Sony announces PlayStation One Classic that comes pre-loaded with 20 games

Sony says the included game lineup includes Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3 (yes!), Ridge Racer Type 4, Wild Arms, and Jumping Flash.

- "Almost 25 years ago, the original PlayStation was introduced to the world".

The PlayStation Classic will cost £89.99 in the United Kingdom ($99.99 US) and come with 20 pre-loaded games. Built to a scale some 45 percent smaller than its inspiration, and naturally lacking the CD-ROM of its predecessor, the device comes with 20 pre-loaded games and two wired controllers. PlayStation Classic will be available*1 at a manufacturer's suggested retail price of 9,980 yen in Japan, $ 99 Dollars in North America and € 99 in Europe.

The PlayStation Classic comes with two controllers out of the box, which are identical in design (aside from their USB connectors) to the original PlayStation Controller.

Sony knows you need much more of a nostalgia boost than the remastered Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot games.

Sony joins Nintendo in the market for nostalgic gamers after their wildly successful sales with NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the old console.

The Classic will have its modern twists with a HDMI and USB cable, while the "Open" button located on the bottom right will operate a virtual disc which allows players to select from the 20 games stored.

It is available for pre-order now ahead of its release on December 3 - exactly 24 years after the original release date for the console.

It is shipping for $99.99 in the United States, while the United Kingdom version costs just under £89.99.

It subsequently released its 1990 Super Nintendo console. Of course, we've also seen that a Sega Mega Drive Mini is in the works, too.

Sony's PlayStation raised the bar for home console systems when it hit shelves in 1994, selling 100 million units worldwide.
