  • PlayStation Classic PS1 PSone

Sony copies Nintendo and announced today a PlayStation Classic console.

As we reported in May, Sony plans to release its own miniature retro games console in time for Christmas.

The release date is now set for December 3, with pre-orders available in the USA and Canada at US$99.99, but regional availability will be announced soon.

Sony says it will announce the remaining 15 games before launch later this year. It comes preloaded with 20 classic titles, including the highly popular Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.

United Kingdom pricing for the console has yet to be confirmed, with Sony setting a U.S. recommended retail price of $99.99 (around £76 excluding taxes) ahead of its launch on December 3rd 2018.

Florence: North Carolina's rivers still rising after record rain
The death came within hours of a man being found dead beside a auto amid receding floodwaters in Marshville, the paper reported. SC also set a record for most rain in a single tropical weather system, previously set by Tropical Storm Jerry in 1995.

It seems that Sony is responding to the growing trend of remaking classic consoles with pre-installed games, much like Nintendo has been doing lately.

As for the console buttons, well they're still useful. Users will get to play with or against friends with the two controllers included with the console for select supported titles. The power and reset buttons work as described but the open/eject button doesn't pop up a mini-CD/DVD lid, it just allows you to swap "virtual discs".

First, there was the NES Classic Mini, followed by the SNES Classic Mini and the C64 Mini shortly after that.

Pre-orders are available now on Best Buy's website.

Yes, just like Nintendo's new creations, this tiny PSone-inspired machine takes the form of the original model, but at 45% the size of the system that launched back in 1995.
