We now have the full list of PlayStation Classic titles


News by Matt S.

Sony saw the success of Nintendo's two mini consoles - the NES Mini and the SNES Mini, and decided it just had to copy it. So it looked, discovered that it two had an old and beloved console, the original PlayStation, and decided to do exactly the same thing.

Just like the Nintendo mini consoles, the PlayStation Classic is a tiny little box that has a bunch of games preloaded onto it. Sony has now revealed what those 20 games are. They are...

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
Persona
Ridge Racer Type 4
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
Syphon Filter
Tekken 3
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
Twisted Metal
Wild Arms

Now in fairness, that's not such a bad list. It would have been better if there was Resident Evil 2 and Final Fantasy VIII, of course, but I'd play a solid half of those games all over again, quite happily.

Sadly, in Europe and America we got the short end of the stick. Just look at what the Japanese are getting:

Arc the Lad
Arc the Lad 2
Armored Core
Battle Arena Toshinden
Devil Dice (aka XI [sai])
Final Fantasy VII
G Darius
Gradius Gaiden
Intelligent Qube
Jumping Flash
Metal Gear Solid
Mr. Driller
Parasite Eve
Persona
Resident Evil
Ridge Racer Type 4
SaGa Frontier
Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo
Tekken 3
Wild Arms

Armored Core, two Arc the Lad games and Devil Dice? The Japanese got the objectively better lineup of games.

Sadly, the original Dark Souls, King's Field, isn't on either list. Wasted opportunity there, Sony and FromSoftware.

The mini console launches on December 3.
