Last year, Sony released the PlayStation Classic, a retro console with 20 pre-installed PlayStation games.
The move was seen by many PlayStation and Nintendo fans as an effortless cash grab, made especially worse by the terrible lineup of games. The launch was a disaster as many customers canceled their pre-orders after the terrible lineup of games was revealed.
Retailers all over the world are now stuck with unsold PlayStation Classic inventory, so we are now seeing super desperate stores slashing the price by half. Unfortunately, the tactic doesn’t appear to be working:
Half the price.
Still not moving.
Saddens me since Sony would probably blame it on lack of interest rather than them putting out a half-assed product that should've been an easy as fuck sell. pic.twitter.com/cydlspAPyJ

Hopefully this serves as a lesson to Sony and other companies not to blindly copy Nintendo. At the very least, put in the effort to make a good and solid product for fans to enjoy.
