Sony’s PlayStation Classic will fit in your hand and cost you $100

In Europe Western-made games such as WipEout, Tomb Raider, and Crash Bandicoot are just as closely associated with the original PlayStation and it's unclear yet whether they'll be included.

The PlayStation Classic will definitely come with Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash!, R4 Ride Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild ARMs, all of which are Japanese-made games.

Following the success of Nintendo's nostalgia-tinged hardware releases, Sony is launching its own mini version of a classic console.

In all, the PlayStation Classic will feature 20 pre-loaded games.

It goes without saying that the PlayStation Classic is hotly tipped to be a popular stocking stuffer this year.


Compared to the PS1, the PlayStation Classic is 45 percent smaller.

PlayStation Classic is going for an RRP of £89.99 / €99.99 / $99.99. We've reached out to Sony India for clarity on the India launch of the PlayStation Classic and will update this space accordingly.

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. All of those games will be playable in their original format, Sony said. It also comes with an HDMI cable to plug into your TV and a "virtual memory card" for saving games.

Sony provides two full size replicas of the PS1 original controller so they aren't DualShock designs, and thus you don't get the analogue sticks or vibration. The company has, however, not offered the USB AC adapter.
