Its been almost 25 yers since the first Playstation launched. A lot of things have changed over the last two and half decades, but the demand for classic games is rising. To match both Nintendo’s and Sega’s offerings, Sony is throwing its hat in the classic gaming market with the Playstation Classic.
The Playstation Classic mirrors the design of the original Playstation but is 45% smaller and comes pre-loaded with 20 “classic titles” including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.
The Playstation Classic will cost you $99.99 USD and will be available on December 3rd 2018, the 25th year anniversary of he original Playstation console. Pre-orders are available from “select retailers” but no retailers were listed as of the time of this writing.
The Playstation Classic comes with an HDMI cable, 2 controllers for game that support local multiplayer and a USB cable to power the device. An AC adapter will be available separately for an extra cost.
