Sony Announces PlayStation Classic, Launches December 3

Sony Announces PlayStation Classic, Launches December 3

Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms will all come loaded right on the console.

In the United States, the PlayStation Classic will come at a retail price of $99.99, with a release date of December 3-that's the original Japanese release date of the PlayStation.

Nintendo's NES Classic Mini certainly seems to have kicked off revolution of diminutive consoles aimed at stoking the fires of nostalgia.

So far, Sony has only revealed five of the 20 games on the PlayStation Classic.

Compared to the PS1, the PlayStation Classic is 45 percent smaller.

The PlayStation Classic will include two original PS1 controllers and a HDMI cable, and cost €99.99 (about £90, United Kingdom price TBA).

Death Toll From Florence Reaches 32, Officials Say
South Carolina's governor plans to meet with top Department of Defense leaders to discuss the state's response to Florence. At its peak strength, Florence was a Category 4 hurricane, but was downgraded to tropical depression status on Sunday.


United Kingdom pricing for the console has yet to be confirmed, with Sony setting a U.S. recommended retail price of $99.99 (around £76 excluding taxes) ahead of its launch on December 3rd 2018.

It goes without saying that the PlayStation Classic is hotly tipped to be a popular stocking stuffer this year.

Here are the retailers now selling the PlayStation Classic in the UK.

The design of the Sony PlayStation Classic reminds us of the original PlayStation, and features the same colourful PlayStation logo on top as well as identical layout and package.

You'll also have two original (pre DualShock) controllers in the box. All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format. On the front the memory card slots don't operate but the console includes built-in memory for save game storage.
