A lot of people are saying the same thing. Metal Jesus did a video yesterday about cancelling his pre-order for the system and his reasons why and it already has 165000 views!

The outcry is getting very loud, to the point where I wonder if Sony will say or do anything about it. Too late to change the game list but maybe they could drop the price a bit?

Seems like a nice mix of games. Never was a big fan of Sony or the Playstation till the Playstation Portable came out. The PSP is a very nice handheld.

They could have added some Road Rash games and if not maybe some sports games would have been a nice touch. I may be off but I thought Sony made some good American football games, under the 989 studios.

Early reviews are starting to come out and it turns out the game list is just one of many problems.

Here's a good video I just watched.



Highlights:

Very basic interface with no extras
Poor emulation quality
9 of the 20 games on it are Pal versions and therefore slower
Only one save slot per game

I don't think Sony could have screwed this up more if they tried!

It will be interesting to see the sales numbers a month or so after launch, how many people will take a pass on this? I know im not dishing out a 100 dollars for this.

OK, if anyone got one of these, you have to read this article:  How to hack your PlayStation Classic for more games.  It makes the system worth having.  :)

It seems Sony left some code exposed that allows for this.  Good thing someone discovered it.

Yeah it was only a matter of time till it got hacked. I was looking at after Christmas sales and Best Buy had them $50 off already. Wait a bit longer and you might be able to get one really cheap.

Yes, I'm waiting for these to hit that glorious bargain bin at half price, and then we'll inject it with the poison and play those classics in 60hz with accompanied crt scan lines. It will be what it should have been.
