PlayStation unveils the PlayStation Classic, a mini version of the original console

The PlayStation Classic is about 45% smaller than the original PlayStation according to PlayStation Blog. Late Tuesday evening, Sony officially announced that it would introduce its own old-school console offering, the PlayStation Classic.

Sony notes that all of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original formats. For $99, you get a device that can be hooked up to modern TVs via HDMI, two wired controllers, and 20 preloaded PS games.

Over the last couple of years, Nintendo has had great success with its Classic Mini console launches. The console is available for preorder and will cost around $99.99 USD/$129.99 CAN and will be released on December 3, 2018, just in time for a nostalgia-heavy Christmas.

It stands to reason that there will be similar excitement behind the launch of the PlayStation Classic.

Sony's original PlayStation quickly dominated the home video game market after its release in 1994, with the compact disc technology allowing for games with richer graphics. The NES Classic and SNES Classic were both met with a lot of enthusiasm at launch, with the NES Classic being notoriously hard to find for much of its original retail run.

The PlayStation Classic can be pre-ordered right now.

Naturally, a nostalgic announcement like this had the internet awash with reactions ranging from generous doses of snark to demands for specific games to be included in the 20-game lineup.

It ships with a pair of controllers that are like those of the original console, although one glaring controller omission is a lack of analog control sticks.
