole sale out as well.
