Relive your 90's gaming addiction.
Remember the days of gaming until 3 AM because you had no responsibilities? Now, you can relive those times with a new throwback gaming system that will have you hooked. In the wake of Nintendo's successful relaunch of the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), and the SNES, Sony is doing some backtracking of its own. Nintendo's mini-consoles preloaded with classic games flew off shelves, and fetched a very high resale price on eBay and Amazon. Sony aims to capitalize off the gaming nostalgia with a throwback system of their own.
Sony announced their new endeavor this week, which has been labeled the PlayStation Classic. Fashioned as a mini-Playstation, the console will hold twenty classic PlayStation games. Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms have all been announced as games that come preloaded into the system. Still, I hope Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 2, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro make an appearance as well. Those games alone could make up a 90's time capsule.
The PlayStation Classic features the old-school controller that came with the original system, and also comes with two controller and memory card slots. The system touches down on December 3rd, just in time for holiday season, and will cost $99.
