Sony Announces PlayStation Classic for your Must-Have’s for Christmas


After the success of the Nintendo NES and SNES Mini’s, we couldn’t help want to fill out our retro console collection with mini-versions of our favourite consoles. With SEGA already releasing “retro” editions of their famous consoles from your childhood, Sony has officially entered the fray with the PS1 Mini aka PlayStation Classic.

Much like Nintendo’s edition, the new Sony entry is modelled after the original console but 45% smaller coming in at 149 x 33 x 105mm small and a mere 170 grams. The new console will be preloaded with 20 PS1 classics which will be revealed between now and the December release date. Games that have already been announced include:

  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Jumping Flash
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Tekken 3
  • Wild Arms

The console will be available for pre-order later today via EBGames, JB Hifi and other retailers for $149.99 AUD for a December 3rd release date.

Much like the NES and SNES mini’s the PlayStation Classic will be a limited run so don’t hesitate if you want to make sure you get one for Christmas. You can check out the full announcement trailer below.
