The Internet Has Strong Feelings About Sony's Newly-Announced PlayStation Classic

If Nintendo's retro consoles, the NES Classic and SNES Classic, are any indication, the PlayStation Classic will be extremely popular.

Not all games that come preloaded with the system are known yet. Oh, and keep in mind that you'll also need to have a USB AC adapter for the PlayStation Classic as there isn't one included in the package.

As well as featuring numerous original games players will have two controllers based on the original pre-DualShock model.

You can see a whole bunch more neat photos at the official site for the PlayStation Classic.

Of the 20 games that will be available on the console, Sony has only announced five so far: Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.

Florence makes landfall in N. Carolina
But with half of the storm still out over the Atlantic, Florence continued to collect warm ocean water and dump it onshore. Picture the entire state of Texas covered with roughly 4 inches of water: that's Florence's rainfall forecast over a week.

Instead, the open button on the PS One Classic switches virtual discs, while the "reset" is used to quit games in progress. For our own Matt Goldberg, well, you can check out his list of the 25 games that would make for great PlayStation mini-console revivals. It's unclear exactly what controller connection Sony is using for the PlayStation Classic. Fashioned as a mini-Playstation, the console will hold twenty classic PlayStation games.

The announcement continues a trend of big-name gaming firms releasing miniature versions of classic products.

Sony said it will release more details in the coming months.

Until then, fans can get their thumbs ready to hop back in time a few decades by watching the console's release trailer. With the right game lineup, Sony's throwback console could be the ideal time travel machine for folks with a fondness for the early days of 32-bit gaming.

The lack of a new Classic Nintendo system creates a potential opening for Sony.
