The full list of games for the upcoming mini console has been revealed.
Sony has announced the full list of PS1 games set to be pre-loaded with its new PlayStation Classic retro game console, including titles like Metal Gear Solid and Grand Theft Auto. The system is designed to look like a miniature version of the company's original PlayStation and will also come packed with two controllers. Pre-orders are now live for $100 through Amazon and Best Buy.
The PlayStation Classic mimics the look and feel of the original system but is about 45% smaller. Likewise, the device doesn't actually feature a disc drive. Instead, the Open button is used to switch games and the Reset button is used to suspend games. The package includes the console, two wired controllers, a virtual memory card, an HDMI cable, and a USB cable -- though users will need their own separate USB AC adaptor to power the unit.
Here's a full list of all 20 games set to be pre-loaded with the system:
The original PlayStation console was first released on December 3, 1994 in Japan and September 9, 1995 in the US. Over 100 million units of the console have been sold. The device was succeeded by the PlayStation 2 in 2000, the PlayStation 3 in 2006, and the PlayStation 4 in 2013.
Sony's PlayStation Classic ($100) is now available for pre-order for a December 3 release. The retro console will join similar previously released mini systems from Nintendo, including the NES Classic Edition ($60) and SNES Classic Edition ($80).
