It looks like the PlayStation Classic will not be receiving any games or content post-launch and will not have any PSN functionality.

The PlayStation Classic was announced this week and we can look forward to diving back into 20 of the system’s games. However, only five games have been announced so far, Final Fantasy VIIJumping FlashRidge Racer Type 4Tekken 3, and Wild Arms. Also, the system is using the original controller rather than the first DualShock controller. It is safe to say that after the announcement, many of us were left with quite a few questions, with many hoping that the new product would address complaints of similar products. Well, it looks like some of those questions have been answered.

In a report from IGN, it was stated that the classic rendition of the first PlayStation system will not receive any games post-launch. IGN was contacted via email by a PlayStation spokesperson who stated: “There are no plans to bring new content to the PlayStation Classic post-launch.”

On top of that, the spokesperson confirmed that PS Classic will not connect to PSN. So, I sadly won’t be able to get a platinum trophy for Final Fantasy 7 on the tiny console.

Additionally, it was confirmed that the 20 titles selected are specifically tailored to each region.

Make sure to check out DualShockers’ list of 15 games that we would like to be put on the system. The PlayStation Classic is set to release on December 3rd for $99.99.
