  • The Play Station Classic will hit Malaysian shores on December 3

It comes with an HDMI cable, two wired controllers and a USB power cord, but you'll need to supply your own AC adapter.

It will be available for purchase for $99.99 on 3 December.

Naturally, a nostalgic announcement like this had the internet awash with reactions ranging from generous doses of snark to demands for specific games to be included in the 20-game lineup.

The PlayStation was a best-selling console and holds a soft spot in the hearts of many gamers.

The move will be the company's debut product in the retro mini console market after Nintendo released its all-in-one retro console the Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition in 2016.

PlayStation One Classic is nearly half the size of Sony's original 1994 console, making it small enough to hold in one hand.

Sony promises fans a nostalgic experience with the packaging kept similar to the original one released 25 years ago

'All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format, ' the company said. The unit itself is powered via USB, so people can run it off any USB port or charger as long as it's capable of delivering 1 A of current.

The PlayStation Classic's release date is not insignificant.

If you're going to pre-order online, just be aware that you will have to put down the full $99.99 (plus tax) to get your hands on one from all three outlets. The console has 20 games pre-installed, including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, R4 Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.

The RRP for the console will be €99.99 while the United Kingdom version will be priced at £89.99.

The other 15 spots on the PS1 Classic are bound to include some of our other favorites, such as Crash Team Racing, Spyro the Dragon, and Tomb Raider. And if you're like us, simply reading those names again is enough to take you on one big feels trip.
