Sony Reveals The PlayStation Classic, Coming December

PlayStation Classic mini retro console is launching in time for Christmas

The PlayStation Classic is said to be 45% smaller than the original PlayStation, and you can plainly see the difference in the images below.

For obvious size-related reasons, you wont be able to use accessories designed for the original PlayStation with it. The console will come with 20 pre-installed games and two controllers.

Mini versions of classic consoles seem to be all the rage as companies look to tap into some serious nostalgia.

This $99.99 system, shrunken roughly 45 percent from the original PS1's size, will reach worldwide store shelves on December 3. It will go on sale in the United States market as well as Canada starting December 3.

Bill Belichick remains mum on Josh Gordon trade
Gordon's barely been active for years, unable to build on his breakout 2013 campaign and battling years of substance abuse. All-world talent isn't enough to make a player great but the Patriots know that Gordon has that talent.

United Kingdom pricing for the console has yet to be confirmed, with Sony setting a USA recommended retail price of $99.99 (around £76 excluding taxes) ahead of its launch on December 3rd 2018. The price of the PlayStation Classic is notably higher than the $80 SNES Classic and $60 NES Classic Edition. It should show up in the Indian market as well, given that Sony has an official presence here - unlike Nintendo.

The biggest difference from the NES Classic, at least as of press time, is that the device hasn't yet sold out at American retailers such as Best Buy and GameStop. FYI.

Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the PlayStation Classic as the latest plug and play miniature console featuring 20 games including Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, and on December 3. Sony says that "all of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format", so they don't sound like they will be cut down editions. The machine will have a virtual memory card that will allow you to save your game data directly to the console. Also, there is a USB cable.
