Sony to Launch PlayStation Classic, a Mini Version of the OG Console

  • PlayStation Classic PS1 PSone

Even better, games such as Tekken 3 (if you play as Eddy Gordo you are an absolute weapon) (yes I play as Eddy Gordo sometimes, mostly Hwoarang) and the incredible Final Fantasy VII have already been confirmed.

Games aside, it will also come with two controllers, a HDMI cable to connect it to your TV, and a USB cable. The PlayStation Classic will include two controllers.

Sony has announced five so far - Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, Jumping Flash! and Wild Arms.

That omission is thought to rule out 1999's iconic "Ape Escape" from the retro console's 15 unannounced games, as it relied upon the presence of analog controls.

Sony's PlayStation Classic will become available from 3 December 2018.

While phones now seem to be getting bigger (hello iPhone X), Sony has followed the precedent set by Nintendo's NES and SNES Classic editions and made the re-release notably smaller.

How much will the PlayStation Classic cost?

Sony is cashing in on Nintendo's nostalgia racket by announcing the adorable PlayStation Classic. The new model comes nearly 24 years after the debut of the original PlayStation that arrived in December 1994. Like the Nintendo classics, this system is intended for folks who have fond memories of PlayStation but who may not game on a regular basis.

Some 25 years after the OG PlayStation made it debut, Sony has revealed the PlayStation Classic, a shrunken down take on the Japanese electronics giant's gaming hardware debut, which comes pre-loaded with 25 classic games. The company has, however, not offered the USB AC adapter.

Sony said it will release more details in the coming months.
