I hated Battle Arena Toshinden so much, I actually bit the disc in half. Crazy because it got like a 98% in my favorite gaming mag at the time.

What did you hate about it?

Not too happy about :

Battle Arena Toshinden
Cool Boarders 2
Grand Theft Auto
Jumping Flash!

Rest are pretty decent imo.

Would have loved if there where some more RPGs on it.
Like Chrono Trigger + Chrono Cross.
why not also put Persona 2 : Innocent Sin +  Persona 2 : Eternal Punishment  on there?
Suikoden 1 & 2?

P2IS is Japan only. P2EP has no EU version. That's why.


And licensing for everything else I guess

This is definitely the best version of a console to hand over to the kids and let them have fun with your own nostalgia. I know I have been spoiled with today's standards for graphics, mechanics, gameplay and then of course trophies. Truth if the matter is we want to see FF7, Metal Gear, and Syphon Filter remade in today's standards with the technology we have now.

It's a great line-up - only one or two filler games. Most of the games on the list were great or amazing for their time, buuuuuut they look and play like shit nowadays, so I won't be buying this (and kind of feel sorry in advance for a large number of people who I suspect are going to be disappointed when they actually sit down to play them). If they were being remade RE2 style I'd be all over it, but alas that's too much to ask for.

I was given a virtually brand new PS1 a few years ago and was super excited to play some of the games that had defined my childhood. But honestly they were better left as nostalgic memories; I played each game for maybe 10 minutes before I was like 'yikes, games really have advanced hugely in last 15 years or so'.

pretty disapointing lineup imo. I've heard people saying the reason Sony doesn't put ps1 games on the ps4 store is because they wanted to take the Nintendo strategy. If that's true, I think if this fails, it might end up being a good thing after all

There's weirdly a lot of things missing on that list. No symphony of night,crash,spyro, a lot of decent jrpg's, only one resident evil, no tomb raider etc.
I know we can't please everyone, but i really think this list is lacking weight. But that's just me.

On the bright side, the original persona is an expensive game to get these days, so it's nice there's a way to get it today.

It is honestly not weirdly.

Make any list of 20 games and people will say it misses a lot.
I probably could come up with 50 good/Great titles and people will say I miss out of a lot.

There's a huge distinction between "any list" and "list of no-brainers".  The PlayStation was Sony's first console.  A PlayStation Classic should have the games that defined the console.  Nintendo's 1st Classic System had 7 of the NES' Top 10 sellers on it.  The PlayStation Classic has 3.  The NES Classic also had the big 3rd party titles that everyone remembers the NES for:  Castlevania, Ninja Gaiden, Mega Man 2, Double Dragon II, Super Contra, Ghosts n' Goblins...  Meanwhile, Crash Bandicoot (The PlayStation's mascot from that era!!), Spyro the Dragon, and Tomb Raider do not have a single entry to represent them.  I owned a PlayStation and spent a lot of time gaming on it, but the list that Sony came up with to represent their first ever console is extremely underwhelming to me.  I don't think they did a good job at all compiling a list of games representative of that system.  I'm not talking about leaving out niche games that I enjoyed personally, like Suikoden, Vandal Hearts, Vanguard Bandits, Vagrant Story, etc.  I'm talking about games that the system is remembered for in general.  Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil and PaRappa the Rapper were both in PlayStation All Stars Battle Royal, and neither of their games are represented here either.

This is looking like a pass for me. I already own almost all of the games on this list I really care about, and the few I don't I can just get elsewhere for much cheaper than buying the PS Classic. Bit disappointed with the line-up really.

The only reason to own any the classic mini consoles is collector value. There's no consumer friendly way to view the mini consoles.

Basically the question is, do you want to spend a decent chunk of money to have something that looks like a mini NES/SNES/PS1? If you don't, then you shouldn't get any of them.

Crossed Out - What I think should have been cut and replaced with.

I'm gonna lose many hours playing this. Hopefully it can be modded to play any PS1 rom so I can sculpt this list to my choosing.

This is a disappointingly poor list. PS1 was a powerhouse console, with no shortage of great games. Yet this collection is missing a lot of best-sellers and a lot of classics.

Bit disappointed because of some weird choices. Puzzle Fighter for example.

Would have liked Alundra, Tombi, Pac World, Suikoden, Parappa the Rapper, Gran Turismo, Hercules, Toy Story, Spyro or Crash, Mega Man Legends. There is so much more to choose from.

Anyway, hope this thing gets hacked fast so we can put ISOs on it.
