Playstation embraces the past with Playstation Classic

Sony has announced they'll be offering their own take on Nintendo's NES and NES Mini hardware in the form of the Playstation Classic.

Sony say that "PlayStation Classic is a perfect fit for nostalgic PlayStation fans that enjoyed playing the original PlayStation as well as gamers new to PlayStation who want to experience classic PlayStation games from the 1990s."

Like the NES and SNES Mini, the Playstation Classic is a miniature games console that mirrors the look of the original PlayStation and comes preloaded with 20 original games including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash!, R4 RIDGE RACER TYPE 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms.

It'll come bundled with a HDMI cable for connecting to an external displays such as TV monitors and a Micro USB cable but not an AC Adaptor - which you'll need to power the mini console.

Sony say that select titles will support two-player multiple using the two controllers included with the console.

The Playstation Classic will launch in limited quantities on December 3, 2018, in Japan, North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. The mini console will be available at a recommended retail price of $149.99 AUD.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
