Why Everyone is Angry about PlayStation Classic | Nostalgia Nerd

Well, ok, not EVERYONE is angry, but most are, and I think it's down to the principle of the matter more than anything else. So, Sony have recently launched their Playstation Classic Mini console, and it's not unfair to say that reception has been cold. That's not to say that it's a total pile of crap, and you can have a lot of fun with it. But looking through the firmware source code, it's clear there were games on Sony's agenda, which may have made it into the Classic, but didn't. These hidden Playstation classic games will feature in this video, along with the reasons why I think we can be annoyed with Sony over their latest console (and why we also shouldn't really give a crap).

  • What I really don’t understand is that you can buy a second hand PSTV for cheaper, hack it, and have a system that’s way more functional than the PS Classic. Sony already had a solution for perfectly emulating psx games so why didn’t they just stick it in a little box that looks like a PS1 and ship that instead of the opensource emu option that we got?

  • There's no nice way to emulate a 50hz game at 60hz. Game logic in consoles (and sometimes more) was often tied to refresh. Changing the refresh gets you a sped up game, and audio could get choppy. Worst case, the game even crashes. The best way is just to drive the display to 50hz, something that can be done with freesync and modern emulators that implement it.

  • I run all my emulation off my main gaming pc. Everything from Old arcade games to Wii U and even switch emulation. I added steam shortcuts which directly launch the emulator AND rom. Not only does this make a nice, pretty library in both standard view and big picture, but I can also launch these games via steam link on my tv, phone, etc. It'd be cool to own the original hardware, don't get me wrong, but this isn't the original hardware. It's a glorified raspberry pi in a fancy case. There is little difference, software wise, between what my games look like and what they look like on the playstation Mini. Plus, it is missing games. I personally prefer my solution to emulation over buying a mini console. Short of buying the consoles themselves, running emulation the way I have provides the best experience.

  • Most NEED to play PSX/PS1 Games aka games I would immediately sit down to play (add any missing): Intelligent Qube Einhander (still my favorite of the genre ever) Castlevania - Symphony of the Night (probably my most played ps1 game) Crash Bandicoot (whichever) Silent Hill Mega Man Legend 1/2 Mega Man X4/5/6 Less immediate but wanted none the less: Resident Evil 2 Twisted Metal 2 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater The top list is what I would consider CLASSICS: games that I could recommend to someone who hasn't played them and they would STILL enjoy them, even with the dated graphics. The bottom list has aged considerably.

  • For less money, you can buy a PSP and it can play PS1 games greatly. With an obvious bonus of being able to play PSP games region free. Sony had an emulator built in to the PSP and its bizarre why they didn't use that instead of this open source one they used.

  • sad truth: the companies we fell in love with years ago probably don't have the same staff they had back then. so, we can now understand that those once untouchable brands can now suck. therefore, we can safely ignore brand names and dig deeper and really take a look at which of today's companies actually care about gamers. most modern versions of these companies are only concerned with their bottom line and that won't change until we stop buying their modern garbage. which companies of today seem to really care about us and are currently making quality products?

  • Making a PS classic is like making a DiscMan classic. Could you imagine an MP3 player, shaped like a discman with 20 random albums from 1995 on it? Chances are you'd like 1 or 2, maybe even have a fondness for a few more, but mostly you'd have a bunch of music that you have very little interest in. The PS1 had very few "must have games" and a lot of games that would be a personal favorite. It would be hard to find an analog to Mario 64, or Zelda OoT on the PS1.

  • I already started having a strong opinion about Sony the day the shop refused to replace my GranTurismo 4 their in warranty replaced PS2 scratched (known issue, ended up chipping the PS2 never buying a single more game). Sony died to my eye when they had their security leak on the PlayStation Store. Issue that could have been fixed before being exploited. Then really poor customer service, and even poorer marketing. Historically Sony tried to make outstanding / different products that what would exists. Last decade they outsmarts all competition in making shittier products.

  • Thirty bucks for a midrange tinkering ARM and a pair of controllers wasn't that bad. the usb controllers feel pretty uncanny, it was made im guessing on sony's flagship assembly line (PS4 and vita parts) and doesn't feel the same oldschool weight, grade or quality. its "Airier" but ultimately feels sturdier in the hands, like a ps4 controller

  • Considering these are all mostly based around Raspberry Pi or similar SBCs, most of which don't have storage aside from an SD card slot, although I would think even if they used as Pi with a modified version of Raspbian designed to run the emulator, there should be room for saving game states.

  • PS Classic without any Crash game, any Spyro game, any Driver game, seriously..... among all the "less known games", couldn't they have included some neat things like Lucky Luke, Gunfighter, Kula World, Ridge Racers Type 4, Dave Mirra BMX however it's called? And really... Including an open-source emulator? If it's GPL'd, where's the source code? And can some GPL guy (not me) upgrade the firmware with a better version? Isn't this what GPL allows? No software lockdowns? How embarrassing... PCSXR is kinda cool, but this chipset just sucks... I've seen people beef up similar versions of the emulator to the extent that it acts near-100% consistent, but this is...
