PlayStation Classic Announced and Dated

PlayStation Classic mini retro console is launching in time for Christmas

"Today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturized version - PlayStation Classic!".

The console is around half the size of the original PlayStation and comes with two classic controllers so you can batter your mates on Tekken.

It's interesting to see Sony launch a product that is clearly aiming to succeed in the exact same areas as Nintendo's recent machines, with the "Mini" console concept starting to become a well-understood - and nearly expected - thing.

Sony has confirmed it is to follow Nintendo into the nostalgia-driven market for miniature replica consoles, launching a PlayStation Classic featuring 20 pre-loaded games in time for Christmas.

How much smaller is it than the original PlayStation?

The device will arrive on December 3-24 years after the launch of the original-and cost $99.99 (or €99.99/£89.99). Users will get to play with or against friends with the two controllers included with the console for select supported titles. The power and reset buttons work as described but the open/eject button doesn't pop up a mini-CD/DVD lid, it just allows you to swap "virtual discs". The mini machine is set to release on 3rd December 2018, and pre-order pages are beginning to pop up across the web.

Overall, the announcement of the PlayStation Classic came as an unexpected surprise and a very welcome one for some fans. On the front the memory card slots don't operate but the console includes built-in memory for save game storage.
