:???: is this a joke? how about just making more psone games compatible on ps4 and ps3? like your competitor keeps adding backwards compatibility to xbox 360 games? or how about allowing me to change my damn username from a decade ago :lol:

Why bother when they have sold twice as many consoles?

 

They'll come out next gen and announce BC and crossplay for PS5 and probably turn PS Now into something more along the lines of game pass. Doubt they're ever giving the option to change names tho lol.

I was actually drawn in by the prospect of the pads for playing fighting games on other systems. Unfortunately they're missing the analog sticks, which I need to use sometimes for the L3/R3 buttons or for easy 360 motions. They also use a USB connection, the original shape surrounding it is just for looks. At the very least I hope the USB port sticks out enough that you can connect to other devices easily.
 

 

 

Here's the picture of what the USB connection for the pads on the PS Classic itself looks like:

thanks. ps3 compatibility would be nice since i have so many old games including platformers on psn for ps3.

MS does that because they ran out of exclusives. Sony doesn't have that issue, so no need. I agree itd be nice though.

I didn't even know this was coming. I have a PSIO on the way so I doubt I'd ever use this thing. I can't see this being another Nintendo classic situation. Are there really that many people with hardcore nostalgia for early 3D games?

This was a bit of a suprise. No one's ready which means this will be even more popular this x-mas season.

I don't see this being as popular as the NES Classic was. Higher price point and the game selection so far won't do anything for parents shopping for their kids. Your average soccer mom or football dad knows Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Pac Man, Kirby from their childhood and thought it would be cool to show their kids what they used to play. 

 

Crash and Spyro getting remasters really hurt this things potential selling power imo since those are the mascots people associate most with PS1.

HDMI resolution on 240p games should be fun, they're grainy as hell on my pi. Nice to see the design is accurate for how small the system is.

I wonder if they're gonna sell a dualshock controller separately from this.


Probably not as it comes with 2 controllers.

Includes two wired controllers, a virtual memory card and an HDMI cable.

Well I preordered it just in case. I do not have the fondness for the PlayStation but that’s mostly because I didn’t own one until after the PlayStation 3.

Gamestop is charging an extra $7.00 handling fee. Really!? I'm sure we'll need to buy controller extensions as well. Regardless I pre ordered through Best Buy.

“* 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”

That’s pretty shitty.

Does gamestop charge now or when it ships for this?

It uses any 5W USB charger, like the ones that come with iPhones, Kindles, Fire Tablets, Android phones, the SNES and NES classic, probably the Vita charger, etcetcetc.

Def not preordering. No full list of games and no idea of emulation quality. I'll pick it up for 50 in a year

It’s showing $7.25 for tax with free shipping for me, no handling fee. I also noticed they have the release date as 12/31/18.

*Edit* Once I preordered, on the confirmation page it showed 12/3/18 as the release date. It also said free 2 day shipping upgrade on preorders over $35 for elite members, although it didn’t give me that option when it was selecting shipping methods. I guess it will upgrade automatically to 2 day?

The inclusion of Jumping Flash, and it’s prominent placement as one of the five advertised titles, has me really worried about what the other 15 are that we don’t know about. Sony unfortunately does not own a lot of the PS1 games that most would consider for a curated 20 title PlayStation Classic, so hopefully the extra $20 over the Nintendo minis is going towards paying off publishers to include their games.
