These are the 20 games that will be included in the PlayStation Classic

Sony has revealed the full list of games that will be included in the PlayStation Classic – a miniaturized version of the original 1997 games console.

The list includes many fondly remembered classics from the 1990s – including Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid and Tekken 3 – along with some slightly more obscure titles that never gained mainstream success when they were first released (or were never big hits outside of Japan).

Here’s the full list:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

Announced last month, the PlayStation Classic will be the latest retro console to be shrunk-down, loaded up with classic games and re-leased at a wallet-friendly price. The NES, Super Nintendo and Sega Megadrive have all recently had a similar treatment.

The console will be sold with 20 games in its internal storage and will include 2 wired controllers and a HDMI connection. Similar to other mini consoles, it can be charged via micro USB.

Due to its small size, the PlayStation Classic won’t be able to play original discs – the CD tray is non-functional and purely for decoration. As is par for the course, players won’t be able to download additional games either – but with a collection including some absolute gems, it’s still well worth the price of admission.

The PlayStation Classic will be released on 3rd December 2018 with an RRP of £89.99.
