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

To be fair, they would have included the pal version of LoD too, so maybe it is great they fucked up, because they could have fucked up even more!

At least the thing is very easy to hack so if you take a walk on the darkside with this thing, you will get your better value out of it I guess

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. 

Derail?

If he wanted only to lambast PSMini he could have put PSMini the worse fail of all time. But let's just ignore that Labo done bad because you don't want to accept it. But good that you won't try to imply that I'm defending the ridiculous product that was PSMini. I'm pretty sure I can find plenty of defensors of Labo though.

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?

The thread is about failures of the year.

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?

Thread is about the PS Classic, so yes, you are the one being defensive and derailing the thread. It is damage control like you put it.

This is one of the biggest damage control of the year. Congrats!!

Don't get the hate. It's a collectors item, a nostalgic gift. Its not meant for someone to be played for hrs on end, More the experience of reliving the past , maybe with friends of that era, and have that good feeling for a while. Even if only for a day or 2 before being stored away on display as a piece of history more or less. I look on youtube and people are actually complaining about graphics and frame rates and performances compared to the originals.. like really?.. the games have aged bad regardless, that's not the point of it.

It is meant to be played for hours on end. That's why they include big games like FF7. And giving people a worse version of the games they love is not ideal.

Yes, this thread was always meant to be about the PS Classic. "One of the biggest fails of the year" is meant to describe the magnitude of its failure, not as an invitation to talk about other failures; otherwise the original post would have asked for the other big failures of 2018.

While the OP's intention is suspect, to put it mildly, you aren't any better with your focus on Labo while ignoring all other failures of 2018. It's a classic Nintendo vs. Sony case. On a sidenote, Labo also has its own thread.

As for flaming the PS Classic, that's not correct. Objects can't be flamed, so that would be trolling. However, something isn't trolling just because it's negative. If something is objectively a failure - and early sales reports suggest that, such as from Japan where the PS Classic debuted to 1/2 and 1/3 of the numbers of the NES Classic and SNES Classic, respectively - then any discussion about said something is bound to be negative.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

A Biased Review Reloaded / Open Your Eyes / Switch Shipments

Don't understand the hate.. Sony knew who they were targeting with this release and folks themselves knew who was going to buy. I bought one for the sheer nostalgic factor as well as hacking it so it can run other games I want it to that weren't included. The mod community is progressing ratherly nicely and soon enough I we'll get a more user friendly mod method similar to hakchi and this thing should blow up. No different from my mini nes or snes. These are consoles I grew up with and for me that was worth the entry price. Yes, you can emulate everything nowadays on anything, but.it makes no difference. Just because I can emulate nes, snes, psx, etc on most my devices, having this little piece of history I can pass down to my 1 yr old boy when he's ready to get into the gaming world justifies it all.



Man.. I hate it when your girl has to leave my place to come back to you..
