Apparently this is the latest in the PS Mini's long list of blunders:

Look at the links posted above you and you will realise the footage is wrong.

Very misleading thread title then...

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

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.

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?

Yet it did sell over a million units at a much higher pricepoint aimed at a specific audience. That is a special edition price sold each time. You bet that it made them money lol. Anyway, you were the one who brought it in when it shouldn't have been. This was about the PS Classic, a classic console that failed so why?

I'll repeat again, if the product have failed to sell the first shipment so longer after release then it's a failure. But then again I'm the one being defensive or damaging control right?

Probably still gonna buy one eventually so I can hack it. The components are actually worth the original $100 price. The games aren't anywhere near that, however it is already super easy to add games.

Probably among them with Labo and some other obscure release we don't even care.

I think people care about Labo because it's innovative. But the psmini is not innovative.

Quite possible. I loved the concept, but price/execution/cardboard made me not eager anymore. So there is plenty of room for improvement and a very good second round.

The thread is about failures of the year.

It wasn't originally, but morphed into such as a way to negate the failure of the PSC.

I have yet to see anyone negating it, but I have seem plenty negating Labo. Unless you want to say the sole purpose of the thread was to troll PSMini?

Lol, reading back through the thread it was you that brought Labo into the discussion first. The clear direction was about PS1 classic and you decided to derail, interesting. 



The thing sucks.
That's what you get for screwing LoD, we screw you, Sony.
