Sony revealed in the PS Classic announcement five of the 20 PlayStation Classic games. The new model comes nearly 24 years after the debut of the original PlayStation that arrived in December 1994.

Among other titles to be featured on Sony's new system are Ridge Racer Type 4, the role-playing game Wild Arms and first-person platformer Jumping Flash.

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

Following the success of Nintendo's mini NES and SNES consoles, Sony is looking to capitalize on the trend with the all-new PlayStation Classic.

The console has been somewhat modernized to keep up with the times, but it still gets you the retro gaming experience you want. As with those machines, the PlayStation Classic will not be able to download further titles.

The PlayStation Classic launches in North America, Europe, and Japan on December 3, 2018 for $99, €99, and 9,980 yen.


The PlayStation Classic will be out December 3 in Australia carrying a RRP of $149.99 AUD.

Nintendo have rather ingeniously cornered the nostalgic hardware market over the past few years with the release of their NES and SNES Minis. For our own Matt Goldberg, well, you can check out his list of the 25 games that would make for great PlayStation mini-console revivals.

With the classic, Sony is taking a page from Nintendo's playbook.

PlayStation Classic is launching in Japan, the United States and Europe, with a UK price of £90. There were a lot of great games on the original PlayStation, so narrowing the Classic to just 20 seems like a hard task.

The PlayStation that started it all returns. The company has also retained the original grip handles to deliver the same ergonomic design that was first available on the original PlayStation controllers.

The PlayStation Classic is powered by USB cable, meaning that any port capable of 5W out, or via a USB-to-AC plug, is capable of powering the console. Also, there is a USB cable.
