Sony PlayStation Classic Retro Console

Sep 19, 2018

Category: Tech

Across the history of video games, there have been a few monumental game-changing consoles, like the Atari 2600, the NES, and (of course) the original PlayStation. While the first two have already seen extremely successful revivals, the latter is finally getting one, too. Allow us to introduce the PlayStation Classic.

While this new edition looks spot-on like the original, appearances can be a bit deceiving. For instance, the PlayStation Classic is actually 45% smaller than the original. Similarly, rather than requiring game discs in order to play, this one has 20 games built right in — with a list of legendary titles that includes the likes of Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms. It also comes with a classic controller that’s styled pretty much exactly like the original, it has built-in digital memory cards to save your progress on every game, and it features an HDMI port for hi-res output. It will be available December 3, 2018, for $100.

Purchase: $100
