Sony Preparing a PlayStation Classic
Sony has announced that it will be releasing a miniature version of the original PlayStation, known as the PlayStation Classic. At 45% the size of the original system, the console will feature several modern conveniences and twenty pre-loaded games, five of which have been announced: Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms. Additional games will be announced in the coming months before the system’s release on December 3, 2018. The system will retail for $99.99.
The PlayStation Classic will connect to TVs via an HDMI output and will also come with a USB cable to power the system. An AC Power adapter will not be included with the package. The same buttons from the original remain, though the functions of the Reset and Open buttons have changed. Reset will now suspend games while the Open button will change the Virtual Disc. A second controller will be included for games with supported multiplayer.
