Sony has dropped hints that it may be retroing the original PlayStation from 1994 in an interview between Sony President and CEO John Kodera and Mantan Web. Translated from Japanese by Comicbook, the CEO said "our company is always digging up past assets, I think there are various ways to do (a classic console). There have been discussions happening (within the company) on what kind of ways are there."

The PS1 was first released in Japan in 1994 and is a touchstone of nostalgia for many gamers around the world. For many millennials too, this console would have been their first home gaming experience. The rumors are not too surprising considering that rival company Nintendo has been capitalizing on this nostalgia by re-releasing older consoles recently, such as the NES and SNES.

If Sony are to go ahead with a re-release you could hope to revisit fan favorites such as Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy 7, Crash Bandicoot and Resident Evil among other classic PS1 titles.
