Sony has announced the full lineup of 20 games included with the PlayStation Classic.
The full PlayStation Classic games lineup has been announced by Sony. The first five titles – Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash!, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms – were revealed when the miniature console was first announced in September, and its far to say that the full roster plugs some obvious gaps, but also leaves a few.
New additions include the first Grand Theft Auto, Resident Evil Directors Cut, Mr Driller, and Syphon Filter.
We won’t say no to the original Metal Gear Solid, either, although its inclusion highlights our disappointment that the PlayStation Classic doesn’t come bundled with Dual Shock controllers.
As for the omissions, there’s no place for the first Tomb Raider, or Silent Hill. And we would have loved for the original Wipeout to be included, but as we know, music licensing with video games can be a minefield.
Here is the full list.
PlayStation Classic Lineup
- Battle Arena Toshinden
- Cool Boarders 2
- Destruction Derby
- Final Fantasy VII

The PlayStation Classic is available to pre-order now, and will be released on December 3, 2018. That being said, here’s why you might want to think twice about ordering one.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
