Good games, but certainly not the kind with mass market appeal.

Thanks for making the list. I really didn't want to watch the video!

That's a surprisingly decent list of games to catch a wide variety of the PS1 library. Certainly better than I expected, but I know some people will be disappointed when they listed like 50 RPGs they wanted and nothing else.

I agree, the list is decent. Super Puzzle Fighter 2 already sold me on it.

Another game I'm surprised they left out was Parappa the Rapper. That was groundbreaking for rhythm games, and was super fun to play in the day. A personal favourite (but probably not well known) game was Bust a Groove. That was a fun game.

Bust A Groove was awesome, and hard.

Sadly missing Die Hard Trilogy, which basically had the best Pre-GTA GTA mode (Die Hard 3) ever. Love lighting them pigeons on fire.

Not a horrible list, about a half-dozen I'd look forward to playing.

Likely half of which will not have aged well.

Was really hoping for Xenogears.

Suikoden 2 actually came out in North America. Star Fox 2 wasn't even released in Japan.

Just saying how significant I feel those games where to those systems.

Some of those games might be fun for the nostalgia kick, but I don't know whether there is enough there that would keep me coming back with all the newer games out there.
If someone bought it for me, I would definitely play it, but already owning a PS4 and a PC with combined more games than I can ever play, I feel once the novelty wore off it would be untouched.

That being said, it would be fun to play the bolded games again. I sunk waaaaaaaay too many hours into Tekken 3 back in the day!
Games from that era I would love to play again:
Tony Hawk's Pro Skater (1,2,3) (stupid music licences, Activision losing Tony Hawk's rights, etc. killing that dream)
Silent Hill
Ape Escape (only opting to include basic controller killed that possibility)
Driver (though now I would probably find it way too hard)

Other games have either remasters or newer versions (which when you strip away the nostalgia, the newer ones are way better) which means even if they were on this, I would have other options
Crash, Spyro and upcoming Medievil remasters
Colin McRae Rally (vs Dirt Rally)
Gran Turismo (vs GT Sport, just nostalgia for old tracks)
Wipeout 3, XL (vs Wipeout Omega, similar experience, different tracks)

Super disappointing. Im thinking of cancelling my pre-order.

Would have loved to see more of the PlayStation Exclusives like Medieval, Parappa the rapper, Blasto etc....

Well this would be why MediEvil wasn't included

I know it's probably licensing issue, but if any of the EA sports games are included (NHL94, FIFA, etc.) it will be great.

The game list is already out? They aren't included.

That's kind of the same thing I've found with the NES and SNES mini. Once the novelty of it wore off, it kind of just sits on my shelf. I'm more buying them as a collector thing. It's still fun to play once in awhile when you have a few buddies over for nostalgia purposes though.

Anybody actually buy one of these things? Apparently there are some major frame rate issues with a lot of the games.

Not surprising since the PS Classic just uses the open source PCSX Rearmed emulator on hardware that is not as powerful as a Raspberry Pi. Sony put so little effort into this it's embarassing

I'm absolutely shocked how many of you wanted Xenogears! I didn't think it was that popular. Best RPG soundtrack, tied with FF8, in my opinion. Bought the soundtracks to both when I was in Japan half a lifetime ago.

The frame rate issue is due to using PAL versions instead of NTSC. So they have to drop frames, as far as I know.

But agreed. I've put more effort into my Pi than Sony did to this. And I put very little effort in.
