Kinda saw this on coming, didn’t we? Not to be out done by Nintendo, Sony is also jumping the classic console bandwagon by announcing the upcoming reissue of their original PlayStation. Like the NES and Super NES from Nintendo, the new console will be 40% smaller than the original and come with over 20 preloaded games including Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Ridge Racer 4, and Wild Arms. Sadly, this is less than the 40+ games included with Nintendo’s reissued consoles. Still, the PS1 is a classic console that was the forerunner of the fifth generation of video game consoles. The PlayStation Mini is set for release on December 3, 2018, the exact date the original console was launched in Japan in 1994.
