Sony has finally announced the complete list of all the PlayStation Classic titles that will come with the diminutive system, and it's pretty impressive.

After the initial five titles confirmed for the PlayStation Classic in September included Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms, people began speculating about what all it would eventually included. The official PlayStation Blog confirmed that additional games would indeed be announced at a later date, and now it's all out in the open.

If you want to keep it a secret and see what's waiting for you when you actually get the product, better stop reading now. For anyone else, continue reading on.

Ready to ruin the surprise? Here's the full list of all 20 games up for grabs on the system. 

  • 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

Overall, it's a solid list, though there are a few glaring omissions, like Parasite Eve. You'll have to pick up the Japanese version of the system if you want that. Curiously, Dino Crisis is missing as well, along with a suite of other important PlayStation titles – PaRappa the Rapper, for one. Let's not pretend that this thing won't eventually be moddable somehow, though, so we'll probably be seeing lots of creative folks adding their own games to it in the future. 

For comparison, here's the Japanese lineup:

  • Arc the Lad
  • Arc the Lad 2
  • Armored Core
  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • G Darius
  • Gradius Gaiden
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr. Driller
  • Parasite Eve
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Resident Evil
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • SaGa Frontier
  • Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo
  • Tekken 3
  • Wild Arms
  • XI [sai] (Devil Dice)

The PlayStation Classic will be 45 percent smaller than the original console and will include two normal-sized (non-DualShock) PlayStation controllers, a USB cable, HDMI cord, and virtual memory card for you to save your games. It will cost $99, though it looks like pre-orders are pretty well sold out everywhere by now.
