Sony has unveiled a mini version of their ultra popular PlayStation console. So, this is a mini-version of the original PlayStation, which will launch on 3rd of December 2018. This new mini version of the console will hit Nintendo’s mini versions hard we think. PlayStation Classic is about 45% less than the original console. You can see it all in the short trailer, which you can see below.

Finally Nintendo is getting a Valid competition to their mini versions of NES and SNES

Like Nintendo’s NES and SNES, PlayStation Classic comes with pre-installed games package that contains a variety of games. Sony has a total of 20 titles, but so far, the company has only confirmed five of them. They are:

  • Tekken 3
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Jumping Flash
  • Wild Arms

PlayStation Classic comes with HDMI as standard

Including all of the 20 games to be released with PlayStation Classic console. You will also get an HDMI cable and two PlayStation classic controls are also included in the package. This will allowing you to play local multiplayer with friends. The price tag is at around €100 ! Which isn’t too bad.

“Long-time fans will appreciate the nostalgia that comes with rediscovering the games they know and love, while gamers who might be new to the platform can enjoy the groundbreaking PlayStation console experience that started it all. All of the preloaded games will be playable in their original format.”

Sony promises to disclose more details, including the remaining 15 games in the coming months. PlayStation Classic will cost around 100 Euros and we do hope that it will be launched everywhere. Also we hope that Sony won’t do the same mistake as Nintendo which released, stopped and released their mini versions of NES and SNES consoles.

“Almost 25 years ago, the original PlayStation was introduced to the world. Developed by then Sony Computer Entertainment, it was the first home console in video game history to ship 100 million units worldwide, offering consumers a chance to play games with real-time 3D rendered graphics for the first time in their own homes.”

We are sort of happy that the Nintendo PlayStation never happened. You can read about what our impression was of it at the retro event in Sandefjord, Norway here.

PlayStation was a nice console and got millions of gamers to love it. The developers also loved it. So the fact is that Sony should be very happy for no co-operation with Nintendo. Sony did the right move for sure. They managed to compete in the console market with their first PlayStation console.
