I'm honestly having a hard time thinking sony is satisfied with this list, the music licensing obviously makes it hard for them but how they thought it okay to not have the following games (or any of the sequels) for a classic ps1 console is beyond me;
Gran turismo
Legacy of Kain
Crash
Wipeout
Silent hill
Tony hawk
Suikoden
Tomb Raider
Klonoa
Parasite eve

These games also not just my personal preferences, most of them have higher review scores than the games sony included.

I'm guessing Sony is fine with it, since they put it out. Whether any particular gamer is satisfied, well, that's another question. I've heard some positive reactions and some negative ones. People have games they feel should have been on there, but aren't. Oh well. Licensing issues, I assume.

I'm not going to buy it, because I'm not into replaying old games. I wasn't ever a PS1 guy, either. The list is better than the one posted earlier, though.

There's nothing by way of rewind feature, or anything much beyond barebones emulation. Perhaps we've been spoilt in recent years by the work of companies like Digital Eclipse, but the lack of options present in the PlayStation Classic is a disappointment.

...

This is, at best, a functional take on the mini-console phenomenon, and a cute stocking filler for the coming Christmas period - even if the price doesn't quite reflect that. It most certainly is not a decent emulator, and far from the best way to play this (limited) selection of games.

I really don't like these low effort products...

I would actually like to pick up a broken one of these for $5 for purely decorative purposes.
