Miniaturised version of iconic console includes two controllers, releases 3rd December


Almost 25 years ago, the original PlayStation was introduced to the world. Developed by then Sony Computer Entertainment, it was the first home console in video game history to ship 100 million units worldwide, offering consumers a chance to play games with real-time 3D rendered graphics for the first time in their own homes.

Today, we are so excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturised version – PlayStation Classic! The console will come preloaded with 20 classic titles, including fan-favourites such as Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, R4 Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms.






The mini console is approximately 45% smaller than the original PlayStation, and it emulates the original’s look and feel by featuring the same controllers and similar packaging.

Long-time fans will appreciate the nostalgia that comes with rediscovering the games they know and love, while gamers who might be new to the platform can enjoy the groundbreaking PlayStation console experience that started it all. All of the preloaded games will be playable in their original format.






Each unit will also come with an HDMI cable to connect to your TV, alongside two controllers for local multiplayer within compatible titles. PlayStation Classic will be available for €99.99 (RRP) on 3rd December, 2018 – a historic date for all of us at PlayStation.

Stay tuned to PlayStation Blog for the full line-up of titles coming to PlayStation Classic. There are more fan favourites, and we can’t wait to share more details in the coming months.
