Sony To Launch “PlayStation Classic” Mini Console This December

At a time when everything old is new again, Sony has just announced that it too will be launching a new mini console that pays homage to the classic PlayStation that debuted in the 90s.

Dubbed the PlayStation Classic, the upcoming console will look identical to the original PlayStation with the addition of an HDMI port and a 45% reduction in size.

The console will come pre-loaded with 20 beloved games from the 90s such as Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Jumping Flash and Wild Arms.

The PlayStation Classic will arrive with two controllers, an HDMI cable and a USB cable to power the device.

It will be available in Singapore just in time for Christmas on December 3.

Venom Will Be Getting His Own Standalone Movie, Slated For 2018 Release

Sony has just announced that a Venom movie is on the way, with an October 5, 2018 release date.

According to Topher Grace as Eddie Brock/Venom in Spider-Man 3[/caption]

It is currently unclear how involved Marvel Studios will be in this one, if at all, as the announcement was made solely by Sony alone.

Sony, who holds the rights to Spider-Man and affiliated characters, agreed back in 2015 to work together with Marvel on upcoming Spider-Man movies, following the less than successful Amazing Spider-Man 2. In fact, many believe that Marvel led the creative direction of Spidey’s new standalone reboot Homecoming, due for release this year.

While Venom has long been known as Spider-Man’s foe, the character has had standalone comic issues, quelling any doubts as to whether the character can hold a standalone film.

Audiences have had a taste of Venom on the big screen in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, with Topher Grace donning the symbiotic suit.

More information to come when it’s made available.

This Company Is Selling Retro-Painted PS4s That 90s Kids Would Die For

The current line-up of PlayStation 4s are barely recognisable to the OG PlayStation from 1994. The original console by Sony had a distinctive grey colour scheme with a vibrant PS logo that popped right off its body.

Since then, PlayStations have taken on a black exterior with the exception of limited edition skins and the likes.

It even has the classic rainbow-coloured PlayStation logo on top and greyed out controllers to match.

The USB ports are even labelled “1” and “2”, similar to how the OG PlayStation had its controller ports numbered.

The consoles are limited of course, with only 25 sets of PS4 Pros and 50 sets of PS4 Slims up for sale.
