Anyone know when this sale starts? Midnight on the 17? 8am on the 18?

I'll buy it once it costs the same price of a standard movie ticket.

I bought one for $40 over the weekend. Do they do price adjustments at Best Buy?

Does anyone know why this is heavily discounted? I mean, this was going for $120 preorder a few months back.

What is wrong with this console!

AC power adapter? C'mon Sony, no wall plug power adapter?
It's much easier just to plug it into one of your TV's USB ports.
includes ANALOG controllers? WTH? Not even Dual Shock controllers.
Technically, since there are no thumbsticks, they're "digital" controllers.

Many things are wrong with it. You should have no problem finding a negative review on Google telling you everything you might want to know.

In brief: the games don't work particularly well, and the selection isn't very good. (The Nintendo classic consoles, in contrast, included an excellent selection of games, and they work close enough to the real thing for most people.)

Basically the emulation wasn't properly setup, they used PAL versions for certain games, not the greatest selection of games. With modding you can fix all that, security on this console was super easy to break.

Do not forget that you will need a USB wall charger as that is not provided. There is a good deal on USB wall charger here: https://forums.redflagdeals.com/primeca ... 9-2278789/
I remember the outrage at that one. They should've thrown one in, but I don't have a problem since most people have one kicking around. It was more serious not including one with the 3DS XL since it's proprietary.

I bought one from Wal-Mart on Thursday night.

Picked up a cheap SanDisk USB flash drive and set up autobleem on Friday night, and must have put 5 or 6 hours into some games over the course of the weekend. Once you mod it, this is a steal and I will probably grab a second one to keep as a backup.

Search up some reviews, out of the box this thing has a host of problems and weak game selection. The only saving grace is you can mod it to emulate more games and systems, similar to NES / SNES classic.

Other than Puzzle Fighter, there isn't a single game in there that I would care to play.

Wouldn't even pick it up for $10.
