Unboxing the PlayStation Classic
 

Quote:

PlayStation Classic arrives on December 3, preloaded with 20 iconic titles from a game-changing era. Join us as we unbox this miniature recreation, which includes a console design mirroring the original PlayStation at 45% its size, two wired controllers, and a virtual memory card to save your adventures as you switch between titles.

I sure hope this thing doesn't suck. Sure seems like Sony screwed it up royally. Can't wait for my pre-order!

Who would want this thing?

I'd want it, but purely for nostalgic reasons. I wouldn't play any of these games again in a serious fashion, so I'm not in any hurry to pick up the PlayStation Classic at its 100-Euro asking price. That said, I'm not playing any games on my SNES Mini either, and I don't regret that purchase at all. I guess this is one of those instances where I can point at my sigfile: Sometimes, just owning an item is enough to make a person happy.

Well to be fair there's a collector for everything. However they obviously aren't making these items only for collectors, they want people to use it.

My question was more of a "Who in their right mind would pay that much money to play this pathetic offering?"

"iconic titles".. bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Oh wait they're serious. :p

I guess it depends on how important 100 bucks is to the person that buys it. 100 bucks isn't much to me so thank you Sony. I know I am the loner here!

Aren't almost half (9) of the games on it the slower PAL versions too? Why? What possible reason could there be to use them? I mean, this whole thing just smacks of half baked ideas.

Does it matter to people who aren't speed runners? I don't know if it's true, but aren't we talking seconds over an hour?

Mozain 12-02-2018 09:23 AM

Well I'd say it's a smoother overall experience (50 frames vs 60), but perhaps that only matters to speed runners.

The bigger question is why use the PAL versions at all?

PatrickRes9 12-02-2018 10:54 PM

Library is disappointing. Most of these games won't hold up well over age.

Mozain 12-03-2018 11:16 AM

Oh man, the more I hear about this thing the more laughable it becomes.
