Sony Will Release Retro-Themed PlayStation Classic

Steve Porter / September 20, 2018

No doubt due to the stunning success of the Super Nintendo Classic, Sony has announced a retro-themed PlayStation Classic. Based on the original PlayStation first released in 1995, the PlayStation Classic will come bundled with twenty of the best-selling console’s most popular games.

The PlayStation Classic is a downsized version of the original loaded with 20 amazing titles; thus far, Sony has announced the inclusion of Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms. In addition to games, the Classic will come with two controllers, a USB power cable, and an HDMI cable. Unfortunately, Sony has not seen fit to include an AC power adaptor, which is a little weird. Perhaps it’s aimed for use on computer monitors instead of the TV—even though the whole point of classic consoles was playing with your friends! (Remember when other human beings visited your house?)

The PlayStation Classic is wrapped up in retro-themed packaging with a price sticker of just $99.99. Just give us Spyro and we’ll be happy!
