Today, Sony announced the full game lineup to the recently announced PlayStation Classic. Last month, Sony announced the system, to be released in December, but only revealed 5 of the promised 20 games. Those five were Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms. This led to wide speculation on the part of fans on what games would make up the other 15. Of course, Andrew and I made our predictions/wishes on what they would be. Let’s see how we stacked up to the official reveled list of 15 additional games. Continue reading

When Sony announced the PlayStation Classic console, its response to the wildly successful NES and SNES Classics from Nintendo, it promised us 20 games, but didn’t give us the full slate.
