The Full PlayStation Classic Lineup Includes ‘Grand Theft Auto’ And ‘Final Fantasy VII’


It’s now Sony’s turn to get into the classic console race. With Nintendo’s massively popular NES Classic and Super Nintendo Classic, miniature versions of the famous consoles featuring a list of their best games, Sony has followed suit and will be releasing the PlayStation Classic. It’s, you guessed it, a miniature version of the original PlayStation with 20 playable games from that console era.

Sony has unveiled the list of games that will be available on the PlayStation classic and it does feature a few of the more obvious choices such as Final Fantasy VII, but the lineup as a whole might leave some fans questioning the strength of its library. There are also two separate versions of the console with Japanese players getting a different group of games.

Here are the lineups for both versions of the consoles.

Battle Arena Toshinden

The differences in the two versions is in the types of games. The Japanese version features more RPG’s and shooters as opposed to the more action based version that others will be getting. This makes sense for a company like Sony that has very different player bases and marketing strategies in Japan and the rest of the world.
