Sony dropped the full list of games for the PlayStation classic - a $99 miniaturized throwback to the disc spinning original announced in September - and there are some massive time-sucking titles like Final Fantasy VII or quick fixes the likes of Tekken 3. When I announced the changes on Facebook, the response summed up in one word: weak.

Here's the full list of games.

  • 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

I expected everyone to like "just build your own using Raspberry Pi", but instead it was a bunch of frustration for the games we loved specifically as the PlayStation Classic, like the previous NES Classic and SNES Classic, comes pre-loaded with that lineup and no way to update.

For $99 bucks, I'm not sure I would spend the money.
