Following in the wake of success that was the NES Classic edition, Sony announces a re-release of the Playstation.
The NES Classic was an instant hit, selling out virtually everywhere as new and old gamers alike got on the nostalgia train.
Hopefully Sony will be able to keep up with demand, when the NES Classic was released, it was virtually impossible to buy one due to stock shortages.
Following suit, Nintendo rival Sony has announced today a new console, a mini version of the famous Playstation 1, with 20 games pre-installed. 25 years after the original was released.
The games will include classics such as Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.
An expensive device?
The device is set to retail in the UK for £89.99, expensive compared to the NES Classic which retails around £40, and the SNES Classic which sells for £65.
However, it is much less than the cost of the Playstation when it was first release on September 9, 199 for $299.
A used but restored Playstation 1’s are listed on Ebay for around £40, but obviously these wont come with games, and you will need an adapter unless your modern TV has the RGB inputs you need.
