You Can Buy A PlayStation Classic Console For Just £26.99

You Can Buy A PlayStation Classic Console For Just £26.99

Nostalgia doesn't come much better than the PlayStation Classic, the console that brought us all many, many happy gaming memories as we were growing up. Beating your older brother in Tekken, nose grinding your way to victory in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater or locking the butler in the fridge as Lara Croft in Tomb Raider.

Over the years, many consoles have replaced the original PlayStation, meaning yours merely gathered dust before it was eventually thrown out.

But what if we said you could relive those golden years? What if we told you Currys is selling the classic console - and that recreating the joys of your misspent youth will only set you back £27?

Currently the PlayStation Classic is being sold on the Currys website for just £26.99, down from £49.99.

The offer's arrived just in time for Father's Day, too, so you could snap one up for your old man to experience the good old days once again.

You'll remember that the original consoles were pretty clunky and took up quite a bit of space, but this one's been scaled down to make it 45 per cent smaller than the original.

Two controllers are also included - though these are full size - and you also get 20 classic PlayStation games in the box.

"Everyone has vivid memories of the first ever PlayStation - it's a piece of gaming history," the product description says.

"With the Sony PlayStation Classic you can relive all your greatest moments.

"The PlayStation Classic has all the charm of the original, it's just 45% smaller. But everything has been scaled down perfectly - the logo, buttons, and even the packaging all looks exactly as it should.

"Well, everything is smaller except the controllers - they're the exact same as back in 1994. And because you get two controllers in the box, you can play your friends or siblings just like you used to."

Reviewing the product, one happy customer wrote: "Nostalgia at its best. TEKKEN 3!!"

Another said: "Everything is fab on this, all these games included - what a great buy."

A third added: "That there is a collection of PlayStation 1 games and each game is a classic for sure."

Well, I know what my plans are this weekend.
