I am not a console gamer but I want this. It’s the retro geek in me that falls hard for this kind of thing. (I also still want my own Tamagotchi.)
Sony Computer Entertainment introduced the original PlayStation to the world in 1994.
Now, nearly 25 years later Sony announced the PlayStation Classic:
Today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturized version – PlayStation Classic! The console will come pre-loaded with 20 classic titles, including fan-favourites such as Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.
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. 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 ground breaking PlayStation console experience that started it all. All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format.
Available for pre-order at select retailers across the US and [Canada], each unit will also come with an HDMI cable to connect to their TV, a USB cable, and two controllers for local multiplayer within compatible titles. PlayStation Classic will be available for $99.99 USD (MSRP) / $129.99 CAN (MSRP) on December 3, 2018 – a historic date for all of us at PlayStation.
Visit PlayStation.com for more details on regional availability, and stay tuned to the Blog for the full lineup of titles coming to PlayStation Classic. There are more fan favorites, and we can’t wait to share more details in the coming months.
So far I have only found it for preorder at Raru, and currently we don't know what the price will be.
