The PlayStation Classic is adorable, obviously. Just look at that tiny little replica of the original PlayStation! There’s no way a full-sized CD could fit in that CD-ROM drive!

More importantly, though, the PlayStation Classic comes with 20 equally classic games – at least, that’s the case for the first five Sony has announced.

Here’s what we know so far, and a few more that we expect will arrive with the PlayStation Classic on December 3:


Sony officially announced on Wednesday the first five of 20 games that will come preloaded on the PlayStation Classic. They are: “Final Fantasy VII” …

… “Wild Arms” …

… “Tekken 3” …

Namco

… “Ridge Racer Type 4” …

… and “Jumping Flash.”

With just five of the 20 games revealed thus far, there’s a lot of room for <em>wild speculation</em>. So allow us to indulge a bit.

Everything after this point is purely speculation, but a lot of these games would make sense. After all, if “Resident Evil” and “Crash Bandicoot” aren’t on the PlayStation Classic, something has gone wrong.

That said, beware! This is not the definitive list of games coming to the PlayStation Classic. The only five Sony has announced thus far are above. Everything below this is unconfirmed.
