All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format. Sony is not packaging an USB power adapter with the PlayStation Classic. You have to get one extra. The PlayStation Classic requires a USB power adapter that supports 5V, 1.0 A USB (Type A).

The PlayStation Classic controller cables are 1.5m long, which is more than double the length of the hated NES Classic controller cables. Sony did not copy everything from Nintendo when they made the PlayStation Classic.
