The PlayStation Classic is Sony's first attempt at a retro console following Nintendo's stab at it with the SNES Mini and NES Mini. When it was initially announced, Sony didn't reveal which 20 games would be coming to the console. Now, the 20 games that are coming to the PlayStation Classic have been announced. They include some fantastic, timeless games like Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy VII as well as some questionable choices such as Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six. There are some notable omissions such as the Crash Bandicoot series as well as Crash Team Racing and Soul Edge. And while Final Fantasy VII has made the cut, it's perplexing to see Final Fantasy Tactics absent. Nonetheless, here's what you get with the PlayStation Classic.
The PlayStation Classic price is $99.99 (roughly Rs. 7,300). It will go on sale in the US market as well as Canada starting December 3. The price of the PlayStation Classic is notably higher than the $80 SNES Classic and $60 NES Classic Edition.
Details about its price and availability in India are yet to be revealed. We've reached out to Sony India for clarity on the India launch of the PlayStation Classic and will update this space accordingly. It should show up in the Indian market as well, given that Sony has an official presence here - unlike Nintendo.
