Sony announced a miniature console similar to Nintendo’s NES and SNES Classic Editions. The mini-console will launch on December 3 at an MSRP of $99.99 and will come pre-loaded with 20 games, 5 of which have already been revealed. As of right now, Sony has shown Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, Jumping Flash, and Ridge Racer Type 4. They promise other “legendary titles” to be announced prior to release.
Sony’s mini-console is 45% smaller than the original PlayStation. Similar to Nintendo’s Classic offerings, Sony has attempted to mimic the console’s original packaging as much as possible. Each PlayStation Classic comes with the console, two original controllers, an HDMI cable, and a USB cable. Interestingly, the console does not include an AC adapter, so you’ll have to snag one from a phone charger or something in that vein. The controllers are also pre-Dualshock (sorry Ape Escape fans).
The PlayStation Classic launches on December 3, the same day the PlayStation launched in Japan, at an MSRP of $99.99. Pre orders are currently available at Best Buy and Gamestop. Other retailers like Amazon, Walmart, and Target should soon follow.
