Sony: Playstation Classic

https://kotaku.com/sony-just-announc...ole-1829159574

If Nintendo can do it, Sony can too: the company just announced the PlayStation Classic, a small retro console that comes bundled with a range of the original console’s best/most popular games (including Final Fantasy VII).

It’ll be out on December 3 in the US, Canada, Europe, Japan and Australia, and includes games like Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms. There’ll be 20 bundled titles in total, but those five are the only ones announced at the moment.

Annoyingly, like the SNES Classic, the PlayStation Classic won’t include an AC adaptor, with the only power option being a bundled USB cable.

The PlayStation Classic will include two original PS1 controllers and a HDMI cable, and cost US$99.99 (€99.99 in Europe, AUD$150 in Australia).

Not to mention, a lot of PS1 titles are available on the PS3, and I assume PS4.

Pretty sure the nes classic came with a usb/AC adapter.

I never liked the og PS. So this is a pass anyway. And WAY overpriced.

Pretty sure you can grab a used PS3, install a homebrew on it and download whatever Ps1/2/3 ROMs you want

I don't see this working out so well for Sony. They don't have the nostalgia-obsessed fanbase that Nintendo does.

My generation does.
I grew up on this, soldered a mod chip... And had over 100 copied games. Lots of pirating during this gen, which made it awesome for the community to share games over the internet. 56k sucked for downloading 700mb tho

The PS logo and start up sound is nostalgic!

Wouldn't buy tho....

I bought one and modded it with that chip a couple years after it had been out...I still barely played. I didnt like PS until PS3...and that was like 2-3 after it initially came out.

Idk about this.. the Nintendo version worked because the games havent been easily available/accessible except through a physical copy or an emulator. Sony has already ported most of the games worth playing making them buyable through the PS store for PS3/4

I do miss the PS1 days though...Xenogears, Legend of the Dragoons, Nascar Rumble and Tony Hawk

Ohhh right forgot about the GameCube version. Which isn't even in HD.

thought they remastered it, but I see it's only MGS2 & 3.

As much as I wanted this. It’s a hard pass for me.

Poor emulation.
Also they’re using PAL games cause theyre easier to run since it’s at 50fps.

Fighting Force was fun. Gran Turismo sounds good but since I already have a PS4, I'd rather play the newest one.

FUnny how they rejected a lot of great games that actually sold really well on Playstation back in the day. MediEvil should have been an easy addition. I also remember Soul Reaver being popular. Rightfully so since it was fun

Agreed. I’ll wait until they’re in the bargain bin.


then again they’ve been hacked to run at 60fps and run games off a USB drive.


but then I also saw that people are able to use the Amazon FireTV 4k stick to play PS games

Cart wheel has it for 40% off...which is $60, unless they already put it on sale, in which case its on top of that price.
