Nintendo hints that a N64 Classic console is coming soon

Nintendo 64

Nintendo 64 controller trademark from Nintendo accepted

The retro console will come with two wired replica controllers, one HDMI cable, one USB cable and 20 pre-loaded classic games including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash! There also aren't many other N64-related things that we can imagine Nintendo might be planning, so it would be a reasonable guess to think this is for the next console in the Classic range.

Along those lines, the PlayStation spokesperson confirmed the PS Classic will not have any online functionality or connect to existing PSN accounts. Only five of the PlayStation Classic games have been announced so far, but we know that some of the remaining 15 will be different depending on what region you buy the PlayStation Classic in. And, sorry trophy hunters, the games included have not been altered to include trophy support.

As racing games now feature cars that are almost indistinguishable from real life, the Gran Turismo series is bound for an appearance on the PlayStation Classic as one of the defining franchises in the genre. While PlayStation didn't confirm or deny whether these remakes affected the list, the spokesperson did offer some insight into the selection process.

"There are no plans to bring new content to PlayStation Classic post-launch", a PlayStation spokesperson told IGN.

What games do you want to see on the PlayStation Classic?

My gaming years stopped a good few years ago which is why news of the Classic Playstation One being released filled me with much joy this week, we just hope they bring back a classic Federation Internationale de Football Association as part of it.
