Sony Reveals The PlayStation Classic, Coming December

Share

The games that have been confirmed so far are Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, Jumping Flash, and R4 Ridge Racer Type 4.

Featuring 20 titles including Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, and more.

After the success of Nintendo's mini retro consoles, we have seen others attempt to follow in its footsteps.

The Classic is a miniaturised version of the original PlayStation - 45 percent smaller on the sides to be exact, according to Sony.

Each unit has a HDMI cable to connect to the console to your TV, a USB cable, and two controllers for multiplayer, but the AC adapter is sold separately.

Almost 25 years later (yep, it has been that long!), they've remade the console A LOT smaller and will come with all of the necessary paraphernalia to make sure it works on your big, new TV.

In case you somehow missed the announcement, Sony's releasing the PlayStation Classic, a pint-sized PSone console with a bunch of games pre-loaded.

On top of the console are the original buttons which work, mostly, as you would expect. In this case, the PlayStation's "Open" button switches between games, while its "Reset" has the familiar task of suspending play.

The PlayStation Classic will be available starting 3 December 2018, and will retail for RM429.

Sony's new mini console launches on 3rd December for £89.99 / €99.99 / $99.99 - so slightly more expensive than Nintendo's offerings have been.

The box includes two controllers in the original PS1 design - that is, with no Dual Shock vibration and no analog thumbsticks. Sony says that "all of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format", so they don't sound like they will be cut down editions.
