Sony Confirms PlayStation Classic Games List: Metal Gear Solid, GTA, Syphon Filter, And More

The December 3 release date is significant as it’s also the day that the original PlayStation launched in 1994. The new mini version of the PlayStation is 45 percent smaller than the original one. We spotted the PlayStation Classic alongside the original hardware at Paris Games Week and you can see them side-by-side in the pictures below.

Sony has officially confirmed the full list of games for its upcoming mini console throwback to the PS1, the PlayStation Classic. The system is set to launch on December 3 and comes pre-loaded with a total of 20 games, as previously announced. The initial reveal consisted of only five games on the list, but we now know everything it will come with.

As revealed on the PlayStation Blog, the list includes a nice mixture of genres and titles that represent the iconic console. These include Battle Arena Toshinden, Metal Gear Solid, Jumping Flash, Syphon Filter, Tekken 3, and more. Take a look at the full list, which looks to be the same across Europe and American territories, below. (Those in Japan, however, are getting a similar but not entirely identical list of games, as their PlayStation Classic will feature some additional RPGs.) You can also watch a trailer for the micro console below.
