Sony announces a tiny PlayStation Classic pre-loaded with games

PlayStation Classic mini retro console is launching in time for Christmas

Similar to Sony, Nintendo played the nostalgia card by launching the SNES Classic Mini past year and the NES Classic Edition in July 2016. Its size is about 45% smaller on the sides and 80% smaller in volume than the original title. Sony notes that it has been almost 25 years since that original PlayStation landed, with it eventually becoming the first game console in history to ship 100 million units globally.

PlayStation's own dinky console will come pre-loaded with 20 games, which Sony says will be "playable in their original format".

PlayStation are releasing a new version of an old console and now we know what we want for Christmas

The design of the console is faithful to the original - even featuring a disk eject button, despite the lack of an actual disk reader. If Sony can deliver on the games side, this looks like its going to be a raucous success. Arriving just before Christmas, the console's release date - 3rd December - coincides with the original console's launch 24 years ago. The price of the PlayStation Classic is notably higher than the $80 SNES Classic and $60 NES Classic Edition. Pre-loaded*3 with 20 PlayStation games*4 such as Final Fantasy VII (Square Enix), Jumping Flash!

OnePlus developing its own Smart TV
At present, we feel the current market of TVs is still feeling quite traditional in their functionality and experience. OnePlus seems to be focusing on "intelligent connectivity" with the OnePlus TV that is likely to be backed by 5G.

You'll also have two original (pre DualShock) controllers in the box. No power adapter is included.

Between updated versions of classics (this new take of Theme Hospital is already eating away all of our free time), to entire collections getting re-released (like all of these), people love replaying old games. Plus, yes, we all want to play as Cloud again, but maybe Sony will throw us a bone and give us an Oddworld game.
