Looking forward to the PlayStation Classic’s release this December? Here’s something to whet your appetite as you wait for the mini console’s release! PlayStation recently released a quick unboxing video of the PlayStation Classic. There are two versions of the unboxing, the English version and the Japanese version.

Watch the unboxing videos here:

As with almost all of PlayStation’s unboxing videos, social media director Sid Shuman was the guy to unbox the Classic for the English version. The unboxing itself was over quickly, given that the console itself is tiny (45% smaller than the original PlayStation) and it only included two wired controllers plus cables.

For the Japanese version, the Classic’s box features the original Japanese PlayStation design. This version also shows the PlayStation Classic in action, complete with a tweaked PS1 boot-up screen as well as the console’s menu screen.

In case you aren’t familiar, the PlayStation Classic is a mini PS1 that includes 20 pre-loaded games. The console was first revealed last September, with the full list of 20 titles being announced last October (here’s the full list if you missed it). The PlayStation Classic will be released in the US on December 3, 2018 for an SRP of $99.99 USD. No word yet on the console’s availability in the Philippines though; if it does become available, watch out next week for announcements by major PH video game outlets.

Are you getting your own PlayStation Classic? Personally, I’d probably get one if it gets released in the PH. Though others from our team believe that the PlayStation Classic’s lineup sucks!
