    Is there any original PSX games which won't be able to get over their shitty graphics with pure gameplay though

    Well, that suddenly explains why there is no PS1 compatibility on the PS4.

    Pretty good price considering you get 2 controllers with it. Those early 3D games have aged badly though. Unless they've done something to make them run or look better I can't really see the point.

    I like the idea of it. Bit of a shame the controllers are the original and not the dual shocks though. Don't know if I'd buy one though. I have a psp and a vita that play ps games great.

    Still holding out for a dreamcast or saturn one though.

    And again no power cable included.

    I suppose for those without a PSP or Vita this might be an option, but I prefer to play these games on a smaller screen. They're ugly enough on an emulator on my PC screen, can't imagine what they'll look like on a 50"+ panel and I also don't see Sony enhancing the graphics either. They'll be straight ports from PSN.

    Also dozens of other sites have this covered. Except Eurogamer. What's the point even of the front page these days.

    Does no dual shocks mean they're unlikely to have Gran Turismo on it, do you think? (More likely missing because of all the licensed music and cars). No chance of Ape Escape either.

    Get Speed Freaks and Legend of Dragoon on there though.

    If they did a 20 PS1 games collection for the PS4, I could atually be interested.

    As it is, I actively resent this thing.

    Is it bad that, outside of the £90 price point, my main reason for not wanting one is the PS1 looked like garbage and the thought of having one under my tv again is not a nice thought.

    Yep. Why do I want another piece of plastic under the TV and wired controllers that donít reach my sofa. Stick them on a disk.

    But you canít really blame them for following the market.

    Really the only 2 games I'd have any interest in would be Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania, and I can play both on the Vita. Most PS1 games look like ass these days, whereas 16-bit is considered retro.

    I'm just nowhere near as excited for this as I was for the mini SNES. I think it's partly because PS1 games never stopped being accessible -- I have most of the ones I'd want already installed on my Vita, and my PS3 will play virtually any PS1 disc you could chuck in it.

    I'd actually be more interested in a PS2 version.

    Problem with this is (aside from no dualshocks- wtf), Playstation files are relatively big, so if you wanted to add more, you're really going to be limited to what extras you put on there, will be a hard job to narrow down. Find it strange they haven't named the lineup but mention games I've never heard of like Jumping Flash or Wild Arms. Surely you let people know what they would be buying? As well as that, it'll look rough as fuck on a modern tv.

    I think I'll pass on this. Was an N64 kid and eventually PS2 so I've no heavy nostalgia for the PS1 apart from playing pirated Japanese Tekken 3, MGS and Ace Combat at my best mates house. I'd buy the shit out of a PS2 mini though, such a great looking console.

    All these Mini consoles run on ARM, so don't expect any platform that hasn't already been emulated to at least a decent degree.

    As others have said. My PSP has all these games on it (legally as well, all bought from the store) so unlike the Nintendo stuff I am not excited about getting to play the retro stuff.

    My favourite console of all time, although not one that has aged the best.

    Owned and completed (or played extensively) 4 of the 5 games announced so far (Jumping Flash being the exception and a game I'm not really familiar with). I think FF7, Ridge Racer Type 4 and Tekken 3 are excellent choices.

    Curious to find out about the other 15 before making a decision.

    Nope, only 4 announced so far. FF7, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms.

    My nostalgia for Playstation isn't high enough to want this.

    While I don't have a PS1 anymore, I do still have a boxed copy day-one release of FFVII.

    Not sure where my interest is on this one, I love the SNES mini, and do play it often, I don't think PS1 games have aged as well.

    If they included the Formula 1 and Gran Turismo games this thing may have a point but I can't see it happening as they're not on the store either, and like mentioned already there's a ton of licensing issues to get around.

    Actually I tried both via emulator and they really didn't age well. Them memories though... but best to leave them in the past.

    The only PS games worth playing are 2D ones and MGS1, and I got those already on my Vita from the store.

    Box has an 18 PEGI.

    The only 18 rated PEGI game according to the database is Syphon Filter 2.
