The PlayStation Classic – what is it, where to pre-order, which games come with it?

Following in the footsteps of Nintendo releasing classic versions of their consoles, Sony’s getting in on the act by releasing the PlayStation Classic this December 3rd. A mini PlayStation based off the console’s original model, it’ll come with 20 built in games and is sure to be a popular gift this Christmas and will be available from Amazon for £89.99 in the UK.

 

Where to pre-order the PlayStation Classic

In the UK:

In the US

The PlayStation Classic is a miniaturised version of the original model PlayStation with two controllers based on the original PS1 controllers (that is to say, not the DualShock ones with analogue sticks) so you can play with friends right from the box. In addition, the PlayStation Classic connects to your TV using the much more modern HDMI standard so after you get yourself a USB compatible AC adaptor – which is not included, although a cable is – you should be able to crack right on with diving headfirst into some nostalgic fun with any of the 20 included titles.

The 20 included original PlayStation titles included with the PlayStation Classic are:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr. Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

The console comes out on December 3rd 2018 and will retail for around £90 in the UK and $100 in the US.
