With the success that Nintendo saw with the launch of the NES and SNES Classic systems, it wasn’t a surprise to see other companies follow suit with similar console relaunches of their own. Now it looks like Sony wants in on the fun as the company has officially announced the PlayStation Classic.
Designed and shaped like the original PlayStation console, this version will be similar to Nintendo’s Classic systems. It will be smaller than the original and will come preloaded with 20 classic titles which includes the likes of Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.
There will also be bundled controllers for the console that according to Sony, will mimic the look and feel of the original as well. Sony has plans to launch the console on the 3rd of December, 2018 where it will be priced at $100. The package will include a pair of controllers, a USB cable, a HDMI controller, and the console itself.
Unfortunately the games loaded onto the console are fixed meaning that you can’t add games later, which means that you’re pretty much stuck with whatever Sony has given you. However we suppose the point of such consoles are to relive the classics so it’s not necessarily a bad thing. We imagine that it will be extremely popular at launch, so maybe those who are interested will want to make sure to pre-order it to avoid disappointment.
