GAMERS will be able to take a trip back in time with Sony’s latest console.
The PlayStation Classic is modelled on the original PlayStation, which was launched in 1994.
The new gadget is a shrunken down version of the iconic console and comes with two wired controllers.
The £90 retro reboot will be pre-loaded with 20 games and goes on sale on December 3 – exactly 24 years since the original PlayStation was launched.

Among the games announced for the miniature console so far are Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3 and Ridge Racer Type 4, with more to be announced by the gaming giant.
The announcement continues a trend of big-name gaming firms releasing miniature versions of classic products.
Nintendo has had huge success in the last two years by releasing scaled down versions of the NES and SNES consoles – both of which have quickly sold out.
Sega has since joined the market and is planning to launch a mini version of its 90s console the Mega Drive next year.
