Last month, PlayStation revealed the PlayStation Classic which took a page from Nintendo's playbook by packaging a handful of retro games onto one miniature console, similar to both the SNES Classic Edition and NES Classic Edition. When we first heard about the console we didn't know more than 5 of the 20 games but now PlayStation has revealed the full lineup of games on the miniature system.

The Full Lineup

Let's get right into it, here are all 20 of the games you'll be able to play on the PlayStation Classic:

  • 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 Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

If you're looking to see a quick snippet of some of these games, check out the trailer below, but heads up that some of the games on here are rated M for Mature so check out the specific ESRB ratings for each game. When looking at the list, there are some solid games in this lineup, personally, I'm surprised and thrilled to see Rayman in the lineup but there are some notable names absent from this list but for good reason.

What's Missing?

Of course, there are some surprising titles omitted from this list. No Crash Bandicoot, specifically Crash Team Racing? There's no Spyro the Dragon or Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, what gives? While most of the games listed above are true PlayStation classics, many of the games in the lineup aren't available on a modern console. If you're looking to play through Crash Bandicoot then you're probably going to want to play through last year's N. Sane Trilogy which beefed up the visuals while retaining the same levels as the original trilogy, it still doesn't explain Crash Team Racing missing but maybe that's the next remaster to hit PS4. Next month, Spyro the Dragon is returning to modern consoles with the Spyro Reignited Trilogy that'll be giving similar treatment to this trilogy as Crash received last year and its November release date means that it'll hit store shelves and digital marketplaces before the PlayStation Classic comes out.

The last notable game that's missing is Castlevania: Symphony of the Night which just got ported to the PlayStation 4 just in time for Halloween, however, it's the PSP version rather than the cheesy PlayStation original that strikes those nostalgic heartstrings. So, while there are some games that should be on this device, it's easy to see why they're missing and you could still enjoy it on a PlayStation console even if it's not the PlayStation Classic.
