PlayStation Classic is Sony's new throwback games console

PlayStation Classic is Sony's new throwback games console

It's a small PlayStation one, pre-loaded with twenty classic PlayStation 1 games, including "Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms and 17 other legendary titles".

The Classic is approximately 45 percent smaller than the original PlayStation, but Sony has emulated the same layout and grey colourway you've grown to know and love. The new model comes nearly 24 years after the debut of the original PlayStation that arrived in December 1994.

After rival Nintendo found huge success with the NES Classic Mini and the SNES Classic Mini, Sony has announced it is also jumping on the mini retro console bandwagon.

"Today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturized version - PlayStation Classic!". It looks pretty cute - with the same button set up as the original console, but at 55 per cent of its size.

Select titles will support local multiplayer gameplay using the two controllers. In this case, the PlayStation's "Open" button switches between games, while its "Reset" has the familiar task of suspending play.

The PlayStation Classic, which is nearly half the size of the original machine, hits shelves on December 3 - the 24th anniversary of the console's release.

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. PlayStation had a dedicated following in its time, so many fans will likely want to get this remaster of the PlayStation that started it all. The machine will have a virtual memory card that will allow you to save your game data directly to the console. All of those games will be playable in their original format, Sony said.
