Playstation Classic - Announced

17 posts in this topic

I like how people in the comments are complaining about "only" 20 games. Like, you guys know the size of a PS1 game compared to an NES one, and the licensing nightmare re releasing a console consisting of mostly third-party titles probably is, right?

Anyway, as much as I love the PS1 (and it'd be rad if they follow up with a mini PS2), the first "next-gen" console I ever had, I just can't get bring myself to buy one of these mini consoles. I'm sure the nostalgia would wear off quickly.

But I'm still glad they're keeping them alive all the same.

That said, I hope that they have something unique to draw people in, much like the addition of Star Fox 2 did for the SNES Classic.  I've seen a suggestion about possibly including the T-Rex tech demo.

I wonder if the console will be mod-able, like the NES classic and SNES classic are. My fiance is giving this a solid eye for the holiday season so I might end up with one, and I wouldn't mind doing a run through Legend of Dragoon on it if that's the case, lol.

It'd probably be easier to mod a PSP to do that. That thing is the best PS1 emulator ever made, you can get one cheap and it's relatively easy to mod.

I likely won't have a need for a PS Classic, but my mind could easily change under the right circumcisions.

Well, sure - we used to own a PSP (the battery went bad, kinda ruined the system), and if I really wanted to I own an OUYA (yup, I do still use it) that runs Playstation games to an alright degree.

Just sayin' if I'm going to own one of these anyway, I'd like to put whatever games I want on the darn thing. :P

I just meant the PSP would be more worthy a modified console for PS1 stuff than trying to hack something like that. As the PS Classic is on its own, it's a worthy item to have.

Based on trademark filings, there's been speculation that Nintendo is releasing a N64 Classic, so we may need a thread for that at some point.

It really depends on what those games are. I think the licensing nightmare is part of why 20 sounds underwhelming to some people, it might not be likely for Sony to get all the classics that haven't seen modern re-releases so 20 games might be far less than 20 that were really sought after.

 

The original no sticks controller is also a weird choice that has fueled speculation about what games might not be included. Hopefully you can use a PS4 controller with it or something

Love some Destruction Derby.  That, Wild Arms, Twisted Metal and BAT make this a must buy imo.

Glad we are getting the original Twisted Metal and not the pure garbage that was TM 3 and 4...

Good lord, SaGa Frontier.

Have fun figuring THAT game out, folks...

(It's a fun and less unforgiving game than others in the series, it just doesn't really make any sense or is unfinished)

One of my favorite JRPGs.  I must have played through it dozens of times.  The learning curve was quite steep, though, especially when I was a sophomore in high school when it first came out.  American audiences tend to have more difficulty with that much of an open-ended game, though, which explains why it did so much poorer here than in Japan (where it remains among one of the top selling Square products for the PS One).
