Notably, some major fan favorites did make their way onto the West’s PlayStation Classic games list, including Rayman, Twisted Metal, Resident Evil Director’s Cut, Grand Theft Auto, and Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six.

When the PlayStation Classic was announced at this year’s TGS show, the internet went wild with speculations as to what games would be included on it. Now that we all know the full PlayStation Classic games list, the wait until the December 3, 2018 release date can’t end soon enough.

The PlayStation Classic comes pre-loaded with all 20 of the above games, and includes two PlayStation controllers, along with a USB power cord and HDMI cord. The PlayStation Classic retails for $99.99, and is available to preorder at many major retailers.
