Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony Considering Playstation Classic

Nostalgia is a near-endless mining source in gaming. Many companies often dig into their past and remaster or re-release whatever might bring back your childhood memories. Sony might be attempting to do just that, as they are internally considering making a PLAYSTATION CLASSIC, according to a recent interview.

Speaking with Mantan Web (and translated by ComicBook), Sony Interactive Entertainment President and CEO John Kodera (also known as Tsuyoshi) described the company's attitude towards making a PS1 packed with old games. He stated that the company was mulling over the idea of making a PLAYSTATION CLASSIC. However, he seemed to suggest that the company was only discussing the possibility.

"Our company is always digging up past assets," said Kodera in the translation. "I think there are various ways to do (a classic console). There have been discussions happening (within the company) on what kind of ways are there."

The PS5 Exists.

hmm, wouldn't most of the good games from the PS1 being available on modern platforms already kind of screw that over though? Most of the good stuff got re-released digitally on PS3, a lot is on PS4 or Steam. Some like Crash and soon Spyro have been completely remade for modern platforms.

It just seems kind of redundant to me.

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

Of course they do. They need to keep the tradition of copying Nintendo alive! ;P



Official member of VGC's Nintendo family, approved by the one and only RolStoppable. I feel honored.

Depending on games and price, maybe. I don’t think PSone games hold up as well as NES and SNES though.

While I agree, I think it depends too. I remember when I first got my PS1 I loved playing Assault Rigs and Battle Arena Toshinden. If they can compile a bunch of games that are cult classic with super popular ones it might work.

If it has the Suikoden games, I'll buy it at a high price.

If it doesn't? I'll probably still buy it at a high price.

This. As many Playstation games were early 3D era, they don't hold up nearly as well as the 2D classics.



Sounds like an awesome idea, i'd buy it if it had a good lineup of games.



Nothing to see here, move along

ps2 classic would be much better, ps1 hasn't aged well.

I think it depends entirely on what's available to them. There's a lot of trash on PS, but there's a few gems.

Symphony of the Night, the Final Fantasy titles, Metal Gear Solid, the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro would all be major pulls. Then you have the "smaller" games like the Tony Hawks', Tekkens, Resident Evils, Tomb Raiders, Metal Slug X, CTR, PaRappa, Syphon Filter, Gran Turismo and Ridge Racer.

Throw in some fan service. Suikoden? Xenogears? Vagrant Story? Chrono Cross? Tenchu?

Lot of potential in that platform.
