PlayStation Classic Console Had 36 Games That Did Not Make it to Release

PlayStation Classic Console

The PlayStation Classic released earlier this week (South Africans have to wait until December 7) with 20 golden oldies like Grand Theft Auto, Final Fantasy VII, Metal Gear Solid, Rayman, Resident Evil, and lots more. Naturally, someone did a data mine of the console and discovered 36 more games that could’ve formed part of the lineup.

One alphafoxwarfare shared a list of the games discovered in the source code on Twitter. You can also check out the original post showing the data mine contents on GitHub. There are some epic classic games on the list like Medal of Honor, Tomb Raider II, Silent Hill, Crash Bandicoot, and Gran Turismo.

You can check out the list of all the games that released on the PlayStation Classic here. It is anyone’s guess why Sony didn’t include some of the classic discovered in the source code, but it could be because of licensing agreements or some such red tape issue. 

Reading through reviews, it sounds like some critics echo the sentiment of our outspoken PlayStation fan in the above tweet. Sony didn’t include enough classic PlayStation games to take players through a trip down memory lane. That’s one side of the argument as there are just as many critics who say the games are mostly enjoyable, but the gameplay is terrible. At least most agree that the console looks the part.
