The psone games have not aged well, the games of nes and snes have a nostalgic aura. Psmini is not a good emulator, nes and snes mini is a good emulator and brings the feel of the classic 8 and 16 bit era. Finally, the arcade games that reflect on the NES and SNES games have a nostalgia factor that much of the Psone library does not share.

Sure, lets just ignore the fact that there are a ton of better games they could have chosen to give us.  I am sure that had nothing to do with it.

I think Fifth Generation games have aged poorly compared to the third and fourth generation. In addition, the nostalgia factor of the NES generation is very large and was a very important console for an industry that has been renovated due to it. Despite having sold less than PSone, the NES has a bigger story importance by really boosting the gaming market, while PSone has taken a lot more advantage of the incredible distribution network that Sony had to reach the global market, which already was thirsty for video games, just look at the number of NES clones that existed everywhere. These factors have to be considered, in addition the product of Nintendo is much more well done than that of Sony.

What damage control when I acknowledge that the system is among the biggest fails together with things no one even remember?

At least LABO sold over 1.5 million.

It did? :)



I have it my mind that I must own one, same with all the other mini's that are available. I do not own any as I couldn't see myself actually playing them. I have too much of other things to do. When the psone mini was announced we all had our own selection for what we wanted to see on the system which will always result in everyone not being happy but I have to say it wasn't that great of all choice from Sony. Maybe there were licensing issues so knows our just plain bad judgement? To own then all will be the collector in me. I own the original Consoles anyway. If Sony added trophy support then I would be tempted to play these classics

Shipped, but yes if you decided to read other posts instead of jumping to defend LABO you would see that I considered LABO less failed than PS Classic. Still LABO was expected to drive HW sales for Switch and didn't, do you know what was expected of PS Classic besides a quick cash in (that we don't know if it made or not).

How did a thread about PS Classic segue into Labo? Lol

Bringing up "one of the biggest fails of the year" I believe. Had the title been something like "Random European store lists PS Mini for 40% off just a week after release" I doubt you'd be seeing much Labo talk. Toxic thread title devolves into toxic discussion every time.

Because the thread is about the biggest fails of the year.

Nonsense my dude. You should not even have mentioned LABO because at the end of the day, it is not a commercial failure. Yet, you became defensive over some tat that failed in every aspect. That is why LABO came into the mix. Bad call man.

Nope, it is in the titles "one of the biggest fails", so the title is talking about the biggest failures.

Not a comercial failure? If after 6 months in the market it doesn't sell the initial shipment that is a fail, it also didn't manage to help sales of Switch on first half of the year.

Defensive of PSmini? When was that if I have acknowledge that it failed?
