After rumors and speculation of Walmart lowering the price, you can now officially order a PlayStation Classic in the US for $40 with free shipping at Amazon and (WalMart):
I think this is just about the price even classic gaming enthusiasts like myself can tolerate. In my opinion, you can look at this two ways:
- You get a cool case and two USB controllers for $40, to use with whatever you’d like.
- You now have a cheap gift for someone that doesn’t take gaming seriously, but would love a lighthearted blast of nostalgia.
For $40, I think taking the time to install BleemSync and mess around is worth it: https://modmyclassic.com/bleemsync/
Heck, you might even consider getting 8BitDo’s wireless adapter to go with it…
