Sony have released the full list of classics returning, and there's no sign of 'Tomb Raider' anywhere.
The gaming industry has seen a resurgence in being all nostalgic these days when it comes to throwing it back to it's heyday. We've seen Nintendo re-release their 'NES' and 'SNES' consoles to huge success, with a certain 'N64' also rumbling to be making a re-appearance soon.
Having seen Nintendo rolling around in their money, Sony have decided to also jump on the bandwagon and will be releasing their Playstation Classic within a number of weeks, on December 3rd. The full list of 20 games for the console have been announced, and although there are some quality gems in the mix, some may be disappointed.
The reveal trailer below will whet your appetite:
The heavy hitters we can see are 'Grand Theft Auto', 'Metal Gear Solid', 'Twisted Metal', 'Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee', 'Rayman', 'Tekken 3', 'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six', and 'Resident Evil Director's Cut'.
With 20 games coming pre-loaded on the system, you'd hope that at least 15 of the titles would be AAA titles. Unfortunately, Sony haven't included big-name titles like 'Tomb Raider', 'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater', and 'Parappa The Rappa', but have packaged in 'Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo', 'Mr. Driller', and 'Intelligent Qube' instead.
Whatever the line-up, we're looking forward to getting our greedy mitts on the little console when it launches on December 3rd. Maybe the absence of some titles means we'll see a second Playstation Classic get released in the future? Watch this space.
