Sony has announced the launch of the PlayStation Classic. The console is set to launch on December 3rd at the retail price of £89.99 and will include twenty retro titles, amongst them Final Fantasy VII and 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 groundbreaking PlayStation console experience that started it all. All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format.’
The date marks the launch of the original PlayStation, but this new system will come equipped with HDMI, bringing the console up-to-date with modern display technology. The system is expected to sell as well as Nintendo’s own range of classic consoles.
