At this point in time the PlayStation Classic has become a better punching bag than Glass Joe, so it’s no surprise that forum dwellers are frothing at the mouth over a Tweet which claims the micro-console has dozens of other great games on it. The reality is that there are simply references to them in the source code, meaning they were potentially tested at some point.

Here's the full lineup, as taken from a since deleted tweet:

The titles do peek at an even better PS Classic, though, and show just how cool the mini-system could have been with a larger game selection. Among the inclusions are Crash Bandicoot, PaRappa the Rapper, Tomba!, and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. The reality is that a lot of these games would have never got through licensing – Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, for example.

It shows just how vast the PSone’s library was, though – there are 36 games referenced here and they all could have easily made the micro-console’s catalogue. Pair that with the 20 already included and the dozens upon dozens entirely absent and you have the platform for an absolutely mammoth mini-device. The problem is the licensing and the fact that the more software you add the more the product will cost.
