Sony Announces PlayStation Classic, Launches December 3 [Update]

Here’s a neat drop you probably didn’t see coming this week: the PlayStation Classic, a mini-remake of the PS1.

Much like Nintendo’s mini-consoles, the PlayStation Classic will ship with 20 “generation-defining games”. It’ll be available from December 3, and will include Ridge Racer Type 3, Final Fantasy 7 and Tekken 3.

“The mini console is approximately 45% smaller than the original PlayStation, and it emulates the original’s look and feel by featuring the same controllers and similar packaging,” Sony wrote.

A blog post on the PlayStation website notes that it’ll retail for €99.99 internationally, with the full list of games to be announced later. The console will come with two controllers, connecting via HDMI.

Update: Sony’s local PR has confirmed that the PS Classic will retail for $149.99.
