the PlayStation Classic, a mini console version of the original PSOne. With Nintendo's success in selling the NES Classic and SNES Classic, this is something we should have seen coming, as the PlayStation 1 was home to many fondly remembered titles.

It will be available for purchase at select retailers on the historic date of December 3, 2018 - the same day that the OG console first launched in Japan. The new model comes nearly 24 years after the debut of the original PlayStation that arrived in December 1994. (SIE), R4 Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 (Bandai Namco Entertainment), and Wild Arms (SIE).

While we're always looking forward to the next big game and console, retro gaming is also a HUGE industry in its own right at the moment.


It will also come with a considerably smaller price tag than the full-feature PlayStation with a recommended retail price of just under $100 dollars and 100 euros.

The Playstation Classic is about half the size of the original and will come pre-loaded with 20 games from different genres.

The PlayStation was a groundbreaking machine on its original launch.


What other titles do you think should fill out the rest of the PlayStation Classic games?

And with a games library limited to 20, it is not yet clear whether the PlayStation Classic will be vulnerable to the sort of simple software hacking process that allows NES and SNES Mini owners to add unlicensed games. Regrettably, the packaging won't include a power plug adapter which is required for the device to function. Hopefully more fan-favorite games will be announced for the upcoming system soon.

One expert said nostalgia was driving interest in retro consoles, which offer a means of making historical video games more accessible.


With the classic, Sony is taking a page from Nintendo's playbook.
