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.
