We weren't optimistic that the PlayStation Classic would drop below $30, but Sony made it happen as part of their Days of Play 2019 promotion. If you've been waiting for this moment, it's go time because the odds of the price going lower than this are very, very slim.

At the time of writing the PlayStation Classic is available right here at Amazon and via Walmart for $29.99, which is 70% off the original price. Supplies of this beleaguered console will be exhausted at some point, and this sale might finally put the nail in the coffin. While you're at it, you might want to check out the other offers that are up for grabs during the Days of Play event. At the top of the no-brainer list is the 1-Year PlayStation Plus membership for $39.99 deal.

The standard list of games included on the PlayStation Classic are as follows:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby

On a related note, Sega has announced the final wave of games for the Genesis Mini console, and it includes some surprises - like two additional games that bring the grand total to 42.

Highlights from the final 12 game wave include Road Rash II, Strider, Tetris, Monster World IV, and Darius. The surprise ports are definitely Monster World IV, Darius, and Tetris, which never got official releases on the original console. Tetris, for example, was only available as a super rare cartridge (only around 10 were produced) back in the '80s. You can check out the full lineup of games below, and if you like what you see you can pre-order the Sega Genesis Mini via Walmart (free 2-day shipping) and Amazon (free 2-day shipping for Prime members) with a release date set for September 19th.
