Sony just launched a new console: The old PlayStation Classic

PlayStation Classic mini retro console is launching in time for Christmas

PlayStation Classic launches this December, comes with 20 games including Final Fantasy VII

The PlayStation Classic will cost $100, versus the $60 Nintendo has charged for its classic systems (and the NES Classic offered 30 games to Sony's 20).

Sony is following in the footsteps of fellow Japanese games-maker Nintendo, which has released miniature versions of two of its classic consoles in recent years.

Sony said the new (old) PlayStation is 45 percent smaller than its parent model.

California governor urges world to work together on climate change
California Governor Jerry Brown delivers his final state of the state address in Sacramento, California, U.S., January 25, 2018. His comments came a day after Trump blasted Kerry on Twitter for meeting with high-level members of the Iranian government.

Here's a blast from the past: Sony's PlayStation Classic will hit Malaysian shores on December 3 at a suggested retail price of RM429.

Naturally, a nostalgic announcement like this had the internet awash with reactions ranging from generous doses of snark to demands for specific games to be included in the 20-game lineup.

We're already well onboard the PS Classic hype train but what we really, really want is for one of the games to be football-based - preferably FIFA 99. It's slated to launch on December 3 - the same day the original first went on sale in 1994.

Russian Federation blames Israel for shootdown of military jet over Syria
Israel has warned that it will not allow Iran to establish a permanent military presence in postwar Syria. The incident triggered testy exchanges of blame between Israel and Russian Federation .

The controllers are full-size replicas of the PS1's original gamepads, not the later DualShock ones, and so don't include analog sticks or vibration. Nintendo has previously made mini versions of its NES and SNES consoles, which also included a set of pre-loaded classic games.

It doesn't look like fans will be able to play their existing CD titles, though, as the "Open" button atop the console is apparently meant for "changing virtual CDs", and the Classic's diminutive dimensions preclude room for silver discs. No word on how much supply Sony is looking to offer for the initial shipment, but pre-orders are now open at various retailers for those looking to pick up an early Christmas present.

The cost of the PlayStation Classic in the United Kingdom is £89.99 ($99.99 in the US).

The PlayStation Classic can be pre-ordered right now. Missing, so far, are Gran Turismo, the system's best selling game during its lifespan; Tomb Raider, which became a national phenomenon with the PlayStation; and fan favorite Metal Gear Solid.
