Sony’s response to Nintendo’s NES and SNES Classic devices, the Playstation Classic is launching very soon, expected to release on December 3.
The Playstation Classic will have a design similar to the Playstation console (PS 1) which was released in 1994, with a size 45% smaller. This miniature console comes complete with two wired controllers, an HDMI cable to connect to your TV, plus a virtual memory card to save your adventures as you go.
The Playstation Classic comes loaded with 20 games from a golden era including, Grand Theft Auto, Tekken 3, Final Fantasy VII, Resident Evil.
Here are some other takeaways from the FAQ on the Playstation Blog:
- Each title supports up to 15 virtual memory card slots.
- Pressing the Reset button returns you to the main UI, and this creates a restore point.
- Games that originally shipped on two discs, including Final Fantasy VII, will prompt you to press “Open” at the end of the first virtual disc to move to the virtual second disc.
- System Link functional is not supported, but some games have split-screen.
- You can power the PlayStation Classic with any USB power sources that supports 5V, 1.01A at a minimum. The console comes with a USB cable but not a USB adaptor.
- You cannot connect PlayStation Classic to PSN, and Sony has no plans to launch new content for the device over time.
- The PlayStation Classic plays the iconic PlayStation start-up sound when you boot it up.
- The console supports 480p and 720p, and your TV may further upscale this.
