Playstation Classic Announced
« on: September 19, 2018, 14:58:31 PM »
Looks like the rumors are true!



Launching on December 3rd for $99.99 USD. Supposed to be 20 game on it but they haven't announced them all yet.

At least Sony hasnt ripped off Europe with its pricing unlike SNK did with the NeoGeo mini, shame with all these minis is they dont have removable storage and an online store to add more.

Saw this today, so the only tempting thing to get one is the HDMI and the size, but if it’s restricted to the 20 games they announced and you cannot buy or play originals, I’d rather use my old one. Probably there’s an adapter existing for it.

Anyhow, I play my PSX games on the PS3, with smoothing.

Looks very nice and it's also a cool "mini" but the fact that it only has 20 games makes it less attractive.  No doubt it will sell boatloads, though!

It's going to depend on the final game list, but at this point I really don't see myself buying one. A lot of PS1 games really haven't aged well and the lack of analogue controllers and no rumble means some of the better games just won't be the same. It's also a little expensive compared to the NES and SNES mini consoles.

Also this!

I play the PS1 games on the PS2 Slim that I have.  I think the notion of this is cool but the implementation may fall short.
