Hackers Discover Hidden Games on the PlayStation Classic

PlayStation Classic

The PlayStation Classic has not been well-received by the gaming community for the most part. However, one group has taken a great interest in the miniature console and what it might be cable of: hackers and modders.

Recently, a source code said to be obtained from the PlayStation Classic was shared online, where an additional 36 games were found hidden within the game code. The list includes popular titles such as Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and Silent Hill, as well as cult classics like Parasite Eve and Klonoa.

Enterprising fans have examined the code and found that the games are not in a playable sate, and only fragments remain, disappointing many. The full list of removed games can be seen below.

However, according to Ars Technica, some notable names in the console modding community noticed that Sony had actually left the key to decrypting the PlayStation Classic on the device itself, which opened up a range of new possibilities. This enabled titles such as Crash Bandicoot to be played on the console from a USB flash drive.

As a result, players can now download an open source tool called BleemSync from GitHub that allows them to modify their PlayStation Classic; however, as with most hacks and mods, this does come with its own set of risks.

Removed PlayStation classic games:

  • Chocobo’s Mysterious Dungeon
  • Colin McRae Rally
  • Crash Bandicoot
  • Crash Bandicoot 2
  • Toy Story 2
  • Driver
  • Ehrgeiz
  • Fighting Force
  • Gran Turismo

  • Mega Man Legends
  • Mr. Driller G
  • Paca Paca Passion

  • Parasite Eve
  • RayStorm

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Published

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
