Sony announces PlayStation Classic console which will include Final Fantasy VII

It’s that time of year again when a miniature retro Nintendo console should be hitting the shelves and people have been expecting to hear of a Nintendo 64 Mini but nothing has been announced.

Instead Sony revealed the exciting news that there will be a miniature version of the original PlayStation with its original 1994 design.

Not many more things can be described to me as nostalgic than the booting up sounds of the PlayStation which send shivers down my spine every time I hear them.

The console which is due to hit shelves December 3 will feature 20 built-in games including the iconic Square Enix title Final Fantasy VII and Namco’s Tekken 3.

There are currently three other confirmed titles which are Ridge Racer Type 4, Jumping Flash! And Wild Arms.

The console is set to be priced at £89.99 and will feature two traditional PlayStation controllers without joy-sticks and will be inputed into TV sets via a HDMI cable like the retro Nintendo consoles.

The PlayStation Classic will still feature its disc eject button, but as the games are pre-installed, its function when pressed will change one game to another.

When it comes to the PlayStation there are an endless amount of titles that spring to mind which could feature on the console.

Crash Bandicoot, Spyro The Dragon, Croc: Legend of the Gobbos, PaRappa The Rapper, Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey, Dino Crisis, Metal Gear Solid, Gran Turismo and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night are just a few big names that could feature from an endlessly great catalogue!
