A PlayStation Classic Mini Is Coming With All Your Favourite PS1 Games

PlayStation Classic mini retro console is launching in time for Christmas PlayStation Classic launches this December, comes with 20 games including Final Fantasy VII

Nintendo's NES Classic Mini certainly seems to have kicked off revolution of diminutive consoles aimed at stoking the fires of nostalgia. This new console will be 45% smaller than the original PlayStation but look and feel exactly the same.

It will be available from 3 December, which is the same date that the very first PlayStation hit stores all those years ago. 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. There were a lot of great games on the original PlayStation, so narrowing the Classic to just 20 seems like a hard task.

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

It is shipping for $99.99 in the U.S., while the United Kingdom version costs just under £89.99.

In the United States the PlayStation Classic can be pre-ordered from BestBuy. There's no AC adaptor, which means you'll have to use the USB-C cable for power.

The console, which will feature all the original buttons, two cabled replica controllers, and a HDMI port, will cost only £89.99.

Speaking of preloaded games, we do know five of the 20 titles, including Final Fantasy VII, TEKKEN 3, R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, Jumping Flash! This game tally and controller count is much closer to Nintendo's SNES Mini, presumably learning (via Nintendo's experimentation) that having two controllers in the box pleases fans a great deal more than only having one.

We haven't got our hands on the PlayStation Classic yet and, as such, it is hard to judge just how good the system is. At $99.99, it's certainly not cheap.

Hopefully we'll hear more about the list of included games soon. 25 years after PlayStation 1In late 1994, Sony introduced its first PlayStation console.
