The PlayStation Classic is set for release here from Monday 3 December and is confirmed to be priced at a cent short of €100.

Sony has announced this morning that they will release the PlayStation Classic, a mini PS One which will come with 20 pre-loaded games and be released December 3 priced - roughly - £85.

The Classic is approximately 45 percent smaller than the original PlayStation, but Sony has emulated the same layout and grey colourway you've grown to know and love.

Joining the bandwagon of retro game consoles, Sony has launched the PlayStation Classic.

However, since the console uses an internal software database of games - players will not need to manually swap-out disks.

It comes bundled with two replica PS1 controllers, along with a HDMI cable and a USB cable.

Conway on Monday said she had it straight from President Trump that Professor Ford should be allowed her say - and with dignity. Ford said when she tried to scream, he put his hand over her mouth. "The FBI is not doing any further investigation".

The PlayStation Classic will cost £89.99 in the United Kingdom ($99.99 US) and come with 20 pre-loaded games. Sony has a huge catalog of games to pull from for this mini-console.

Sony has announced five games so far.

It is shipping for $99.99 in the USA, while the United Kingdom version costs just under £89.99.

PlayStation Classic is launching in Japan, the USA and Europe, with a United Kingdom price of £90.

With Gamecube being a beloved fan-favorite console just like the PlayStation, it would come as no surprise if Nintendo made a decision to bring the console back like the NES and SNES.

The mini console is all the rage these days.

It looks like a smaller version of the original PlayStation, released in 1994, but ditches the disc drive in favour for a storage system containing the games.
