Plays­ta­tion Clas­sic

T3 - - Horizon Top 10 -

Whether it’s cin­e­mas re­vis­it­ing iconic movies or ’80s boy bands com­ing out of re­tire­ment for one fi­nal tour, nos­tal­gia is big busi­ness. And 24 years af­ter the first PlayS­ta­tion hit the shelves, Sony is tar­get­ing sen­ti­men­tal gamers with a Mini- Me recre­ation of its trail­blaz­ing 32-bit fun box. 45 per cent smaller than its ’90s an­ces­tor, the PlayS­ta­tion Clas­sic does away with the orig­i­nal con­sole’s disc loader and of­fers 20 pre­loaded retro ti­tles, in­clud­ing Tekken 3, Fi­nal Fan­tasy VII and Jump­ing Flash. Other up­grades in­clude a HDMI con­nec­tion, a vir­tual mem­ory card (so you can save your games with­out hav­ing to faff around with phys­i­cal car­tridges), and two con­trollers. The Clas­sic is due out on 3 De­cem­ber, just in time for some throw­back thrills on Christ­mas Day.

T3 SAYS: This diddy ver­sion of the ’90s con­sole is a real blast/shoot/punch from the past.
