  • PlayStation Classic mini retro console is launching in time for Christmas

Among other titles to be featured on Sony's new system are Ridge Racer Type 4, the role-playing game Wild Arms and first-person platformer Jumping Flash.

The PlayStation Classic will include two original PS1 controllers and a HDMI cable, and cost €99.99 (about £90, United Kingdom price TBA).

In all, the PlayStation Classic will feature 20 pre-loaded games. Every platform holder has been peddling their retro wares for years in new and "exciting" formats, usually in non-backward compatible form, ensuring that you need to buy five versions of the same game to play it everywhere. It will go on sale in the USA market as well as Canada starting December 3.

By Sony's estimates, the PlayStation Classic is 45 percent smaller than the original PS1 - note, this is very different from the PS One, which was a smaller redesign of the original console from the turn of the century.

The mini version will come with 20 retro titles, including Final Fantasy VII and Tekken 3. 25 years after PlayStation 1In late 1994, Sony introduced its first PlayStation console.

Google to shut down Inbox by Gmail
It used the same account and showed the same data but in a special interface that brought many new ideas on how email could work. Updates were, however, not common as Google focused more attention on the Gmail service to detriment of the Inbox email app.

Nearly ten years after ceasing production, the first Sony console is making a return of sorts as the PlayStation Classic according to a post on the PlayStation Blog. Like the Nintendo classics, this system is intended for folks who have fond memories of PlayStation but who may not game on a regular basis.

PlayStation Classic includes an HDMI™ cable for connecting to external displays such as TV monitors, and a USB cable which needs to be connected to a commercially sold USB AC Adaptor*4 for power supply from the plug. A complete roster of games will be announced soon, including more "fan favorites", according to the release.

The PlayStation Classic will surely be a success for Sony.
