Sony announces retro PlayStation Classic with 20 games

Sony announces retro PlayStation Classic with 20 games

Sony just recently debuted their PlayStation Classic, taking a page from the nostalgic stylings of Nintendo with their mini-editions of fan favourites from the past. It is approximately 45% smaller than the original and will be called PlayStation Classic.

Joining the bandwagon of retro game consoles, Sony has launched the PlayStation Classic. Nintendo has previously made mini versions of its NES and SNES consoles, which also included a set of pre-loaded classic games.

That will put this retro console on the market just in time for holiday shopping and with a $99.99 price, it will certainly be appealing to gamers.

It will be available from 3 December, which is the same date that the very first PlayStation hit stores all those years ago. Like the Sega and Atari mini-consoles, these should be easier to get your hands on than the limited supply NES or SNES classics.

Chiding aside, the PS Classic is sure to be a great deal, especially for those who grew up on the console.

Multiple versions of the PlayStation Classic will be offered on launch depending on which territory the system is sold in, with worldwide and Japanese versions confirmed so far.

That last variance may be a huge factor in the games that the PlayStation Classic will offer, as Sony has not provided a list of the 20 games that will appear on the console.

It seemed inevitable following Nintendo's success with their classic plug-and-play consoles loaded up with the games of yesteryear.

For obvious size-related reasons, you wont be able to use accessories designed for the original PlayStation with it. Players will also have to make do with wired controllers, but at least the package will come with two so you can jump on local multiplayer with a friend. I cant wait to play the full version game of jumping jack flash.
