Sony Announces PlayStation Classic; Retails For RM429

PlayStation Classic PS1 PSone

Sony also wants to play so the company is introducing PlayStation Classic with 20 pre-installed games.

Sony hasn't released a full list of games yet, but they've confirmed that it'll include Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, R4 Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms.

The console which retails for around $60 comes with 30 games including Nintendo's famed Super Mario and Donkey Kong characters. Like the Sega and Atari mini-consoles, these should be easier to get your hands on than the limited supply NES or SNES classics. It will mark exactly 24 years since the original PlayStation console launched.

It's approximately 45 percent smaller than the original PlayStation, but emulates the iconic matte gray look of its older sibling down to a tee.

You can see a whole bunch more neat photos at the official site for the PlayStation Classic.

So far, Sony has only revealed five of the 20 games on the PlayStation Classic. The Mini NES model, which replicated the company's formative 1983 machine, sold out nearly instantly when it was launched in 2016 and was re-released early this year, outselling modern consoles such as the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. And if you're Sony and you have a beloved retro console yourself, why deny the trend? Like the Nintendo classics, this system is intended for folks who have fond memories of PlayStation but who may not game on a regular basis.

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

The other mistake Sony made is actually quite laughable - there is no AC adaptor in the box!

It connects to external displays such as TV monitors with an included HDMI cable, and it connects with a USB cable for power. The Reset button will now suspend games (pause) whilst the open button, which originally popped up the disc lid, will now change the virtual disc for you to select a new game.
