Beware the PS1 Classic

Recommended Posts

I anticipate that this thing is going to be a pretty popular idea so I figured I'd post a warning. There are three major issues with the mini

1. Many of the games you're excited about playing are not going to be on there because of rights issues. Crash, Spyro, etc. 

2. The PS1 was built around having joysticks, the classic removes the sticks.

3. You still have to buy your own AC adapter

 

Chances are if you're interested in this, you'd be better off just buying the games in the playstation store.

If you have a ps3 this is irrelevant but the ps1 had some great games RE 1-3 and Metal Gear Solid come to mind.  Seems like a money grab.

The PS3 plays all PS1 disks and PS Store has tons available cheap for download as OP mentioned.

Would recommend very highly the Resident Evil Remake on the PS3 leading up to RE 2 Remake.  Amazing game and legit creepy.

Get a retropie setup with some wireless ps4 controllers for the fuging win.

Retropie still has issues with a lot of n64 and ps1 games though.    It's not "quite" there, but close I believe.

Any games older than those systems though it's a nobrainer.    Pretty easy too.

you can power  your PS classic via USB just like the nintendo classic, Sony just doesnt provide the plug.

Y'all see the xbox response?  It's pretty funny.

I think the retro consoles are kind of silly.  I mean, I get the purpose for the old NES/SNES cartridge based games.  It's a lot cheaper to buy one of those classic systems instead of trying to get it to work on a newer Nintendo console.

But I agree with xbox on this one, why buy something new when it's built into the system.

I haven't played a lot of those yet to find out.

I'd probably rather just buy an old ps1. I loved my old ps1

Tekken 2, Crash Bandicoot, Croc, Dragonball GT Final Bout, Tenchu, Abe's Odyssey, Twisted Metal.  Hell even though Pizza Hut sample game CD's were fun as hell.

I’m like 99% sure when I got my ps1 originally the controllers were D-Pads. The “dual shock” was something that came out later

What?  No it wasn't.  There weren't even that many games that even utilized the original dualshock controller... Ape Escape is literally like the only one I can think of right off the top of my head.  Others just added gimmicky features like Metal Gear Solid's Psycho Mantis using his "telekinesis" to move your controller by making it rumble.  Actually, MGS might be the ONLY other game that utilized the dualshock outside of Ape Escape lmao.  Not to mention dualshock controllers didn't even come out until towards the end of the PS1's life cycle.  In it's original state it was little more than a gimmick in response to the N64's analog stick and rumble pack.

Lol people boycotting it based on the lack of a dualshock controller is laughable.  NOT having a dualshock controller would be more true to the real original PS1 experience.  I hardly even knew anyone that had one of those controllers back during the console's original run.  I sure didn't and never had a single problem.
