Everything else we know about the PlayStation Classic

  • The console comes with two wired controllers, a virtual Memory Card built-in for game saves, and a HDMI cable.
  • The PlayStation Classic controller length is unknown right now - the short wire was a problem for many NES Mini owners, so hopefully Sony can avoid this mistake.
  • Packaging for the PlayStation Classic is designed to mimic the original console - even down to the instruction manual.
  • The controllers don't have analogue sticks, which might have some games (racers, possibly Metal Gear Solid) difficult, but in theory everything will be available to play.
  • The PlayStation Classic doesn't come with a USB power adapter - you'll have to buy one of those separately. The type supported is a 5V, Type A output.
  • If you're hoping for more games post-release, Sony says additional PlayStation Classic games "cannot be added on via download or any other way".
