As the release date for the PlayStation Classic draws closer, Sony is amping up the hype by dropping an unboxing video that places the new mini device side-by-side with its OG counterpart.

Retracing the gaming console's iconic history — looking at how it became a household icon in the mid ’90s, selling over 100 million units worldwide — the video shows how this heritage has been repackaged in the new, super-compact version.

Boasting many of the originals beloved qualities — including the iconic controllers, which remain unchanged — the Classic comes preloaded with many hit titles, such as Grand Theft Auto, Tekken 3, Final Fantasy VII, Twisted Metal, and Metal Gear Solid.

Of course, connection elements have been updated to enable the PlayStation Classic's compatibility with modern televisions (via HDMI), and the device is powered by a USB cable that comes in the box.
