PlayStation Classic Release Date, Price, Spec & Game Availability News


The PlayStation Classic will arrive this year, bringing with it 20 classic titles in one small box. Here's all you need to know about Sony's retro console.

Sony's PlayStation Classic is official, and looks to follow in the footsteps of Nintendo with the release of the SNES Classic and NES Classic. The market for retro consoles has proved to be incredibly popular in recent years, and while Sony's PS Now service offers the ability to play a range of PS2 and PS3 games, the PlayStation Classic is the only way to play PlayStation One games. 

The PlayStation classic will look like the original but about 45% smaller, and come with 20 pre-loaded games for all your nostalgic playing pleasure.

Here's all you need to know about Sony's PlayStation Classic, from release date and pricing to details on game availability and what you'll get in the box. 

When is the PlayStation Classic Release date?
The PlayStation Classic will be released on 3 December 2018, though we expect the console to be in high demand and it's likely that it'll sell out on launch date. For those that are keen, the PlayStation Classic is available to pre-order on Amazon as we speak.

How much will the PlayStation Classic cost?
The PlayStation classic will retail at £89.99 (€99.00 / $99.00) assuming you're able to get your hands on one. These retro consoles have a reputation for selling out extremely quickly and we’re not sure what the supply situation is like, so make sure you get yours as soon as possible. Amazon stock is hit-and-miss, though at the time of writing, the mini console is still available to pre-order at GAME in the UK

What games will be available on the PlayStation Classic?
The 20 pre-loaded games that come with the console is going to be a huge factor in whether you decide to purchase one or not.

Here's a complete list of games available on the PlayStation Classic:
  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Resident Evil Director's Cut
  • R4 Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms
It's worth noting that this is the list for UK and US fans, as much like Nintendo's retro consoles, game availability for the PlayStation Classic is region-specific.

In response to questions posted by IGN, Sony confirmed that "The 20 titles launching with the PlayStation Classic were selected due to their popularity amongst original PlayStation fans. However it is important to note that the title list is tailored to each region,”

The company has also confirmed that there won't be any games added to the retro console post-launch, and that there is no online functionality or the ability to connect to PSN accounts or services. 

What accessories will come with the PlayStation Classic?

The PlayStation Classic will come with two original wired PlayStation controllers, so they won’t include the Dualshock analogue sticks. The console will also be powered by a USB port at the back, and if you want an AC Adaptor, you’re going to have to buy one of those separately.

Amazon Lord Of The Rings TV Show Latest News

Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV series has been quiet on the news front for the past few months but we're starting to some details emerge for the highly anticipated show.
For most of the past decade, TV producers have been desperate to find ‘the next Game of Thrones’, and now Amazon apparently reckons it’s found it: Lord of the Rings.

Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) Review

A mid-range phone with triple rear cameras is a rare thing, especially at under £300 but the Galaxy A7 isn't an instant winner. Find out why in our full review.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018)? The Galaxy A7 is a decent choice for a mid-range phone if you're looking to spend less than £300. Highlights include an excellent screen, nice design and cameras you'd wouldn't expect to find.
However, unless you're going to use the wide-angle lens a lot there are some strong rivals out there like the Moto G7 Plus and Honor Play.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.

iHealth Core Review

This smart scale from iHealth offers detailed body composition measurements, from BMI to visceral fat rating. Find out what we think in our iHealth Core review.
Should I Buy The iHealth Core? We like the way that the Core and Lite scales interact with the other iHealth products, and the Core offers a bunch of useful metrics with which to monitor your health. Setup is easy and the app's graphs give a decent visual representation of your health-metric trends as you progress.
