  • PlayStation Classic PS1 PSone

The console itself is modeled after the look and feel of the original PlayStation, or PS1, but is 45 percent smaller.

It's interesting to see Sony launch a product that is clearly aiming to succeed in the exact same areas as Nintendo's recent machines, with the "Mini" console concept starting to become a well-understood - and nearly expected - thing.

For obvious size-related reasons, you wont be able to use accessories designed for the original PlayStation with it.

Like Nintendo's NES Classic and SNES Classic, the PlayStation Classic comes preloaded with a slew of nostalgic hits from the system's original back catalogue. The company just announced the PlayStation Classic, a miniature version of the original PlayStation.

The PlayStation Classic's release will coincide with the anniversary of the original PlayStation which made its debut in Japan on December 3, 1994. You will, however, have to supply your own power adaptor. The PlayStation proved to be a victor for Sony, which became the first console to sell 100 million units worldwide and helped Sony dethrone the once-dominant Sega brand in the 1990s.

The RRP for the console will be €99.99 while the United Kingdom version will be priced at £89.99.
