Sony Unveils PlayStation Classic Retro Console

Nintendo 64 controller trademark from Nintendo accepted

With the PlayStation Classic's announcement this week came the exciting news of 20 classic PS1 games packed in a mini nostalgia console.

The Nintendo 64 Classic Edition might just finally be on its way.

The miniaturization craze has spread to Sony, because they've announced their own tiny retro console with the PlayStation Classic - a throwback to the original PlayStation that was first launched 24 years ago. For some, these five titles may be enough to justify the PlayStation Classic's price tag, but it's worth pointing out that 15 more games are on the way. However, it would be insane for the system to not include at least one title representing what was arguably the system's mascot, so Crash Team Racing would make for a logical way to include the ridiculous bandicoot in some capacity on the system, aside from it being a fantastic kart racing game in its own right.


And as to whether the Classic would affect any plans for other remasters or consideration for the downloading of older games on the PS4 or on future systems, the spokesperson said "No, PlayStation Classic is a separate initiative from any ports or re-releases of older titles".

As the list illustrates, the PlayStation Classic will consist of two JRPG classics in the form of Final Fantasy 7 and Wild Arms. So those of us with a handful of iPhone wall chargers lying around may be able to put one of them to good use. We're certain the PlayStation Classic will include a variety of gems, but which ones would make or break the purchase for us?
