Default PlayStation Classic

Is anyone getting the PS Classic, it's released today. I think it's cool just like the nes and snes classic, but I'm having doubts on this one after reading the bad reviews. Thanks !

I preordered one thinking I might flip it. I only kinda like the PlayStation, much less so than the other classic systems. Looks like this one might not be going up in price.

Dont think they will be flippable. I do however think Sony played themselves on this.....No power cord? 3/4 Main games....about 10 decent titles and 5-6 awful ones ?!?!

Im keeping mine to use and have fun with....but Sony needed to lock in tomb raider, spyro, crash etc. Titles that defined the generation. Wild Arms, Ridge Racer etc....were all niche titles

Yea that too. There are so many better games that should have replaced those awful games.

I think Red Dead 2 will greatly temper sales on this PS Classic though.

Dont think this will have much affect, your talking 2 different player pools (current v nostalgia) and roughly maybe a 20% overlap. I love RDR2 (what little I get to play games anymore ) but I grabbed this. I have found the classics fun on those 3-4 days a year you get together with your friends and reminisce about the grade school days of playing Techmo and Baseball Stars lol.

Ended up getting it after all. Out the door, it was about $89 (minus discount)

Ah, memories

Mine arrived in 1 day from Amazon. I balled out to some Intellegent Cube and RR4...which was a very underrated racing game on the Ps1.
