The power of playstation returns… in mini form

Finally details have been released on one of the most open secrets in the industry. We all knew it was coming from recent patents and takedowns, but finally Sony have confirmed the Playstation Classic will be released on 3rd December for £89.99.
The date is important as it was the original Uk launch date for the Playstation way back in 1995 competing against the Sega saturn amongst others (SEGA take note… would hurt to release something other than the Megadrive once in a while)

The unit will around 40% smaller that the original machine and will come with 2 original controllers.. not dualshocks, since they came later into the devices history with 5 confirmed games so far, Final Fantasy 7, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, Jumping Flash! (A launch classic!).. speculation is abound whether Castlevania SOTN, Gran Turismo could form part of the remaining list. Rest assured though, Sony are looking at the games that made the system a global seller and should provide a broad selection to cater for all tastes.
Pre order sites are yet to go up, but should only be a matter of hours from time of writing.
