Sony plays the nostalgia card with the PlayStation Classic

Sony plays the nostalgia card with the PlayStation Classic

Of course, the biggest selling point is the games, which include Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, and Ridge Racer Type 4.

The PlayStation Classic is about 45 percent smaller than the original PlayStation, and comes pre-loaded with 20 original PS1 games.

The device will come with two controller pads and will be powered via a USB cable. First released in Japan on December 3, 1994, the PlayStation established Sony's place in the video game console market, priming them to dominate Nintendo, Sega and then-newcomers Microsoft in the subsequent generation of systems with the PlayStation 2. Supporting the idea that Sony may not be very confident in its lineup is the fact that it has so far only announced five of the twenty games. However, Sony is nailing it with the holiday release schedule, as I do think this would make the ideal gift for a relative who no longer has their original PlayStation and wants to go on a nostalgia trip over the holidays.

Here's how much Apple's new iPhone range will cost in South Africa
This means the same phone costs R7,600 more in South Africa than in the USA , not a great deal more than a return flight to NY . When we compare the screens of the iPhone XS and XR, it is obvious that the XS has better visuals.

Have you been missing the original PlayStation, with its top-loading disk drive and pale grey exterior? The AC adaptor is sold separately, though, which is a bit odd. In the USA, it sold around 800,000 in the first four months.

The release comes almost 25 years after the original version went on sale. It was also the first console in history to ship 100 million units worldwide. The console is available for preorder and will cost around $99.99 USD/$129.99 CAN and will be released on December 3, 2018, just in time for a nostalgia-heavy Christmas.
