The PlayStation Classic And The Mystery Of 36 Locked Games

You know how all fans enjoy a good easter egg, it’s the satisfying “Aha!” moment that comes with being in the know — that also explains why fans are constantly on an easter egg hunt.

With the recent release of Sony’s PlayStation Classic, interested parties have used their  excavating skills and unearthed some secrets about the mini console.

According to a code dump on GitHub, extracted from the PlayStation Classic’s PCSX emulator, 36 games may have been under consideration, aside from the 20 that’s released. We’re seeing a couple of our favourite classics in the list, like Silent Hill, Tomb Raider and, of course, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. And… now we’re just itching to try our hands at Quidditch flying practice again, bloody hell.

For a full list of the games, look here:

  • Chocobo’s Mysterious Dungeon
  • Colin McRae Rally
  • Crash Bandicoot
  • Crash 2
  • Toy Story 2
  • Driver
  • Ehrgeiz
  • Fighting Force
  • Gran Turismo
  • GTA 2
  • Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
  • Kagero
  • Klonoa
  • Kula World
  • Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
  • Medal of Honor
  • MediEvil
  • Mega Man Legends
  • Mr. Driller G
  • Paca Paca Passion
  • PaRappa the Rapper
  • Parasite Eve
  • RayStorm
  • Ridge Racer
  • Silent Hill
  • Spec Ops: Stealth Patrol
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3
  • Street Fighter EX Plus Alpha
  • Suikoden
  • Tomb Raider
  • Tomb Raider 2
  • Tomba
  • Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2
  • Vagrant Story
  • Wild Arms 2
  • Xevious 3D/G+

While it’s a downright shame that these games didn’t make it to the console, we’re guessing it’s got something to do with intellectual property licensing. Well, at the very least, Final Fantasy VII made the cut. It’s probably worth it just to experience the heart-palpitating horrors of One Winged Angel in full, polygonal glory.
