  • Sony Play Station Classic

If Nintendo's retro consoles, the NES Classic and SNES Classic, are any indication, the PlayStation Classic will be extremely popular.

Sony says it will announce the remaining 15 games before launch later this year.

Some 25 years after the OG PlayStation made it debut, Sony has revealed the PlayStation Classic, a shrunken down take on the Japanese electronics giant's gaming hardware debut, which comes pre-loaded with 25 classic games. The company has also retained the original grip handles to deliver the same ergonomic design that was first available on the original PlayStation controllers.

The console is now available for pre-order in Japan, Europe, the USA, and United Kingdom ahead of its release December 3. Nintendo's mini-consoles preloaded with classic games flew off shelves, and fetched a very high resale price on eBay and Amazon. As much as loved Final Fantasy VII, it's a terrible slog without them.

This Band To Perform During Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show
Who knows, perhaps Cardi B will join them for a guest appearance to perform the summer smash hit "I Like It, ". Maroon 5 has been tapped to bring its moves like Jagger to next year's Super Bowl , Variety is reporting .

According to Sony, the PlayStation Classic is "approximately 45% smaller" than the original console. After all, like the NES Classic, Sony's old console should also sell out, especially ahead of Christmas.

"It changed everything", said games journalist Chella Ramanan about the original PlayStation. It comes with two original PS1 controllers for local multiplayer with compatible titles and an HDMI cable.

If we had to bet on which games will be part of the 20 titles you can nearly guarantee Metal Gear Solid and Syphon Filter will be among them. (A USB cable is included instead.) Finally, it's worth noting Sony will miss Black Friday with the present launch date. Although annoyingly you'll need to supply your own compatible USB AC adaptor.

Though there are more games on the way, we do have our first look at five of the titles confirmed thus far.
