For better or worse, the age of controller cables and memory cards is long gone. It was a good time, though—a time in which the original Playstation was especially successful. Sony's gray box was the first home console in video game history to ship 100 million units worldwide, spawning a succession of gaming consoles that is in its fourth generation today.

But if you, like many people born before the year 2000, are ever nostalgic for that era, you'll be excited to know that Sony will be bringing the original Playstation back. The Japanese tech giant will be releasing a miniaturized version of it called the Playstation Classic, which resembles the PS1.

Check it out:

The Playstation Classic is roughly 45 percent smaller than the original, and comes pre-loaded with 20 classic PS1 titles. They've announced five of those titles: Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.

Sony will be announcing the other titles in the months to come, but if you'd ask us, it would be an absolute crime if Metal Gear Solid and Chrono Cross didn't make that list.
