Love Retro Games? Playstation’s Classic Console is Coming


For those looking for a fix of retro-gaming, Sony has announced the Playstation Classic – a pint-sized version of the original Playstation, equipped with built-in games, controllers, and HDMI support.

While being compatible with current HD TVs, the miniaturised system also features two controllers – that are effectively exact copies of the originals – along with 20 pre-installed games, including the likes of Tekken 3, Final Fantasy VII, and Ridge Racer Type 4.

The catch? It will have no internet, PSN, or additional support – meaning that if a game isn’t on the list of 20 pre-installed games, it’s just not going to be available on this console; and there are no plans to release more games following the initial pre-installed launch titles.

The Playstation Classic will launch on 3 December with an international price of $100 (around R1,450), but official local pricing is yet to be confirmed.
