Sony Announces The PlayStation Classic

Sony has just announced they will be releasing a classic edition of the original PlayStation. It will come with 20 games, 2 controllers and be available on the 3rd December for $100, €100, AUD$150. I hope they give it Bluetooth and make it compatible with the dualshock 4 so i don't have to buy the inevitable 8bitdo wireless controller.

It's just an emulation console like The NES and SNES classics to the Neo Geo X Gold.

Lordy, everyone's cashing in on the nostalgia. Thankfully I wasn't born yet when the Playstation release, so there's no nostalgia to compel me to buy one.

Does it use actual discs? :o 

 

Edit - nevermind watched the video.. Open button is to change "virtual disk". I'll save the $100 and just use an emulator then, lol.

I know that my friends won't care. they've still got their original PS1, though 1 needs a new power cord.

Excellent, so we can all relive the first generation 3D goodness once again. /S

 

Seriously though, PS1, Saturn & N64 are all really bad periods in gaming graphics wise and engine wise. Graphics were blocky, textures were ugly but most importantly no one had figured out how to do 3D cameras properly yet.

 

Classic 16 bit works so well because it was the apex of 2D, all classic 32 bit will achieve is showing everyone how bad games were during the 2D/3D transition period.

 

I'm guessing they'll include Crash Bandicoot with this, I feel it kind of needs a Tomb Raider and Resident Evil game too. THPS2 would be amazing but also impossible. Driver would also be cool. Cool Boarders.

 

Let's hear some suggestions on which games you'd like to see.

Main Rig:-

Ryzen 7 3800X | Asus ROG Strix X570-F Gaming | 16GB Team Group Dark Pro 3600Mhz | Corsair MP600 1TB PCIe Gen 4 | Sapphire 5700 XT Pulse | Corsair H115i Platinum | WD Black 1TB | WD Green 4TB | EVGA SuperNOVA G3 650W | Asus TUF GT501 | Samsung C27HG70 1440p 144hz HDR FreeSync 2 | Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS |

 

Server:-

Intel NUC running Server 2019 + Synology DSM218+ with 2 x 4TB Toshiba NAS Ready HDDs (RAID0)

And still most of my favorite games are from that generation :). I still play most of them regularly using ePSXe, though tbh the ability to speed the games up has made me unable to play them on my PS2, too frustratingly slow lol.

so i take it you have not played 

  • Spyro 1/2/3
  • Gran Turismo /2
  • Castlevania Symphony of the night 
  • Driver 2
  • The Final fantasy everyone likes 
  • Silent hill 
  • Tekken 2/3 
  • Street Fighter Alpha 3

etc...

yes the games look low poly and in most cases are , but they dont always look bad or are bad games because "blocky graphics" 
heck, Homeworld (cataclysm) , a year 199 (2000) Space RTS is still one of the best games in that genere w/ an amazing story to date and it looks like THIS

Wish they just reuse the regular PS1 case and make a model that accepts PS1 disks and peripherals and then upscale all the graphics to 2k

Yeah, I actually kind of agree with you. PS1 had some amazing games for sure, it's not the PlayStation that is at fault, it's just the graphics from the generation aged horribly.

 

I can see nostalgia for those of us old enough to have played them at the time but I don't it having the mass appeal of classic 16 bit. Could you imagine what today's teenagers would make of 32 bit graphics and cameras?

I've got used to wireless controllers, and not tripping people up as they pass is always good.

Now feed that analogue 480i signal into a digital converter and send it out to a 43" 1080p screen and tell me it still looks as good.

 

Just to be clear, I'm not saying PS1 games are bad, far from it. Some of my all time favourite games came out on PS1.

 

I'm saying 32 bit is a bad period for gaming. The games haven't aged gracefully at all.

Sorry my mistake, obviously the best Final Fantasy game was Legend of Dragoon.

The correct answer is 3 for the Americans, but is known as 6 in Japan for the SNES and PS1!

Yeah. HD remakes/recodes would be nice. Anything that fixes the camera. Releasing as is, is poor form IMO.

you know that, starting on the PS3, you could set the scaling for ps1 games?

expect that sorta thing on the PS1C, you know whats worse than 480i?  256x224p aka Composite (nes , snes , n64 AND ps1)

When you can measure Final Fantasy numbers is both metric and imperial xD.

 

Honestly though I've played a hell of a lot more of 7 than I have of 6, I did play 7 before 6 though but I just like the materia system better. I think I may have played more of 8 than 6 but it would be close on that one. 6-9 I enjoyed equally but I play more of 7 and 9 than any of the others.

 

Still gameplay wise LoD takes the win for me, easily. The combo system was just so fun.

 

Edit:

FYI it was also 6 for everyone else too, or at least PAL regions like me.
