Or release games for $4.99 each for the PS4 and enable disc based games for a one time fee of say for $10. Until that happens I will keep my Slim PS3 next to my Slim PS4.

Gross. Assuming you mean you put in your own disc and are charged $10 once to play it on your account. Let's not do that or make that something that's normal.

 

Remember $10 online pass for used games, yeah, that failed for good reason.

I meant a ONE TIME fee to activate the emulator for physical PS1 games per console not per game.

That makes more sense, but I also read it as every game initially. 

 

I'd personally not be into that because I sold a large bulk of PlayStation collection years ago. I'd rather be able to just buy games on the network like on PS3 and Vita, especially if I can just download the ones I already own. 

 

Personally I see Sony revamping PSNow more to compete with Games Pass on the Xbox. PSNow recently started letting you download the games opposed to streaming I believe and if they can get Playstation 1 and 2 games added to the service I'd absolutely subscribe.

After making horrible life decisions and selling off my NES and SNES collections to Funcoland back in the day, I'm at least happy I kept PS1 and on. Makes this disappointment with Sony not really even an issue lol.

Someone asked a while ago about the 20% off Target coupon. I just tried it and no dice, probably could have argued it since the exclusions only mention PS4 hardware but I really didn’t care enough to try.

Why can't we have the same system as the Xbox 1 when it comes to Xbox Classic or 360 games?

I put in my ps1/ps2 or ps3 game and play the game after a quick download.

Because Sony has zero incentive. The market balance has swung much too far this generation  :(

I think they should built a ps1 that looks like an ps4 pro and have everything a ps4 pro has but its ps1 and it can play blu-ray and 4k and 3D movies in it and apps like vudu and fandango now and others but only plays ps1 games in 4k,1080p,hd

I see the hacking scene is moving along rapidly with this. Can add games just using a USB flash drive and play them from there. Going to wait a bit more as it continues to evolve and then maybe finally buy one of these systems. I do have $20 in Best Buy reward certs waiting for me to use on this.

As others have said, none of that won't matter if the emulation problems still exists. If the PS1 games still play like shit because of the emulation then it's still only worth around $20 max.

This will be fixed as well. This is the same emulator hacked onto the SNES Classic, which is lesser hardware and runs the games better. Just wait for the hobbyists to improve its implementation.

Not sure if it'd end up at Big Lots, but $25 seems realistic. I'd give it less than a year, no one's buying them

Now comes with a $25 gift card at Best Buy and Gamestop. Likely more than that, but I happened to check out those two websites and saw it on both.

Nice, going to go price adjust this at BB.

Switch will never reach the dizzying heights of PS4 and to a much lesser extent, X1, so I'd consider that a flop by comparison. Until they're willing to get over this portability fad and are ready to sit at the table with the grownups, they will never retake the world by storm again. That said, we're getting ours for Christmas to ourselves because it's literally the last console we don't own and the GS deal made it worth it to us. If it had only been this paltry $25 GC deal though, we'd have balked.

It's $25 off at Target until January 1st online, or with a Cartwheel Coupon in stores.

Considering that the Xbox sells so terribly overseas, I'd say the Switch has a pretty easy path to better worldwide sales. I'm glad to be all but completely cut off from Sony's ecosystem at this point. Their priorities are jacked, and I don't want to deal with their bullshit anymore.

I wish. I miss the years when Big Lots still carried video games and anime.

As soon as I saw the weak games list, $100 price tag and that they were including the non-analog controllers I knew it would fail.

So two weeks after release and they are already discounting it?  Good job, Sony.

 

At this rate huge future discounts are almost guaranteed.

Not seeing the GC listed? Maybe they "fixed" that?

How about price matching in store for $75 and double dipping on cartwheel?
