PlayStation Classic full game list isn't so hot

Sony's revealed the full list of games coming to its $100 mini PlayStation...and they could be better

Sony's new $100 PlayStation Classic will ship with 20 old-school PS1 games, but the list could be a lot better.

Today Sony announced the full list of games that will come pre-loaded on its new PlayStation Classic micro-console. Honestly the list isn't all that impressive. While it does include greats like Metal Gear Solid, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, and Final Fantasy VII, there's a lot of key PS1 titles missing (a slew of Final Fantasy games, for instance).

I'd personally like to see games like Diablo and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on the list, but the 20-strong lineup won't change before or after the console ships on December 3. Remember the PS Classic can't connect to the internet to download any new games--it's just a micro-console not unlike the SNES Classic Edition.

I'm personally going to pass on the PlayStation Classic as it doesn't seem like a value proposition for me. But that's not to say it won't be a fun little holiday system.

Check below for the full PlayStation Classic games offering:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid

  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
