Featuring Final Fantasy VII, Tekken 3, Wild Arms and 17 other legendary titles, the new mini-console launches December 3 at an MSRP of $99.99 (CAD$129.99).

PlayStation Classic

Almost 25 years ago, the original PlayStation was introduced to the world. Developed by Sony Computer Entertainment, it was the first home console in video game history to ship 100 million units worldwide, offering consumers a chance to play games with real-time 3D rendered graphics in their homes.

Today, we are excited to announce that we are bringing back the original PlayStation experience in a new miniaturized version – PlayStation Classic! The console will come pre-loaded with 20 classic titles, including fan-favorites such as Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.

The mini console is approximately 45% smaller than the original PlayStation, and it emulates the original’s look and feel by featuring similar controllers and packaging. Long-time fans will appreciate the nostalgia that comes with rediscovering the games they know and love, while gamers who might be new to the platform can enjoy the groundbreaking PlayStation console experience that started it all. All of the pre-loaded games will be playable in their original format.

PlayStation Classic

Available for pre-order at select retailers across the US and CAN, each unit will also come with an HDMI cable to connect to their TV, a USB cable, and two controllers for local multiplayer within compatible titles. PlayStation Classic will be available for $99.99 USD (MSRP) / $129.99 CAN (MSRP) on December 3, 2018 – a historic date for all of us at PlayStation.

Visit PlayStation.com for more details on regional availability, and stay tuned to the Blog for the full lineup of titles coming to PlayStation Classic. There are more fan favorites, and we can’t wait to share more details in the coming months.

    What are the full game list?
    Does it come with Final Fantasy VIII?

    TySoltaur said:

    September 19th, 3:15 am

    Seriously, only 20 games when the NES mini and SNES mini have more pre-loaded games on them?

    AAG8290 said:

    September 19th, 3:47 am

    I loved PS1 from the start, and still to this day! PS1 games came with an originality and style of development that you don’t see in today’s games! Many PS1 games were sized-down original arcade classics or original designs. Will I be able to play PS1 classsic game CD’s on it!? I see Ridge Racer type 4 will be one of the 20 in it. I still have my orginal RRT4 cd!

    “Does it come with Final Fantasy VIII?”

    Really?

    “PlayStation Classic! The console will come pre-loaded with 20 classic titles, including fan-favorites such as Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms.”

    @TySoltaur
    NES ROMs top out around 512KB, and SNES ROMs go up to about 4MB. PS1 EBOOTs start somewhere from 12 to 25 times that and can go upwards of 2.5GB (such as if the 5-disc Riven were brought into the mix). That alone makes a smaller game count reasonable.

    Mundus06 said:

    September 19th, 4:28 am

    I looks like the console has real outlets for controllers. Does this work with PS2 and PS1 controllers? Since i literally have like 5 or so still lying around 3 that are as good as new. Would be awesome if i could get any use out of them.

    CtK4949 said:

    September 19th, 4:31 am

    It better have Gran Turismo and Metal Gear Solid!!

    markomasa86 said:

    September 19th, 4:53 am

    Please!! Metal Gear Solid must be there!!! And Also crash team racing; FFVIII and IX; Legend of Dragoon; GT; Spyro; ahh, too many games!!!
    Thank you I will buy this for sure

    starrdaniel said:

    September 19th, 5:05 am

    i’ll only get it if it comes with Chrono Cross or the legend of dragoon

    Pulsarinferno said:

    September 19th, 5:25 am

    Please confirm Legends of Dragoon is on this!

    IkkiManami641 said:

    September 19th, 5:45 am

    Don’t buy this crap. Sony could of gave us ps classic on the PS4 but didn’t want too. Games like Xenogears, breathe of fire, legend of dragon, dragon ball Z Final Bout but nope.

    CordovaLark said:

    September 19th, 6:37 am

    Xenogears? If not at least give us a port to the PS4…

    NOVA1979 said:

    VIII = 8
    VII = 7

    So it was a valid question.

    OmarMcCaws said:

    September 19th, 6:46 am

    I was exited for about 2 minutes until i realized it dosnt look like it can play discs, 20 games loaded and no way to play my own discs, no thanks waste of money

    goblingirl_ said:

    September 19th, 6:46 am

    I would rather play these on PSN.

    AnotherGreatApe said:

    September 19th, 6:47 am

    Please include Suikoden 1 and/or 2.

    AnotherGreatApe said:

    September 19th, 6:48 am

    Suikoden is a true PlayStation classic. A console true to the classics must include this.

    frankericguzzi said:

    September 19th, 7:09 am

    129$ for 20 games?? jesus… great way for sont to make extra money… get a simulator on your PC or MAC laptop, hooked up to my TV with HDMI, and play with a wireless remote (i use my ps4 remote). FREE! and ALL THE GAMES lol… thanks but no thanks Sony. what a disappointment

    For only 20 games it seems a bit undercut for the price. Sony, please consider adding more games to the pot!! Still very excited about this release!

    NHLQUICKS said:

    September 19th, 8:00 am

    Only games I want for it are Crash Bandicoot and Cool Boarders

    sedat78 said:

    September 19th, 8:29 am

    I have bunch of PS1 games that I’ve purchased which I can only play on my PS3 that I no longer have because I upgraded to PS4 Pro. Please bring PS1 support to the PS4 , so we can play our existing purchased games. Be on the Gamers side for once Sony!!!!

    woody2424 said:

    September 19th, 8:53 am

    You’re going to have a lot of upset people who don’t know why their PlayStation Classic isn’t turning on, or keeps rebooting due to insignificant power from using their own USB wall adapter that came with their phone 5 years ago.

    For $100, you can throw that in. Make sure everyone’s gaming experience is enjoyable.

    Nation-of-IMF said:

    September 19th, 8:55 am

    Super excited for this… but a few games this absolutely needs are: Final fantasy tactics; Grand Turismo; Command and Conquer; Tomb Raider; and Syphon Filter.
    If it doesn’t have at least one of these, I might wait and pick up the Xbox edition of FFVII next year… as that’s the one core game that [so far] makes this interesting.

    Damagelncs said:

    September 19th, 9:07 am

    Am I the only one hoping for Legend of Dragoon? How about some love for Ape Escape? Tony Hawk Pro Skater?

    So FF VIII?

    Ares84 said:

    September 19th, 10:49 am

    I hope it will have Crash Bandicoot 1-3, Tomb Raider 1-5, Soul Blade, Need for Speed 3, Croc 1 & 2, Nightmare Creatures, Nuclear Strike on it.

    Also, will we be able to buy games? Or if we have discs (I currently own 165 PS1 games on disc) can we transfer those onto this system?

    When and where can I preorder. I would love to have one….no…I MUST have one!

    ShinigamiXWing said:

    September 19th, 11:09 am

    Will it have Azure Dreams on it?

    Burnout713 said:

    September 19th, 11:20 am

    Why the hell wouldn’t they include the DualShock controllers? Idiotic mistake already.

    simoxeh said:

    I only want one thing. A USB or cartridge port that new game can be sold later and played on the system.

    Takechiyo-E said:

    September 19th, 12:34 pm

    Dragon quest 7 (Dragon warrior 7 in west) must be included.

    Sakuske said:

    September 19th, 12:35 pm

    * A compatible USB AC adaptor (not included) is required to use this console. Use an AC adaptor that supports 5 V, 1.0 A USB (Type A) output

    Are you kidding me? $100 and no AC adaptor!?! pfff

    Tankadin said:

    September 19th, 12:55 pm

    Why is there no AC adapter included? I hope this is a mistake. I swear I will walk into a store and steal whatever “official” ac adapter Sony tries to sell just to spite them if they seriously do not include one in the box.

    Thxrsdxy said:

    September 19th, 2:25 pm

    Some of you really do set yourselves up for failure with over expecting but I will say the funniest comment so far has been “be on the gamers side for once, Sony!” in reference to Sony adding ps1 support to ps4. I maybe wrong but I don’t know alot of people who are begging for this feature other than nostalgia hounds.

    JBirdSRT8 said:

    September 19th, 2:50 pm

    Please put Nightmare Creatures on it!!!!

    MavrickHuntr_0 said:

    September 19th, 3:25 pm

    …. $100 for only 20 games AND you dont include a power cable? What a rip off.

    Alternian said:

    September 19th, 3:31 pm

    The price is pretty steep honestly (especially for us Canucks), but I’m impressed they really did it. I wonder if we’ll see a PS2 and 3 Mini down the line.

    GhStRdR2k said:

    September 19th, 3:41 pm

    If it comes with the game “Board Game: Top Shop” I’ll buy it no questions asked.

    bobey4 said:

    September 19th, 3:44 pm

    I didn’t get the ps4 I’m still a loyal fan of the ps3 but Sony you out done your self yet again I already pre order the ps1 Classic and happy for it I do like that you staying on top of the gaming industry just the first ps4 wasn’t to much of a upgrade the ps4 pro would be my idea ps4 consoles but I will be on the for front for the ps5 if I have the $$$ will go for the day lunch hopefully you make the ps5 like a power house just like the ps3 did can’t wait to get a piece of history the ps1 Classic thank you Sony

    Davesumoto said:

    September 19th, 5:26 pm

    I am still sore not being able to buy my PS1 classics I bought on PS3 on my PS4. There is no way I am buying this. Give us our PS1 digital collections on PS4!

    kainiakrad said:

    September 19th, 7:14 pm

    Hi ppl . i really like old ps1 games are if you consider that games like ff7 is 4 disc and orher titles may be the same . Nintendo and the others dont stake up , I’m not saying nes was bad . it’s the first unit i had and my sister in-law and i had competition on whom would beat games first . i beat mario 12&3 first . never care for sega except for sonic and mega man is back on tv too but i can’t wait to get the ps1 classic because it probably will save money and room ( since games will store in it and not my ps3) so this is a deal . thanks to all and play harder

    “Seriously, only 20 games when the NES mini and SNES mini have more pre-loaded games on them?”

    Do you really not understand how much larger PS1 games are then 8-bit and 16-bit Nintendo titles?

    iPunisherX said:

    September 20th, 11:50 am

    @TySoltaur :You cannot compare NES and SNES game size with the ones from a PS1. Just Final Fantasy VII is 3 discs. Use your logic here! This is like 10 to 30 times bigger than the Nintendo generation.

    @TySoltaur You can literally fit every single NES game on 1 CD, every SNES game would also almost fit on 1 CD. There were plenty of PS games that were 3-4 CDs each.

    I love the idea of this, but I’ve already purchased PlayStation classics on my PSN Account, and would love a current gen device to play THOSE on instead of having to rebuy them again on PS4 or a whole new device. Is there internet connectivity? A digital store front? PSN Account connectivity? Or is it just another way to spend $100 to play FFVII in a semi nostalgic way?

    JadenX said:

    My biggest childhood had returned, I’m really forward to buy this mini console, so cute. It gives me very nostalgic ever since it was my first console. One thing is, Will it include every other games like Einhänder since Final Fantasy VII is getting a preloaded game and it’s from SqaureSoft. The Lost World Jurassic Park for PS1 and original Spyro games. I wanna know please so it can be worth it to buy it!!

    TheGameGent said:

    Davewrench89 said:

    September 24th, 6:03 pm

    Only 20 games and no power adapter? I see trying to get in on the band wagon with everyone else and put out a mini digital version of a classic console. But common no way to power it straight out of the box? I get it everyone must have an old charging block from and old phone or something else laying in a drawer somewhere but that it’s just stupid. How many people do you think will know what kind of ac adapter to get. I’ve always loves Sony all of your products not just video game systems. But only 20 games? Really? Come on Sony!!!!! And for $100 Usd that is just a slap to the face for most of your customers including me. I have two Ps 1 and a ps2 and a ps3 and a ps4………… I’d say I’ve been a loyal customer. Why not instead of jumping on the money train too bank town you be loyal to the customer and be different from the other competitors, In a good way, not negative like no ac adapter negative and include an ac adapter and include more games or a way to add more games to it via Ps Store or Rom downloads. Miss good old companys that thought about what they were doing and not how to squeeze more money out of their customers.

Is there no CD tray? And why are the controllers without the analog sticks? Doesn’t seem like a good investment.

    jlkaratekid said:

    September 18th, 11:18 pm

    the PlayStation one controllers never had analog stick they were introduced with the ps2 controller

    Puptsik said:

    September 18th, 11:22 pm

    The DualAnalog was there at first, then the DualShock (I had both on my PS1). A few years later they introduced the PS2 with the DualShock2 controller. So, yea, the PS1 had analogue sticks, and they rocked in Gran Turismo 1 and 2 =)

    DeathAlleyDriver said:

    September 18th, 11:27 pm

    Yep, the PS1 DID have analog controllers. They just didn’t have them at launch. Ape Escape was the first PS1 game to require their use.

    The_Hobinski said:

    September 18th, 11:31 pm

    The dual analog controllers didn’t debut until roughly 2 years after the console launched. I find the original controllers being part of it rather fitting.

    demann973 said:

    September 19th, 12:27 am

    Take it back further fellas. This isn’t the ps1. This is THE PlayStation. It came before the ps1. It didn’t have the sticks. Those are replicas of what the PlayStation came out with. I’ve bought them all: PlayStation, ps1, ps2, PS3, PS4, and PS4 pro.

    CommanderMONG said:

    September 19th, 12:54 am

    As demann973 the PsOne had dual analogue, heck, it even had dual shock, however these classic controllers were for The Playstation. And as it is called the PlayStation Classic, it suits not having the analogue sticks.

    From memory, it was actually Bushido Blade and Tobal 2 that first used the sticks.

    Grawbad said:

    September 19th, 1:14 am

    @jlkaratekid Actually the dualshock controller came out just before Gran Turismo came out on the PS1.
    I remember reading about the game and the new controllers in a magazine and I picked up the controller and nothing I had used the sticks yet. Then Gran Turismo came out and it was all crazy from there.
    I remember playing Medal of Honor or something as my first shooter to take advantage of the sticks soon after.
    Changed everything.

    Spider-ManFRK486 said:

    September 19th, 2:19 am

    Initially, PS controllers didn’t come with analog sticks. However, they introduced the controller with analog sticks with the release of Ape Escape, which utilized both sticks. It was a bizarre experience at first because being able to move the camera was unheard of up until that point.

    CommandingTiger said:

    September 19th, 2:55 am

    Why no wireless controllers. Why not a dualshock with dual analogue?
    Most importantly, why no retro compatibility with the PS4?
    Sure, I guess it can’t play PS3 games because it’s very complex.
    But it should run PS1 and PS2 games easily from the disc .
    Also. Where is Final Fantasy VIII?

    zyphe84 said:

    September 19th, 5:21 am

    “the PlayStation one controllers never had analog stick they were introduced with the ps2 controller”

    WRONG

    xx_Omn1Slash_xx said:

    September 19th, 5:49 am

    This is inaccurate. The PS1 DID have Analog On DualShock1 controllers that were released around 97-98ish. They were actually playable and used on many PS1 titles . PS2 introduced Dual Shock 2.

    OmarMcCaws said:

    September 19th, 6:48 am

    On the contrary later controlers did have analog sticks, i have the old ps1 as proof

    MetalGearOpz87 said:

    September 19th, 7:54 am

    The original Playstation had DualShock controllers. They were added some years later after the console’s release. My guess for not having them there is for budget purposes.

    R0GU3_N1NJ422 said:

    September 19th, 8:20 am

    Actually the analog stick first appeared on special versions of the original playstation controller. As of the ps2, they became standard for all controllers

    drd7of14 said:

    September 19th, 8:52 am

    How could it have a CD tray at that size? What, are they gonna release Mini-sized Discs?

    TaKeNAlpha said:

    September 19th, 9:40 am

    The original PlayStation controller didn’t have analog sticks, they didn’t make the DualShock until November of 97

It looks nice. However, I’d much rather play all my PS One classics that I bought on PS3 on my PS4.

    itsbigmak93 said:

    September 18th, 11:31 pm

    How do you manage that? I can never find PS1 titles on PS4. And I know that I have PS1 titles on my PS3.

    kratosman1162 said:

    September 19th, 12:07 am

    itsbigmak93: Pretty sure he meant the ability to play them on his ps4. As in, I have Silent Hill purchased on my ps3 as a ps1 classic but it would be nice to play it on my ps4 too instead of having to switch entire consoles to do so, it kinda defeats the purpose of being an all in one entertainment machine if you still need other machines to do the same task lol

    All models of the PS2 and PS3 include Playstation/PS1 hardware inside the console. This allowed the PS2 and PS3 to play PS1 and Playstation games without any form of emulation being required.

    Early versions of the PS3 also had all of the necessary PS2 hardware inside it to allow it to also play PS2 games without any emulation being required. Eventually later models removed some of the PS2 hardware necessitating some degree of emulation which caused software compatibility issues with various PS2 games and eventually all of the PS2 hardware was removed from PS3 consoles (the claim by Sony at the time was that it was too expensive to keep manufacturing the PS2 hardware) making it impossible to play PS2 games on the last couple models of the PS3 without full emulation of the PS2 console and PS2 emulation was pretty bad back then.

    The PS4 I believe has neither Playstation/PS1, Playstation 2 nor Playstation 3 hardware inside it which means emulation would be needed to enable any kind of backwards compatibility. This is almost certainly why the PS1 games on your PS3 account aren’t accessible on your PS4.

    @Nicholas_Steel PS3, Vita, and and PSP used emulation for the PlayStation games. They don’t have PlayStation components in them. The PS4 could easily play those classics.

    @Nicholas_Steel
    Not quite. The reason PS2/3 could play PlayStation games from disk was because PlayStation games werent encrypted. The encryption came later with PS2 games which is why only first generation PS3’s could play them (with a patch) because they found it too costly to add backwards compatibility to all the consoles. You can actually pop certain PlayStation disks into a computer and depending on the software some are playable

My favorite moment was when I didn’t have to worry about the console coming with a power source. For $99 you guys can include the needed power cable…

    CPS_IV said:

    September 19th, 12:10 am

    It’s USB powered & comes with a USB cable. If you want the Power Adapter (which is what plugs into a wall outlet) you’ll have to buy that separate.

    homer02 said:

    September 19th, 12:12 am

    Ac cable is not included because you use the USB cable to power it, not the ac cable… You will be able to turn it on, don’t worry lol

    demann973 said:

    September 19th, 12:29 am

    How many of you athat are even the slightest bit interested can tell me you do not have a usb power block anywhere around you. I have them built in my surge protector.

    Tenks01 said:

    September 19th, 11:37 am

    Directly from the Playstation site:

    * A compatible USB AC adaptor (not included) is required to use this console. Use an AC adaptor that supports 5 V, 1.0 A USB (Type A) output

    So no, it probably won’t power on through USB :(

    It doesn’t come with an adapter glug like those that come with an iphone. It is still powered by USB, just plug it directly into a surge protector that has USB ports or any other USB to AC adapter.

    DudeDam said:

    The USB is the power source, just plug it into any active USB port.

    The_Hobinski said:

    September 18th, 11:35 pm

    Looking at the specs for it (5V at 1A) that is the power block that an apple/android phone’s usb plugs into to charge. Or plugging into a nearby PC or other gaming console that is on.

    joparoxR3 said:

    September 19th, 12:12 am

    Most TVs come with a USB slot. It “may” be able to supply enough power for that mini console.

SuperTiso said:

September 18th, 11:18 pm

Let’s get this out the way now:

PROS

– Small design
– Cool titles

CONS

– No A/C included yet you have the USB cord needed for it? Why? Just add the A/C.
– No DualShock? Come on bruh…
– $100 feels too much especially when there isn’t an included A/C.

    DudeDam said:

    September 18th, 11:37 pm

    The original PS1 didn’t have DUALSHOCK (it didn’t exist until PS2) and the USB is the power source.

    Air0087 said:

    September 18th, 11:51 pm

    DudeDam…stop lying. PS1 had DualShock controllers (fun fact: PS2’s controllers were called DualShock2).

    RageousX said:

    September 18th, 11:55 pm

    The USB cable *is* the AC adapter. It’ll power off of any USB port and doesn’t need a wall adapter.

    leeryalltyler said:

    September 18th, 11:57 pm

    PS1 had dual shock controllers @DudeDam.

    Splodem said:

    September 19th, 12:33 am

    No, it didn’t originally have dual shocks. They didn’t exist until a couple years later. I bought one when it came out. When it was called the PlayStation, not the PlayStation 1. These were the controllers that came standard if you bought the original PlayStation.

    neontiger77 said:

    September 19th, 3:05 am

    @Air0087 Dudedam is right, The ORIGINAL playstation did not have dualshock controllers; it was not until later that Dualshock controllers were made for the PS1.

    Parasyte384080 said:

    September 19th, 3:16 am

    The Original Dual Shock WAS for PlayStation and came out a few years later. I remember because there was a lot of praise for the way that MGS used the dual shock. Shortly before that, they had released analog controllers without the vibration feedback. The original classic PlayStation just had the digital controllers.

    ibe6yoube9 said:

    September 19th, 3:25 am

    He specifically said it didn’t come out until the PS2, which isn’t true.

    Some of you are trying to say there were two different Playstations, the original PlayStation (PSX) and the PlayStation One (PSone; the smaller, round version) and the dual shock came out with the One. This isn’t true. The original dual shock came before the PS1.

    killated10 said:

    September 19th, 5:46 am

    A usb is fine for use, if they used an real power pack with a plug they would probably need to make the console bigger.
    Pretty much everyone has a usb plug sitting around or just borrow the one from your phone !
    It’s really not a big deal

    killated10 said:

    September 19th, 5:55 am

    Just use a usb plug, it will work perfectly fine
    You get them with most phones or tablets etc
    It’s playstation classic eg… none of the games require DualShock or can utilise it so it would be a waste

str8upcronic said:

September 18th, 11:19 pm

I bought my first PlayStation the day it came out in the US. I must’ve played Ridge Racer until the next day. What an amazing console!

Hakumen__ said:

September 18th, 11:19 pm

No thanks, I already have a PS1 mini: it’s called the PS TV (Bita TV aun Japan).

From the looks of it, the PS TV is even smaller than the aforementioned PS Classic, and not only it can play the PS1 classics from the PSN that I’ve been buying since the PS3’s days, but also PSP classics, PS Vita games and can also be used to remote play PS4 games when away from home.

    GmrLeon said:

    Indeed, a great little system, even if a few PS1 Classics weren’t allowed to play on it. Supports multiplayer players as well, and with dual analog support that looks to be missing from this Classic.

    vagrant1313 said:

    September 20th, 9:14 am

    It’s powered thru USB, it just doesn’t come with the USB to AC adapter. You can use one of those little iphone wall plugs or any number of usb/ac adapters out there. Hell just plug it directly into a surge protector since most of the newer once have usb outlets.

DeltaBladeX said:

September 18th, 11:25 pm

Honestly, I’ll skip this. Maybe if it had PSN support for PS1 Classics and offered a few exclusive titles unavailable on PSN, like Ape Escape, I’d be all over it, but with just pre loaded games I can play on my PS3 or PSTV already, I’ll give it a miss.

MrMortality said:

For $ bucks they could have at least doubled the amount of games on it, easily!

    nutntubear said:

    I don’t think those will happen with THIS one. This’ll be more focused on non-DualShock titles, probably. MGS is best played with analog and vibration support.

    Those two are definitely PSX classics, though!

    TAEHUSTLA_1st_up said:

    They are re-releasing RE2 on the PS4 a two months later with updated graphics for $60, so it won’t happen for that reason as well.

Here’s a better idea PlayStation…Rerelease the PlayStation TV with the following changes:

-Streaming apps support such as Netflix/Hulu/Amazon/PlayStation Vue/Crunchy Roll/etc.
-Included DualShock 4 w/ charging cable.
-SD card support instead of proprietary memory cards (i.e. Vita memory cards).
-Retain PlayStation Store access & support for PlayStation Classics, as well as some select Vita titles.
-Keep PS4 Remote Play support, as an added value for those that already have a PS4 & want to use it on the go.

    CHICAGO-lollie said:

    September 18th, 11:51 pm

    PS Vita with a dock that delivers HDMI-Out and DS4 support.

    Sony’s already done this before, too: PSPgo had the Cradle, video-out and DS3 support (via USB). It’s so weird that these features didn’t carry over to the Vita.

IceSerpent said:

Teflon02 said:

September 18th, 11:49 pm

I’m assuming easily moddable too which is the only reason I’ll get. I’m just curious as to what this console has in it compared to the SNES mini that I have. I put a bunch of SNES titles and GBA titles and have alot more room left. If the PS One Mini doesn’t have alot of extra room, that’s a pass. I love it for the simple fact that it really brings things back and the controls etc. But like the SNES mini, it isn’t important nor do they matter when emulators can play up to N64, PS games on basically anything. So these are bought more out of nostalgia. I only bought the snes mini recently because I had money to spare and it was at EB Games when I got to the store browsing. I’m assuming it’ll be released alot better than nintendo’s mini’s. If so that’s probably my only chance of getting it lol

    DeltaBladeX said:

    September 19th, 1:15 am

    Probably less spare room compared to the Nintendo retro systems for one reasons, game size. Game cartridges were tiny in comparison to CD storage (several megabytes for carts compared to up to 700MB for a CD), so with more than 20 discs (since at least one game is multiple discs) stored on this, the total storage space will be more, but also more will be used.

Stick to ps now or make ps4 backwards compatible…quit being like the rest of the gaming companies just for nostalgia….if it was a ps1 w×1ith the ability to play old discs on top of playing preloaded games, then this woulda been a hit… not shelling out 100+ dollars for a system that doesnt have an ac adaptor and games that are already playable on the psn through a ps3 or ps4

    They seem to be banking on making more money off the latter behavior than by enabling & permitting the former, so…We’re kind of stuck until Sony starts listening to any of their customers.

I wonder if the $6-$10 PSOne Classic versions of any of the included titles will remain on the PlayStation Store after this comes out, or if their continued availability will be dependent on some executive’s coin flip.

Glad these titles are being made available for modern consumers on currently-manufactured hardware, but I’d take the existing digital titles and physical discs being finally made playable on PS4 (and beyond) over having to take up yet another HDMI port with this box.

    DeltaBladeX said:

    September 19th, 1:19 am

    As someone who still owns a PS3 and PSP, I really hope they don’t remove those games from the store. I still buy the occasional games for both systems, even if PS4 is my current priority.
