Sony Playstation Classic drops to $59.99

Recommended Posts

I already have a "PlayStation Classic" it's called the PS3. I guess for a disposable novelty item this thing is ok for casuals. But not having WipEout XL or Front Mission 3 is tragic.

I agree it is hard to make a list of 20 games of PS1 that would make everyone happy but that doesn't make this list any less underwhelming :p

Chrono Trigger isn't even a real PS1 game and the PS port is hot garbage.

Well I enjoyed the copy that I played on my Playstation home entertainment console :shrug:

Good call on Driver. I put a ton of hours in that game back in the day. The drifting never got old.

Yeah I'm going to go ahead and skip this. Also, I imagine a lot of these games have aged like shit. The NES and SNES classic did well because 2D games just hold up over time better

I tried to play FFVI on that Anthology thing they came out with on the PS1 because it is of course my favorite game ever. It was garbage. Mostly it was the load times if I remember right. For some reason it literally took minutes for anything to load.

Yepppp. Those games had issues when ported over, primarily due to load times. 

 

You're better off playing them on just about anything else.

No wipeout is a crime. The demo of wipeout 1 I got in CD form from a game magazine is basically what sold me on the playstation in general, it was so damn cool. 

 

I wonder if they mainly included the first games in series (despite having superior sequels) is due to this being a nostalgia device more than a selection of the system's best games - they could never actually release that version of the PS1 classic.

I think Gran Turismo isn't there due to car licensing reasons because otherwise, that probably would have been an easy inclusion.

 

But wtf would Earthworm Jim 2 be there? :p I mean, I liked it too, but I associate that more with SNES/Genesis.

I suspect that the music licensing from Gran Turismo is also a big issue.

 

My recollection was that Earthworm Jim 2 was largely panned on PS1/Saturn (not because it was a worse version, but because it was exactly the same game...)

I'm not sure why but that forced-hype modern song juxtaposed with the, for modern audiences, ultra outdated graphics in the trailer was really funny to me.

Metal Gear Solid

Resident Evil 2

Final Fantasy 7

Final Fantasy Tactics 

Gran Turismo 2

SOTN

Wipeout XL

Jet Moto

Tekken 3

Suikoden 2

Silent Hill

Would be my personal list of nostalgia + games I feel are iconic to the PS1. 

 

If if I just did my favorite Ps1 games it would be a lot different though.

It’s hard to say with out seeing the exact text or see what gets posted on their open source site. They’re required to list them even if they only borrowed a few lines of code.

I would not be surprised if these turn out to be the exact same hardware that is in the NES classic and SNES classic (those two have the same innards).  It is just a different cover and emulator running.  Easy way for these companies to make money.

What did you guys expect? Unique hardware to be made? I sure wouldn't want them making their own emulator when the PCSX dudes spent years and years perfecting theirs.

The pal games on the device is bull crap.

 

I guess depending on what game you want, the jpn unit might be better. Hopefully this thing gets hacked quickly.

 

-edit-

just saw the confirmation on us blog. -.-

 

-edit 2-

I still like the build of the unit but Sony really is cocking up the software side (i’m good with 95%of the games but again why pal?).

Because they don't know how to rip their own games and the pal version is the only version they could find on the internet.
