What are your favorite original PlayStation memories?

This new mini console promises 20 PS1 games pre-loaded onto a shrunken-down replica of the original PlayStation console, which just so happens to be celebrating its 25th birthday this year. As well as the mini console, an HDMI cable for connecting to a TV and two wired controllers will be included. The console is available for preorder and will cost around $99.99 USD/$129.99 CAN and will be released on December 3, 2018, just in time for a nostalgia-heavy Christmas.

The RESET button on the console will now suspend games, with the OPEN button letting you change the "Virtual Disc" inside.

Like its competitors, the PlayStation Classic will come in a smaller size, approximated to be 45 percent smaller than the original console. Nintendo has previously made mini versions of its NES and SNES consoles, which also included a set of pre-loaded classic games.
