Not one to be outdone by Nintendo and SNK in their respective quests to weaponize nostalgia and charging people for it, Sony PlayStation announces its PlayStation Classic mini console a few days before Tokyo Game Show 2018.

Here’s what we’re getting:

  • A small PlayStation One mini console with an HDMI output and a USB cable that connects to a power source. The size is 149x33x105mm.
  • Two PSOne controllers.
  • Video output of 720p and 480p, just like the old days.
  • A price tag of SG$139/RM429.

So what games are we getting? Well, PlayStation said there are 20, featuring:

  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Tekken 3
  • Wild Arms

The rest of the 16 titles will be announced soon. Let’s hope us retro nuts get the following games to look back to. A wishlist if you will…

  • Winback
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tomba! 2
  • Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
  • Vagrant Story
  • Xenogears
  • Brave Fencer Musashi
  • Twisted Metal 2
  • Parappa The Rapper

While we wonder, how about more promo pictures of the device in question? We know a ton of people who want to get their hands on this bad boy. We also know a few others who want to play the high-cost reseller/scalping game, to which we say to you: f*** off.
