The most recent tug on the strings of your nostalgia, the PlayStation Classic is set to be released on 3rd December and PlayStation has released the full list of games that will ship with the console.

The firm revealed five titles when it announced the miniature console and the full list follows below.

  • 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

We’re in two minds about this line-up. On the one hand we’re chomping at the bit to play Cool Boarders 2 again and clock Syphon Filter.

On the other hand, don’t meet your heroes.

That having been said we’re happy that a younger generation which never got to experience these titles will have a chance to.

There’s no word on how much the PlayStation Classic will retail for in South Africa or whether the console will indeed be available in South Africa.

In the UK the console will retail for £89.99 (~R1 689.53) and while we strongly advise against pre-orders of any form you can pre-order the console here.
