Sony unveils PlayStation Classic mini console

15 Play Station Classic Games That Should Be Included on the Play Station Classic

It's a small PlayStation one, pre-loaded with twenty classic PlayStation 1 games, including "Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms and 17 other legendary titles".

The console will be shipped in its classic packaging with two replica controllers and slightly enhanced graphics compared to the original version.

It will come with 20 pre-loaded games, the first of which were revealed in the trailer.

The PlayStation Classic, which is nearly half the size of the original machine, hits shelves on December 3 - the 24th anniversary of the console's release.

Over the last couple of years, Nintendo has had great success with its Classic Mini console launches. Fashioned as a mini-Playstation, the console will hold twenty classic PlayStation games.

Eden Hazard ranks Chelsea teammate among the world's best strikers
Hazard is already up to six goals in five games, a third of the way to matching his best tally at Chelsea in the 2016-17 season. He is an unorthodox striker, and part of a dying breed, but as Hazard says, he is arguably the best target man in the world.

Players will also have to make do with wired controllers, but at least the package will come with two so you can jump on local multiplayer with a friend.

Sony's very first console was the PlayStation, a somewhat unassuming grey brick that sported a blazing fast 33.8 MHz processor and a hefty 2 MB of RAM.

The new, mini version of the PSOne is almost half the size of the original console, but looks identical to the grey box that so many 90s kids fell in love with.

Just for scale, here's all the power of the original system resting in a human hand. The PlayStation Classic is powered with a micro USB port, and Sony does include the micro to Type-A cable in the box, but sadly, you must bring your own USB Type-A AC adaptor to the party. Also, there is a USB cable.

Despite huge advances in video-game technology, retro gaming continues to be popular with nostalgic fans who perhaps don't have the time or energy to plough 100 hours into the latest blockbusting open-world adventure.
