Sony Launching Limited Edition PlayStation Classic

PlayStation Classic Where to Pre-Order

The original PlayStation gaming console is making a comeback for the holiday season at about half it's original size and pre-loaded with classic games. As for the games, Final Fantasy VII, TEKKEN 3, R4: Ridge Racer Type 4, Jumping Flash! First released in Japan on December 3, 1994, the PlayStation established Sony's place in the video game console market, priming them to dominate Nintendo, Sega and then-newcomers Microsoft in the subsequent generation of systems with the PlayStation 2. However, if you're a fan of old PS1 games and want to easily play them on your HDTV, this product is right up your alley.

The console which retails for around $60 comes with 30 games including Nintendo's famed Super Mario and Donkey Kong characters.

When Sony first released the PlayStation, it was the first console in video game history to ship 100 million units worldwide, according to the company.

The new, mini version of the PSOne is almost half the size of the original console, but looks identical to the grey box that so many 90s kids fell in love with. It comes with two controllers that are similar to the original, an HDMI cable and a USB cable. There's no AC adaptor, which means you'll have to use the USB-C cable for power.

After news broke, Twitter users exploded in excitement -- with a dose of indifference -- over the PlayStation Classic. It's already up for pre-order at a bunch of places.

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

The other 15 spots on the PS1 Classic are bound to include some of our other favorites, such as Crash Team Racing, Spyro the Dragon, and Tomb Raider.

FIFA 97 allowed you to play on an indoor pitch, FIFA 98 let you play out the entire World Cup tournament and four years prior to that we had FIFA 94, where you could literally run away from the referee.
