Sony unveils mini PlayStation Classic


Nearly 25 years after releasing the original, Sony revealed it's bringing back its PlayStation One console. The new Playstation Classic will be much smaller and come preloaded with 20 classic titles, the company said online Wednesday.

Eric Lempel, senior vice president of PlayStation WorldWide Marketing, made the announcement on PlayStation's website.

"The mini console is approximately 45 percent smaller than the original PlayStation, and it emulates the original's look and feel by featuring similar controllers and packaging," Lempel wrote. "All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format."

Among the games will be Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Wild Arms and 15 other classic titles.

The PlayStation Classic will be available starting on December 3 for $99.99. However, the mini console is already available for pre-order at select retailers.

Sony joins Nintendo in the market for nostalgic gamers after their wildly successful sales with NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the old console.
