Sony Announced PlayStation Classic

Adding a lineup of 20 classic games from 90's, Sony is bringing a miniaturized throwback as PlayStation Classic.

The pioneer to Sony's modern day console PlayStation 4, the original PlayStation was released on 1994 by Sony Computer Entertainment as a home console, which then successfully sold 100 million units worldwide.

At the comfort of their own home, people were offered to play games with 3D rendered graphics real-time and everyone just loved that idea. After nearly 25 years later, they have decided to bring back that original experience in a miniaturized version as PlayStation Classic!

Apparently, like the huge success of Nintendo SNES Classic have Sony following their footsteps and reintroducing their original console to market. Since they are making real smart moves almost every time when they launch something whether it's a new game or a next gen console, it is wise to at least learn from them.

Microsoft has made a revolutionary move by making popular games from Xbox 360 backward compatible for Xbox One. So, Sony might have thought of go after the step Nintendo took in this case.
