Sony to Release Retro PlayStation Classic with 20 Games in December

Gaming giant Sony is following in Nintendo’s footsteps and bringing back its original PlayStation console nearly 25 years after its initial release as a miniature gaming device called the PlayStation Classic.

In an announcement Wednesday, the company said the device will cost $99.99 ( €99.99 / 9,980 yen / £89.99) and, similar to Nintendo’s NES and SNES Classic consoles, will come pre-loaded with 20 “genre-defining” titles, including Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, and Ridge Racer Type 4, Jumping Flash and Wild Arms.

In addition to a standard mini-PlayStation, buyers will also get two classic PS1 controllers for games that support local multiplayer when they purchase the bundle which will launch on December 3.

This is definitely great news for those longing for retro PlayStation feels and some good old fashioned Square role-playing games, even if you can already play a lot of classic PlayStation games as it is on iOS and on PC.
