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…
- Syphon Filter
- Tomba! 2
- Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
- Vagrant Story
- 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.
