Sony announced last September 18 the PlayStation Classic, bringing nostalgia to PlayStation fans by announcing a miniature version of the original PlayStation, or PlayStation 1, which was released almost 25 years ago. The miniaturized console is estimated to be 45% smaller from the original.
The design of PlayStation Classic is exactly the same from the first PlayStation console, having the same logo packaging, and button layout. It has an HDMI and USB cable, two wired controllers, and a virtual memory card. It also comes with 20 pre-loaded games, including Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms, Jumping Flash, and Ridge Racer Type 4. Other titles will be announced on a further date.
The announcement garnered reactions online, some positive, some not really happy about it, and some weighing in on what other games should be pre-loaded into the console. Check some of it below:

I will seriously consider getting a PlayStation Classic if it has Megaman Legends 1 and/or 2 on it

The PlayStation Classic is cute and I want it … but taking the analog sticks off the controller really fucks it in ways I don't even think Sony fully understands. Ape Escape isn't possible now. Neither is Crash Team Racing. Medievil will probably be a real bitch to play too. pic.twitter.com/Gyo4X8fAtL

if that Playstation classic doesn't have at least 1 Crash, 1 Spyro, and 1 Rayman, then whats the point?
