Nintendo has had a lot of success with its mini-consoles. The NES Classic was pretty hard to get soon after it was released, because of demand. It was a similar story with the SNES Classic. Both of those mini-consoles were very well received and Nintendo has sold tons of units. The fans just love them. Sony wanted to get in on the action as well so it launched the PlayStation Classic. However, its mini-console hasn’t had the same kind of success.
Just a month after Sony launched the PlayStation Classic, it has now cut the mini-console’s price considerably. It was launched for $100 and is now widely available from different online retailers for $60. That’s a 40 percent price cut just a month after its launch. That is not great news for Sony. People just don’t want it as much as the others.
The PlayStation Classic is now available for $60 from places like Amazon and Target. Sony clearly hasn’t sold as many units as it wanted to, which has forced it to cut the price.
Some fans didn’t like that Sony was limiting the device to just 20 games and it would have been hard for the company to please everyone with just 20 titles. This, plus emulation issues faced by many users and the fact that it only supports original PS1 controllers, seems to have soured fans on the PlayStation Classic.
