Roughly 45% smaller than the original, the PlayStation Classic will include two controllers, an HDMI cable, and 20 games.

Following in the footsteps of Nintendo’s NES Classic and SNES Classic, Sony has announced the PlayStation Classic console. Of course, Xbox, with their extensive Backward Compatibility program, couldn’t resist taking a friendly jab at Sony.

Here’s the announcement tweet from Sony:

Followed by a response from Xbox UK:

Taking a look at those two tweets, it’s definitely apparent who comes out on top in the “classic games” department. At any rate, that aside, the PlayStation Classic will be released on December 3rd and includes 20 pre-installed games.

Roughly 45% smaller than the original, the mini-console from Sony will include two controllers, an HDMI cable, and games such as Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, and  Ridge Racer Type 4. The rest of the line-up will be released ahead of the console’s launch. The PlayStation Classic will retail for $99.99USD/$129.99CAD/€99.99/£89.99.
