On the heels of the massive success of Nintendo’s classic lineup, PlayStation has announced their own classic console with the PlayStation Classic!
From the PS Blog:
“Today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturized version – PlayStation Classic! The console will come pre-loaded with 20 classic titles, including fan-favorites such as Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.”
“Available for pre-order at select retailers across the US and CAN, each unit will also come with an HDMI cable to connect to their TV, a USB cable, and two controllers for local multiplayer within compatible titles. PlayStation Classic will be available for $99.99 USD (MSRP) / $129.99 CAN (MSRP) on December 3, 2018.”
More titles will be announced in the future and I hope they have some big ones waiting because I’m not exactly blown away by that offering so far. It’s also interesting to note that the AC adapter will be sold separately in a bewildering move. Most of us have those USB power sockets, but at that MSRP, I really feel like it should have been included. It’s also a bit peculiar that there are no DualShock controllers included.
