Sony has announced the PlayStation Classic, which will release on December 3 with 20 pre-loaded games, including Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Ridge Racer Type 4 and more.
25 years after the release of the original PlayStation, Sony will be bringing back the original PlayStation experience through the PlayStation Classic – a mini version of the original PlayStation in similar fashion as Nintendo’s NES and SNES Classic Mini.
“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”, Sony writes. “Long-time fans will appreciate the nostalgia that comes with rediscovering the games they know and love, while gamers who might be new to the platform can enjoy the groundbreaking PlayStation console experience that started it all. All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format.”
The mini-console will come with a HDMI-cable, a USB cable, and two PlayStation controllers for local multiplayer within compatible titles. In addition, the Classic will use a virtual memory card for saving. PlayStation Classic will be release on December 3, the launch date of the original PlayStation back in 1994, for $99.99/€99.
As said, the console will come with 20 pre-loaded games, including Final Fantasy VII, TEKKEN 3, R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, Jumping Flash!, Wild Arms. More games are yet to be announced.
