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.

I'll only pick one up if I can find one for under $50 and has the ability to be hacked.

Looks like this thing is a mess, I wouldn't buy it even if it did a great job emulating the games though. I would much rather have a full remake or at least a remaster than paying to play a game that looks exactly as it did 20 years ago. Look at what's been done with Ratchet and Clank, Crash and Spyro, those are things I'd much rather pay to play.

I guess it makes a nice paper weight or something to put on a shelf :)

Exactly. I would actually love a proper 3DO mini console.

Totally, I remember going to my uncles and him playing that Jurassic Park game that I never got to play myself.

Oh well... here's hoping it'll get hacked fairly soon so I can delete these games and put better ntsc games instead, honestly don't really want any of the games included except metal gear lol

It's a shame cause it's just a cash grab when it could have been something awesome.

i heard....retro dreamcast is coming
top 3 best consoles imo
I'd love having a tiny dreamcast, I hope it gets done properly. I do have a dreamcast already though with most of the good games and VGA- hdmi adapter. Only thing I do miss is being able to play virtua cop and house of the dead without digging up my old CRT.

Dude, that’d be epic. My first love, also the first and only console to die on me, well the GD reader, laser maybe, just wouldn’t spin or read any disc.

I wish Sony would go back to that design for PS5.

I know a lot of people think it looks like a toy or whatever. But I love the design of the PS1.

Can't be right that you can change the region and get 60hz ntsc versions by changing setting in the emulator right? I mean, the version installed still is ther pal version?
