Sony has launched an official video showing in great detail the content of PlayStation Classic. Now, we can see how the new mini version of the original PlayStation is designed to look as close as possible to the original console, but in a much smaller format. To be more precise, it has dimensions of 149 x 33 x 105 mm, 45% less than the size of the original console.
The Sony’s PlayStation Classic comes out with 20 PlayStation games, such as 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, Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Revelations: Persona, Ridge Racer Type 4, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, Syphon Filter, Tekken 3, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six, Twisted Metal, and Wild Arms.
The PlayStation Classic console has a video resolution of 720p or 480p, so it will possibly rescale depending on which device is used to play. The two included controllers have 1.5-m cables, and the 2-m HDMI cable can be used to connect the system to the TV, as it is not compatible with any other video or audio method. Regarding the controls, the only ones compatible are those included with the PlayStation Classic.
Sony Revealed More Details On Its PlayStation Classic Which Rolls Out Today
Each of the before-mentioned PlayStation Classic titles has 15 virtual memory card slots, which you can manage in the console’s main interface. As with the original PlayStation, if you delete a save file, it will be lost and cannot be recovered. On the other hand, the reset button allows you to return to the central system interface and create a save point from the moment you started playing.
The next time you play that game, you can start from the save point you created. Also, when you reach the end of a disc in games that initially had several discs, such as Final Fantasy VII and Metal Gear Solid, for which you’ll need to press the open button on the console to switch to the next virtual disc.
System Link is not available on PlayStation Classic. However, you can play split-screen multiplayer with compatible games. Sony also warns that it will not be possible to download new games for the console, buy them, or use the original PlayStation games. In addition to that, for the moment, there are no plans to bring content updates to the system.
