Playstation Classic

Post by Mugsy » 19 Sep 2018, 17:11

I think I'll need to see the entire library first but Final Fantasy 7, Ridge Racer and Tekken 3 are good starts. No analog sticks on those controllers though.

99 Euro is currently $161 Australian. Doesn't seem worth it for some ancient shovelware.

Unless they put Bushido Blade on it. Then I would buy one. :)

AU$149.99 according to Kotaku:

https://www.kotaku.com.au/2018/09/sony- ... -december/

That's $7.50 per game which isn't too bad.

For me, they'll need to include games like Wipeout 2097, Twisted Metal, Silent Hill (probably a no go due to the rating), Crash Bandicoot, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil, Castlevania Symphony of the NIght, Gran Turismo, Abe's Oddysee, and Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 though. That's what I think of when I think PS1

JB's put up their preorder page already:

EB will be going live at 10am tomorrow apparently. I'm not fully sold on this just yet. Only three of the 5 titles announced so far I like and even then, I doubt I'll play FF7 all too much, leaving only Tekken 3 and Ridge Racer as the games I'd play. And it must have Tony Hawk 2. I'm not a skateboarding kind of guy but damn that was an awesome game. If it gets Symphony of the Night, that'll be interesting as that game supposedly goes for quite a bit.

My first thoughts were that it needed either Spyro or Crash and Grand Turismo.
The initial list seems a bit lacklustre

After a bit more thought, I'm thinking it's best to skip this. I have FF7 on my ps3, wipeout hd and tekken tag hd too. I will probably experience all the ps1 goodness I want on my ps3 already.

I read someone is trying to flog one off on eBay for $1000.00.

Why are people so stupid (and I mean the seller and the potential buyer)?

They're assuming it'll be a very limited run like the Nintendo ones and thus people will pay inflated prices again. The seller's getting ahead of themself more than anything.

I hadn't seen $1k but I did see a $600 listing on ebay yesterday. I sure hope Sony produces these in ample quantities to teach the scalpers another lesson.
