This is why the announcement of a Sony Playstation Classic Console - similar to the run of Nintendo consoles that have been launching has us tickled pink. PlayStation Classic is a ideal fit for anyone including the current PlayStation fans as well as nostalgic fans that enjoyed playing the original PlayStation and gamers new to PlayStation who want to experience classic PlayStation games from the 1990s. Built to a scale some 45 percent smaller than its inspiration, and naturally lacking the CD-ROM of its predecessor, the device comes with 20 pre-loaded games and two wired controllers.
Sony plans to release a revamped model of the iconic gaming console, called PlayStation Classic on December 3, Sony announced Wednesday. Sony is now getting in on the classic console action with the PlayStation Classic landing December 3.

Sony is now on its fourth iteration of the PlayStation, and the PlayStation 5 is due out next year. Sony announced the news in a blog post early this morning, just a few weeks shy of the revolutionary console's 23rd anniversary.
Sony joins Nintendo in the market for nostalgic gamers after their wildly successful sales with NES Classic Edition, a miniature version of the old console.
Just for scale, here's all the power of the original system resting in a human hand. Sony is bringing the PlayStation One back. The package will include two PlayStation controllers, an HDMI cord, a USB cable, and a virtual memory card for save files. Also, there is a USB cable. Something that's not featured is an AC adaptor, which will be sold separately for freakish reasons that can not be explained beyond being a misguided cost-cutting measure.
