Revolutionary Japanese role-playing game "Final Fantasy VII" is joined by racing title "R4: Ridge Racer Type 4", fighting game "Tekken 3", hybrid 2D and 3D wild west adventure "Wild Arms", and first-person jump-and-run excursion "Jumping Flash". There'll be 20 bundled titles in total, but those five are the only ones announced at the moment.
The new, retro system comes with an HDMI cable and a USB cable to power it (optional AC adapter sold separately). This year, Sony will be trying its hand at a similar thing with the PlayStation Classic Mini, featuring 20 games from the PS1 era.
The PlayStation Classic launches in North America, Europe, and Japan on December 3, 2018 for $99, €99, and 9,980 yen.
This $99.99 system, shrunken roughly 45 percent from the original PS1's size, will reach worldwide store shelves on December 3.
PlayStation Classic launches this December, comes with 20 games including Final Fantasy VII
The PlayStation Classic arrives on December 3, and that's a notable date.
As well as featuring numerous original games players will have two controllers based on the original pre-DualShock model. This includes memory cards, which implies save files will also be stored internally alongside the pre-loaded games. It follows the immensely popular NES Classic and SNES Classic, both of which were big hits for rival Nintendo. This game tally and controller count is much closer to Nintendo's SNES Mini, presumably learning (via Nintendo's experimentation) that having two controllers in the box pleases fans a great deal more than only having one. No word on how much supply Sony is looking to offer for the initial shipment, but pre-orders are now open at various retailers for those looking to pick up an early Christmas present.
Sony says you can preorder the console right away, to reserve yours for launch day.
