Almost 25 years after the original PlayStation was introduced to the world, Sony has today announced the PlayStation Classic! The console will come pre-loaded with 20 classic titles, including fan-favorites such as Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Jumping Flash, R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, and Wild Arms. The full list of titles has not yet been announced.
The mini console is approximately 45% smaller than the original PlayStation, and it emulates the original’s look and feel by featuring similar controllers and packaging. All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format.
Available for pre-order at select retailers across the United States and Canada, each unit will also come with an HDMI cable to connect to their TV, a USB cable, and two controllers for local multiplayer within compatible titles. The console is powered by the USB cable, but if you need to us an AC adaptor, you’ll need one that supports 5 V, 1.0 A USB (Type A) output.
PlayStation Classic will be available for $99.99 USD (MSRP) / $129.99 CAN (MSRP) on December 3, 2018. Sony Interactive Entertainment launched the original PlayStation on December 3, 1994 in Japan.
