Sony to release PlayStation Classic with 20 retro games

Sony has announced that the PlayStation Classic, a mini version of the console originally released in 1994, is hitting store shelves this December. It will cost $100 and come with 20 games, including “Final Fantasy VII,” “Jumping Flash,” “Ridge Racer Type 4,” “Tekken 3,” and “Wild Arms,” Sony announced. The other 15 games haven’t been revealed yet. Sony is following in the footsteps of Nintendo, which in 2016 released the wildly successful NES Classic Edition, a mini version of the Nintendo Entertainment System that came with 30 games.

The NES Classic has been such a hit that in June 2018, it actually outsold the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. Nintendo followed it up with the Super NES Classic Edition, which was so popular that pre-orders sold out minutes after they went live. It remains to be seen whether the PlayStation Classic will be as hard-to-get an item, but you can at least attempt to buy one on December 3rd.
