Granted I never had an original PlayStation, the bulk of games I am thinking of or would want are licensed things like WWF, superhero stuff or Tony Hawk. Guessing it will probably be Crash Bandicoot and some of hat other fare but think Xbox has the right response in the article.

The only PSX games I'd like to replay would be Twisted Metal 2, the original Warhawk, and Tekken 3 (but only if it includes the Tekken Force mini-game).

I'll wait for the final game list, it I'll likely skip this one. Pretty much every playstation game I really like I own in some digital form.

These things have a neat novelty factor and look cool, but I still can't believe people buy them at the prices they're sold for - sometimes even a lot more.

At $100 I’ll have to wait for a final game list as a decider. I thought I’d play my NES and SNES classics way more than I do.

I pre ordered one on Amazon. I can always cancel it if I don't like the list of games. I'll play Tekken 3 and Ridge Racer 4 on it.
 
I was going to make a small list of games that'd make me interested, but I legit can't think of a whole lot, especially any to justify buying this. I mean MGS, the Twisted Metals, Symphony of the Night, Parasite Eve, Vagrant Story, and the Syphon Filters, but that's it. Those are all ones I'd spring for remastered anyway (not that it'd happen, but Parasite Eve HD would be neat), not on this.

Bet it's got Bloody Roar 2 though.

Everyone seems to be going nuts for final fantasy 7. Which is available on every platform besides Xbox anyways.

Yeah this is nuts to me and people are weird. I've had that game on my Vita for ages.

I don't think it is on Switch quite yet, but it will be soon. But yeah, I find it hard to get excited about games that have been ported to basically every platform already. You can just get it on PS4 if you want.

Full list of games. Decent stuff though some sequels are frustratingly omitted (Twisted Metal instead of TM2, Resident Evil as opposed to RE2 etc.). I'm happy for Rayman and Wild Arms. Rainbow Six seems random as hell.

It's highly unlikely I get one of these u less it's like the NES and SNES classics where you can easily add games. But props for having Intelligent Qube. I loved that fucking game.

Would have been nice to get a suikoden or some other ungodly overpriced RPG. Likely a pass for me.

I know the rights issues, but it is crazy that Crash Bandicoot, originally touted as the Playstation "mascot", isn't on this thing. I think it's a really nice list of games but I wouldn't buy it because I have most of them anyway.

Ooooh, yeah that game was awesome. I had the demo version of it that came with my original PS in '97. I don't think I've played the full version. That and Ehrgeiz are two games who I fell in love with from just the demo but never got around to playing the actual titles.

People who don't know are going to be in for a huge shock when they load up Persona 1. Its such a drastically different game than what the series is now.

It also isn't good. They should have put Eternal Punishment on there instead.

Overall, the lineup looks really lackluster to me. No Crash Bandicoot. No Suikoden. No Final Fantasy Tactics. No Symphony of the Night. No Gran Turismo. No Dino Crisis. No Parasite Eve. No Silent Hill. No Parappa the Rapper. No Xenogears. No Chrono Cross. No Driver. No Legend of Dragoon. No Soul Edge. No Street Fighter Alpha 3. No Tomb Raider. No Spyro. No Mega Man Legends.

I'll pass.

It's next to impossible just to clear the Driver tutorial, so I can see why it was left out.

To Epic:
Rainbow Six Siege is a huuuuuuge deal in terms of online games, somit makes sense to include the one that started it. I'll also second your love of Ehrgeiz. I played the full game (both console and arcade) and holy shit do I wish it was more well known.

Overall, I'm just going to echo the "nah, pass" sentiment. The few games I'm interested in (Tekken 3, Syphon Filter, Twisted Metal) aren't enough to get me to drop money on it. Not when I can just re-up my PSNow account and get access to many of them anyway.

There are PAL emulated games on the console. Why?

Wal-mart's across the country are sitting on dozens of "arcade one" machines in each store. 4 old old games on a mini cabinet for 300 dollars!

You’re not wrong, but if they ever make a Golden Tee one, I’m buying it immediately.
