One month ago Sony announced the release of a retro console. Of course, this is a refreshed version of the first PlayStation console, i.e. a good “gray”. However, now we are familiar with the full list of 20 pre-installed games.

Do you need to introduce your first Sony PlayStation console (i.e. PSX)? This equipment made its debut in Japan almost a quarter of a century ago. That’s why Sony decided to commemorate their 1st generation console. On December 3, the PlayStation Classic will appear in stores. It looks virtually the same as the original, but it is 45% smaller and has an HDMI output. The box includes 2 classic pads (without analogue knobs) and 20 games:

  1. Battle Arena Toshinden
  2. Cool Boarders 2
  3. Destruction Derby
  4. Final Fantasy VII
  5. Grand Theft Auto
  6. Intelligent Qube
  7. Jumping Flash!
  8. Metal Gear Solid
  9. Mr. Driller
  10. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  11. Rayman
  12. Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  13. Revelations: Persona
  14. Ridge Racer Type 4
  15. Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  16. Syphon Filter
  17. Tekken 3
  18. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  19. Twisted Metal
  20. Wild Arms

The list of games on PlayStation Classic is a bit surprising

The above list is missing a few of my favourite titles. It is a pity that Sony has not decided to place Soul Blade (Soul Edge), which is the first part of the recently released Soulcalibur VI. Some players may be disappointed by the lack of platformers from Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon series. However, here we should not complain, because these games have very well-refined remakes. I also regret that we will not find the first Gran Turismo on PlayStation Classic. However, Sony also prepared some titles that flew out of my memory the first time.

For people who have not enjoyed playing on the first PlayStation, I recommend to launch Metal Gear Solid and the Siphon Filter that has been forgotten for a while. It will also be nice to remind Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee and such classics as Tekken 3 and Final Fantasy VII. I’m glad that Sony also added the first GTA.

The console will cost about Rs 7 300. I suspect that older players will present it to them as part of Santa’s gift. I hope that younger players will also enjoy games from the almost 25-year-old console.
