Sony PlayStation Classic

Sony is jumping into the nostalgia bandwagon as the company has announced the “PlayStation Classic,” which should please fans who dug the NES and SNES Mini!

In the press release, Sony states it is 45 percent smaller on the sides, and 80 percent smaller in volume than the original PlayStation console. It will come with 20 PlayStation games like: Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash!, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, and more.

It will launch this December 3 for a cool $100!  Check out the trailer below, as well as the official spec sheet, along with the official screenshots. However, there’s a big issue here: the AC adaptor is sold separately!
