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.
