The original PlayStation is a giant of a machine, both physically and culturally, with a tremendous library of games and the distinction of being the first ever console to surpass 100 million units sold.
It's therefore exciting that, on the exact 25th anniversary of the PlayStation's launch in Japan, Sony is taking this giant and shrinking it down into a tiny replica version with 20 games installed, which you can buy for $150 and plug into your modern TV to relive (or discover) some of that mid-'90s magic.
Today, Sony Australia released a new PS VR bundle that's actually worth the money. The PlayStation VR Mega Pack contains version 2.0 of the virtual-reality headset, the PlayStation VR Camera and five full-price games for $469.95. If you're looking for a gamer-friendly Christmas gift, this is it.

Australia's answer to Black Friday is currently in full swing. While most of the '99% off' flash sales are now over, you still have a few hours to pick up a great deal on game and tech products. Here are the highlights!
Red Dead Redemption 2 is not for kids. Rockstar Games' sprawling Western video game is rated M for violence, torture, foul-mouthed cowpokes, and many more mature delights. Luckily for gaming parents, though, the most disturbing, antisocial and gory mayhem is either found in the game's missions or is a result of player choices.
When you tire of shooting doomsday preppers in Far Cry 5, instead of reselling the game for a mere fraction of what you paid or letting it collect dust in your garage for the next 26 years, why not make a bored kid’s day by donating it to your local library?
In Reddit’s Gaming community, digital_russ shared how he did just that after being “sick of GameStop’s ridiculous trade-in offers”.
