Playstation dropped a nostalgia bomb this morning with the announcement of the Playstation Classic!
Almost 25 years ago, the original PlayStation was introduced to the world. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment, it was the first home console in video game history to ship 100 million units worldwide, offering consumers a chance to play games with real-time 3D rendered graphics in their homes for the first time.
Today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturized version – PlayStation Classic! The console will come pre-loaded with 20 classic titles, including fan-favorites such as Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.
I’m more excited about the home-brew hacking options that are going to be coming out along with this, as the emulators for most PS1/2 games are spotty at best. By the time the PS2 classic drops, we might finally have some stability!
The Playstation Classic launches December 3rd, with a price tag of 99.99.
