Building up on the hype surrounding the launch of the PlayStation Classic, Sony has just released an unboxing video for the upcoming release. Now almost 25-years in age, the original PlayStation console became a household name in the mid-’90s, and went on to become the first gaming sole to ship one hundred million units, globally.
The PlayStation Classic comes pre-loaded with hit titles like Grand Theft Auto, Tekken 3, Final Fantasy VII, Twisted Metal, and Metal Gear Solid. From the unboxing we get a better feel at just how compact the “Classic” version is, sitting at just 45-percent of the original version’s size — the iconic controllers remain the same. In keeping with the times, the Playstation Classic will plug into modern televisions using an HDMI cable, and will be powered via a USB cable that’s also included in the box.
Look for the PlayStation Classic to launch globally on December 3. In other gaming news, ’Shenmue III’ received over $7 million USD in crowdfunding.
