Guide: Where to Buy and Pre-Order the PlayStation Classic Mini Console

PlayStation Classic

Sony fans should get ready for a blast from the past because it seems that the original PlayStation is making a return in the form of PlayStation Classic, a new miniature version of the beloved classic console.

And by PlayStation games, we mean titles from the first PlayStation - launched nearly 25 years ago.

Revolutionary Japanese role-playing game "Final Fantasy VII" is joined by racing title "R4: Ridge Racer Type 4", fighting game "Tekken 3", hybrid 2D and 3D wild west adventure "Wild Arms", and first-person jump-and-run excursion "Jumping Flash".

The console comes with two replica Sony PlayStation controllers, an HDMI cable to connect the console to a television, and a USB cable for charging.

It will be available for purchase at select retailers on the historic date of December 3, 2018 - the same day that the OG console first launched in Japan.

Move over, SNES Classic, retro console releases are moving into the 16-bit era of video gaming.

The Vikings' defense pulled through on the ensuing dirve, holding Green Bay to a field goal with 2:04 left in regulation. The Vikings started overtime with the ball, but Daniel Carlson missed a long field goal - his second of the game.

The release comes almost 25 years after the original version went on sale.

The Sony PlayStation Classic, which comes with 20 preloaded "generation-defining" games, will arrive on December 3 for $100, the company Sony announced late Tuesday. The PlayStation Classic can now be preordered from GameStop and Best Buy, though more retailers may follow in the future.

With 20 games built in, including "Final Fantasy VII", the PlayStation Classic is being listed at $99 (about P5,300), $129 CAN, €99, £89 and ¥9,980.

The Playstation Classic is about half the size of the original and will come pre-loaded with 20 games from different genres. The company has, however, not offered the USB AC adapter.

Sony says they'll be announcing more details about the included games in the coming months.
