So as you may know by now, Sony just announced their PlayStation Classic Console that will come equipped with 20 preloaded games for a mere $99. You can read all about it in our article here. The bad news, however, is that the Console will be limited to the preloaded games only. You cannot download or add more games to the console if you wanted.
