Amazon drops the price of the PS1 Classic...Are you MOVED to buy one?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Amazon drops the price of the PS1 Classic...Are you MOVED to buy one?

They used cappy emulator software for it.... so its a big pass.
These classic consoles need to atleast match up to pc emulation levels, or its a no buy reguardless of price.

Then they need the right games as well.
PSclassic just doesnt get it right.... feels like a "I can do it too", instead of a "I did this well buy me" type of deal.

Flop hard, LoDless creature!

if it was that price I would consider it as an ornament and for the 2x usb joypads... that said, they're not even Dualshocks so they've little use with any modern game on the PC.

Do we wonder if there was anyone at the design meeting on this that worried this would flop? Was there someone within the company who knew they were heading in the wrong direction? Or do we think the entire division just said, "Look, those sheep are buying the NESmini and SNESmini in droves, the PS1mini is a sure thing! In fact, we're so sure we'll charge $100 and make a killing!"



Nope. Even if it was free, I would probably still chuck it in the bin. Terrible device that simply isn't worth your coin at any price.

If Sony actually put some effort into it and built a quality platform, my opinion would be very different.

Even they were dualshocks, we need to pass a message, nobody should buy it as it is.

I'd rather emulate the games on a PC or buy PS1 classics on PS3.

I'd consider paying $20 for it. I figure I'd get a few hours of fun out of it, and that's about what I'm willing to spend for a few hours of gaming enjoyment.



The problem isn't the price, it's the poor effort put into it by sony as a cheap cash in. But no, it would have to be like 30 bucks for me to even consider buying one just for the hell of it.



I buy it if it at 15 dollars though i guess most people would feel ripped off paying 15 for it , I wouldn't pay full price nor 70 by amazon I hope PS2 classic is good

Agree 100% like I said.... as it stands the 2 controllers have super limited use, even for emulation of psone games on the PC you would still be better off getting a 3rd party pad with the 2 analogue sticks or just using a X360 pad.

 

Unless you're just playing the games which came packaged with this system... then you might be fine with the missing sticks... but still if you were playing some of the best playstation games, chances are you aren't going to be limiting yourself to these 20 titles, don't get me wrong games like FFVII, MGS and Tekken 3 are fantastic, but that's just about it really for my interest in it if they had at least chucked in a version of the emulator which gave access to any of the features you can get on the PC then I'd be more interested, but as it stands, this dedicated device for playing Playstation one games is one of the worst ways in 2018 to play those titles.
