CAPE TOWN – Sony has announced the release of the PlayStation Classic, the retro game system that you may have used when you were a child. 

"Almost 25 years ago, the original PlayStation was introduced to the world. Today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturized version – PlayStation Classic", said Sony in a statement. 

According to Sony, the new console will be a mini console that is 45 percent smaller than the original PlayStation. 

It added that it will come preloaded with 20 classic titles, including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.
