Doubt it would have been cheaper. CD-roms are not mass produced anymore. This means they are expensive.

Then use a DVD-Rom.

I'd buy one. Hell, don't even have it preloaded with any games. Just have it be able to access the PS Store and support external HDDs, and we can just buy PS1 Classics off of the store. And play ones we already own.

So basically a PSTV?



Or they should have given it a PSN connection so that you could download additional games as well as having the pre-loaded ones. Oh, and made the pre-loaded games better of course, that too!



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Just re=released the PS One. They should have just put this bad boy back into production with its optical disk and HDMI support. They could have preloaded the same 20 games but with the disc drive people could revisit any game they want and have access to. They are selling the PS Classic for $100 anyway. I seriously doubt a slightly modified PS One would be much more expensive to produce.

Funny is that the PSOne itself reached 49 USD price point =p

A few things...

1. They would have likely stuck with emulation because that's cheaper. But if they simply used a better emulator or specs to brute force better performance, there would be less complaints.

2. Sony would have to produce new PS1 disks to profit from this route, also the console would be more expensive to put a CD reader in there. Instead the PS1 mini should have essentially been a PS TV. That way you could go into the PlayStation Store and buy many notable PS1 games, PSP, and even play Vita games. That would have been better than the paper weight they created.

3. They also could have just copied Nintendo. Use or create a better emulator, get more definitive titles, add ideally add more features. If the device simply worked like it should, there would be less complaints.

This. I still don't get why Sony chose to use a 3rd party emulator for their console when the PSP and Vita could both run it fine. It couldn't be that difficult to make a couple of Vita TVs and sell them as PS Classics.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

More like should have released PS1 game support on PSN for PS4.

This... so much.

The should have just made the PS4 play both the PS1 and PS2 games. We all know its possible.

One would think that by now sony knows what works for it and what doesn't.

Remakes and Re-releases make sadly more money.  I am honestly very dissapointed how they handled the PS2 games on PSN. Most were 15 Euro not exactly cheap but even then the experience was not always great. The original Jax and daxter had a 100% bug that did let the game crash after a certain quest.  Still waiting for ape escape 3 and those atlus games :(.






Sega has already released mini consoles like that where its preloaded with like 80 games and has a cartridge slot, so I'd be nice if Sony did the same.

However I mentioned in a previous post they shouldve just done a PS1 classic with no games installed. You turn it on and itll take you to a mini PS store where you can choose 20 out of 100 PS1 games to download. And once you select the games and download them that's it, cant change it. Cause I see the problem is just the selection, there's just way too many great PS1 games that a lot of us would have a much different selection.

But that doesn't apply. No one is going to say they won't buy the SoTC or R&C remakes because they can play the PS2 originals on their PS4. Those remakes are practically new games. The only way I see this affecting anything is with regards t remasters which are usually just uprezzed versions of  games. 

If there is one thing MS is din rights its their approach to BC. I personally will not buy a game simply because its been uprezed (remastered) but I will buy a remake in a heartbeat. I bought R&C, SoTC and will be buying RE2 without a doubt. I have however not bought a single remaster ever. With exception to TLoU but that was because the first time I was playing it was on my PS4.
