Sony announces a tiny PlayStation Classic pre-loaded with games

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". Sony has a huge catalog of games to pull from for this mini-console.

Mini versions of classic consoles seem to be all the rage as companies look to tap into some serious nostalgia. It has been nearly 25 years since the original PlayStation was launched, says Sony.

Unsurprisingly, the accompanying controllers are roughly as big as the classic console's shell.

White was overwhelmed by the crowd's reaction to her walking up to the podium, even bowing to the stars. The surprise speech was over all too soon, and James Corden took the stage afterward.

Well, we're now looking at the fruits of Sony's labour with the official PlayStation Classic, which was announced today with a December 3, 2018 release date and launch RRP of £89.99/$99.99 in the United Kingdom and USA respectively.

On top of the console are the original buttons which work, mostly, as you would expect. We assume that Sony will reveal the full list of the 20 PlayStation Classic games closer to release in December.

You can check out the trailer for the PlayStation Classic console below, which offers a few additional nuggets of information, such as how the "RESET" button is now used to "suspend" games, and the "OPEN" button is used to change the "Virtual Disc". However, unlike the original PlayStation that used dedicated cartridges, the PlayStation Classic is based on more advanced technologies that bring onboard storage and more a compact overall build that is touted to be 45 percent smaller than 1994's PlayStation. All of those games will be playable in their original format, Sony said. This includes memory cards, which implies save files will also be stored internally alongside the pre-loaded games.
