Sony, like Nintendo, has realised that there is money to be made in the nostalgia market - although nostalgia is not what it used to be.

According to Sony's press release, the console will come with 20 preloaded games, including classics such as "Final Fantasy VII", "Jumping Flash", "Ridge Racer Type 4", "Tekken 3", and "Wild Arms". Supporting the idea that Sony may not be very confident in its lineup is the fact that it has so far only announced five of the twenty games.

"All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format", the company said in an announcement post on the PlayStation Blog.

The PlayStation Classic will be 45% smaller than it's original namesake, and will retail for NZD$169.99. For that price, customers will get the system and two controllers.

Following in the footsteps of Nintendo and its phenomenally popular NES and SNES "Classic Mini" consoles, the PlayStation Classic is an adorable shrunk down version of the original machine which connects to modern TVs via HDMI and is powered by USB. It was also the first console in history to ship 100 million units worldwide.

The Classic's release will coincide with the anniversary of the PlayStation's original release back in 1994 - "almost 25 years ago". The console is available for preorder and will cost around $99.99 USD/$129.99 CAN and will be released on December 3, 2018, just in time for a nostalgia-heavy Christmas.
