Owners and admirers of the original console will immediately recognise the PlayStation Classic, though it is 45 per cent smaller than the original (as compared in the image above).

Set to arrive on store shelves on December 3, 2018 (24 years after the release of the original PlayStation), the mini console will come with two replica controllers in the box, along with an HDMI cable and a USB cable.

More games will be announced in time (Cool Boarders please Mr Sony). Make sure you pre-order the PlayStation Classic console. Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms will all come loaded right on the console.

Sony has announced the PlayStation Classic which is a tiny PS1 console that will come pre-installed with 20 games and two controllers.

The PlayStation Classic is around half the size of the original and is due to launch on 3 December.

With three major third-party PS1 games locked down thus far, the PS Classic seems poised to capitalize on the console's massive range of '90s developer support. You do get a virtual card to save your game progress.

As for the console buttons, well they're still useful.

The PlayStation Classic is now available for pre-order at select retailers across the USA and Canada.

PlayStation Classic is going for an RRP of £89.99 / €99.99 / $99.99.

The announcement continues a trend of big-name gaming firms releasing miniature versions of classic products.

It looks like a smaller version of the original PlayStation, released in 1994, but ditches the disc drive in favour for a storage system containing the games.

With all the hype around the NES and SNES Classics, it was really only a matter of time before Sony jumped on the bandwagon.

It's interesting to see Sony launch a product that is clearly aiming to succeed in the exact same areas as Nintendo's recent machines, with the "Mini" console concept starting to become a well-understood - and nearly expected - thing.
