Spoiler: What's Inside
Not all of them. Wild Arms is still pretty solid, even if the fight animations are gimmicky/dated. The game is a solid JRPG.
Suikoden 1 and 2 are fantastic. MGS is still MGS and it's rock solid even to this day. Yes, I vastly prefer the PSX version over the GC remake. Mainly, because the remake didn't restructure the AI or the environment to take into account the new move set they added, thus broke their own game.
There's a lot of stuff about the PSX that is fantastic. I'm just curious what the whole platter is going to be. I still own the majority of the games that I'd want. So, it's not the most intriguing thing. Especially since HDMI connection is achieved through PS3/PS Vita TV.
How deep cut is it going to be? The thing about the Nintendo stuff is that it included rarities and hard to come by classics. Thus, the value was there. I'm trying to think of any rare game that would be included on the PSX Classic; as anything rare...is really, really niche.
Earlier this year my kid played through the original 3 Spyro games on my PS1.
Because of that, my PS1 probably got more use than my Wii or Xbox 360 this year.
Those Spyro games are getting remastered.
That's what's caused them to want to go play the originals.
Wonder what type of deal Sony has with Square for FF7 since it's on the Play store for $16?
FF9 is $20
There's still a fair number of games that hold up. I never messed with consoles until recently (went from an Amiga to a PC) but I've been slowly wading though the entire PSX catalog using retropie on a raspberry pi and launchbox on the PC. In The Hunt, Einhander, R-Type Delta, R-Types, Raiden Project, are all pretty decent along with a bunch of Japanese shootemups I won't attempt to recall the names of from memory.
They've certainly kept my attention longer than the Intellivision or Magnavox Odyssey catalog.
I'd be happy if every PS was backwards-compatible. My problem with retro consoles is the amount of space they take up. There is only so much I can stack near my TV before it looks like a rummage sale.
My poor SNES classic is collecting dust. Got too many new games to play to go back to older ones.
This is cool but in reality, you're much better off with a Raspberry Pi or Emulator software such as Retroarch, the games will look ALOT better anyway. I love using Retroarch, my Playstation , Gamecube & N64 games have never looked better.
Games wish list :
Metal gear solid
Spyro the dragon
I already have this and more with my PS Vita. Seeing a PSX game I loved on a 60+ inch screen ruins my nostalgia. They really do shine on smaller screens.
Pre-ordered. Looking forwards to the complete list of games. If it sucks, I'll be one of the people selling it for $200;-)
Am I the only one who never knew this was a thing? I never had this issue or even heard of someone else doing this until now.
I wouldn't count on GT games coming out on it. The licensing will be too much of a headache/expansive from the car manufacturers.
I wonder where they got that idea from?
I'll pass. I'm happy with my fat back compatible PS3.
still have a soft spot for xenogears.
They’re on the iPad for the same price I’m pretty sure. I got both of them for my international flights with a decent controller.
Now if we could get FF8.
I never had a PS1 so I'm a little curious. But I'm not down with paying gouging prices, so if it can't be gotten from Amazon or etc online then screw it, emulate it
Brings back clear memories of their ad campaigns:
"pray-stay-shun...You Are Not E"
The ones that tried to do complex 3D... yea... but ones that still hold up IMO:
Final Fantasy Tactics
Vagrant Story (it's a stretch, lol get it?, but still impressive cut scenes and things look okay once you get into gameplay)
almost any 2d fighting game
I'll pass. I have a Vita and most of the PS1 games I want to play are on it.
aren't they just as bad today?
Some games. GTA IV has some bad initial loading times,but once you get going you’re good. The PS was constantly loading.
I'm most interested in the controllers. It doesn't look like they're using the same old (larger) hook-ups from the PS1/PS2 era. If those are USB, they'd make for a fine fight pad on other platforms.
