Q: Can I connect to PSN to download new games to PlayStation Classic?
PlayStation Classic is a plug and play offline experience, and as such cannot connect to the internet. There are no plans to bring new content or updates to PlayStation Classic post-launch.
Q: Can I buy extra games for the PlayStation Classic?
The PS Classic is preloaded with 20 of the best games from the original PlayStation. It is not possible to purchase additional games for PlayStation Classic.
Q: How do memory cards / save states work?
Each title can support up to 15 virtual memory card slots, which you can manage from the console’s main UI. Just like the original PlayStation, once you delete a save file it fades away and cannot be recovered.
Additionally, pressing the Reset button on the PlayStation Classic console will bring you back out to the system’s main UI, creating a restore point wherever you left off in the game you were playing. Next time you play that game, you can return to the Restore point you had created before.
