Everyone remembers the PSone differently, and that’s perhaps the beauty of it. While the Nintendo 64 was defined by Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and the Xbox was defined by Halo: Combat Evolved and, well, Halo 2, Sony has always cast its net so wide that you rarely get the same answers twice. There are recurring names – Crash Bandicoot! Spyro the Dragon! Tomb Raider! Metal Gear Solid! Final Fantasy VII! – but so eclectic was the Japanese giant’s first console that it was never going to please absolutely everyone with its upcoming PlayStation Classic mini-console. Just take a look at Twitter right now, as social media inferno rages over… Brave Fencer Musashi?
For me the PlayStation was all about Dino Crisis and Theme Hospital; for others it’s Final Fantasy Tactics, Suikoden, and Chrono Cross. And I think this is the underlying point: the PlayStation Classic, with just 20 games available in its roster, was never going to please absolutely everyone. There are high-profile absentees, of that there’s no doubt – but Gran Turismo, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and WipEout were never going to make the grade due to licensing issues, and honestly I never expected Crash or Spyro given the existence of the PlayStation 4 remakes.
I think you’re left with a good selection of software that spans a variety of tastes and genres – in a way, it’s a microcosm of just how varied the PSone’s library was. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six and Grand Theft Auto may be curious inclusions for some, but they’re household names – and that they’re flanked by Japanese role-playing games like Final Fantasy VII, Revelations: Persona, and Wild Arms shows just how eclectic the console could be. There’s sadly no Silent Hill, but Resident Evil Director’s Cut was arguably the more iconic of the PSone’s survival horror titles, while Twisted Metal is the longest running first-party series in PlayStation history.
I think the platform holder’s done a good job of balancing first-party and third-party, and also mixing household names with unknown ones. Intelligent Qube is no Tekken 3 in terms of global appeal, but it’s one of those folk legends that’s still fondly remembered in 2018. Lara Croft, honestly, is probably the biggest absentee given just how prolific she was in the mid-to-late 90s, but maybe Square Enix is so invested in the “current” iteration of the character that it didn’t want to water down its marketing efforts by turning back time? At the very least we’re confident conversations were made.
The bottom line is that the PSone was a platform bursting with such riches that I could spend an entire month recapping the games not included on the PlayStation Classic: Whoppee-Camp’s legendary platformer Tomba (or Tombi, depending where you’re from) would have been a nice niche addition to the roster; Pandemonium, the jester-based polygonal adventure from Crystal Dynamics, lives long in the memory for some; Crash Team Racing, arguably the greatest non-Mario kart racer, is probably getting a remake; and there are about a billion JRPGs, some of which I can’t even pronounce, that you’ll read about on ResetEra this week.
The conversation surrounding the mini-console will no doubt be defined by its conspicuous absentees, but I genuinely don’t think any list of 20 could have universally satisfied. Perhaps there’s an argument that Sony should have doubled the selection of software, but that only bumps up the price and makes what is effectively a stocking filler a more expensive proposition. Between licensing headaches and a library so large and varied, I genuinely think the platform holder’s done a really good job. Not everyone, as social media showcases, will agree, though.

1) Sony appeal to mass market with licensing brands and music. A retro nightmare.
2) They were pretty cynical not putting games on the system so as not to 'eat sales of recent remakes / re-releases'.
The truth and nothing but the truth
For me, the PS1 was absolutely all about Gran Turismo and Final Fantasy VII. GT was the reason I got interested in the PlayStation, up to then, I'd been a Sega Genesis kid. I could easily see myself going back to play FFVII in a higher resolution on the mini console (or PS4), but not so much GT1; racing games have progressed far too much. I prefer to leave my good memories of GT1 as that.
I won't be buying it, but I don't think the lineup is terrible. It may seem kinda naked not having more "big" names like Gran Turismo and Tomb Raider, but I've always thought that even in the PS1 era, PlayStation's biggest strength was having lesser known games shine.
The lineup has some games that don't really come to mind when I think PlayStation (with a few I've never played), but still are solid enough games.
I forgot about final fantasy tactics and suikoden, plus castlevania sotn ps1 (not psp) version, man I think it will be great if sony just sell us ps1 games on ps4 with good anti-aliasing/filtering option. I already bought many ps1 games on ps3/vita, but I'll buy it again if sony put ps1 bc on ps4.
Poor lineup. I think I will cancel my pre order
It's a great list of games that covers a lot of bases.
It's less "bad" and more "meh".
Plus with Sony's history of issues emulating games even on PS3 (Spyro ran slow for instance) and PS2 games having hiccups on PS4...I was a wait and see guy anyway.
Plus the lack of analog sticks kills the chances of more popular games...
I think 30 games would have been fine. For what you're getting $100 is punching just a little above it's weight. For 25 games sure, but not 20.
I do broadly agree with the article but being that there are so many classic games to choose from and there are only 20 games on the console how did Mr Driller make the cut?
I also feel that there are a couple of other titles which are 'filler'.
honestly i think it's a pretty solid line up and i'm happy to spend the £90 asking price on it
besides i have never played Wild Arms and i heard it's a great JRPG so i'm really looking forward to that and FINALLY being able to play Metal Gear Solid again, for some reason playing my PS1 on my HD TV ghosts the image
@get2sammyb What's wrong with Brave Fencer Musashi?
Yeah agree it would of been hard to please everyone. The list doesn't do it for me would of needed at least 10 top hitting games for my taste to consider buying it as its quite expensive for something realistically i would only play for a couple of hours now and then. The other problem is Ps4 has Resident Evil remake which was free on Ps plus at some stage. Also I am a big FF7 fan but the best way to play it is the PS4 version with the 3x speed option.
I think it's a pretty good list overall, there are some notable omissions such as Tomb Raider and Crash Bandicoot and I'd have preferred Destruction Derby 2 but it's good to see the original Resident Evil available again
While I still think the mini releases is a stupid stunt, Sony could have doubled or tripled the number of games on their system without much added costs. It would've provided a much better value to their mini system than Nintendo's arguably better offer.
I think 20 games is a bit stingy. Should have made it at least 30.
I did think 'i bet people will moan whatever the line up would be' and I was right(again) Seems cool to me the games Crash 1 would of been cool tho and Tomb Raider 1 and GT etc etc(to many games to list so it would of been impossible to please everyone) but just including MGS1 was worth me pre-oredering it Or I guess they could of put say 40 games on it. Maybe for 'PS1 Classic 2' console then
hahahahahahahha ohhhhhh dear. I held off my pre-order as this list could have gone one of two ways and........ wow this went south really fast and has delivered a very strong "meh" line-up.
Where are the big playstation hits worth playing?
Castlevania Symphony of the Night
Wipeout 2097 (or 3)
Mega Man X (any of them)
Resident Evil 2
Tony Hawk Skateboarding
Why are we being given games such as:
The worst version of Rainbow 6 ever made?
one of the worst fighters on 32-bit - Toshinden
super puzzle fighter?? could have had street fighter alpha 3.
This is predominantly a list trying to think outside the box and give you experiences you never thought you'd pick, only to give you a selection of games you'll flick on for all of 5 minutes each and make you think "meh".
For shame Sony.
Console does a good job at showing the variety of games on the PS1, but I think they'll lose sales as people don't want to pay $100 for variety.
Rare put 30 games on a $30 disc.
NES Mini was 30 games that Nintendo was selling for $5 on VC, for $60
SNES Mini was 21 games for $80, but Starfox was pseudo new
A variety of games most people may only want 5 of, that they already own, for $100, may keep this off of eBay.
Sony may have been better off with 4 or 5 different Minis, JRPG, sports, fighting, action, platforming.
But yes, with one 20 game console you were always going to get more negative than positive reaction, just too many games. The only thing that matters to Sony is does it sell? I think it will, and if not well, that $100 price gives them a lot of room for sales and price cuts b/c this didn't cost them $100.
I'm torn. Game lineup is pretty meh, but I want the box on my shelf next to the NES and SNES Minis. I have a pre-order, remains to be seen if I keep it.
"but Gran Turismo, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, and WipEout were never going to make the grade due to licensing issues,"
Wait, I can understand Tony Hawk, and maybe WipEout, but why would Gran Turismo have licensing issues?
On the broader topic, while I do agree that the PS1 had a fair few popular, well-received franchises, I wouldn't say it was night and day compared to the N64. For example, you bring up Zelda OoT and Super Mario 64 as the only big titles on the console, but neglected to mention other big titles such as Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros, Goldeneye 007, Perfect Dark, Zelda: Majora's Mask, Pokemon Stadium, etc. All of which could arguably
While I agree that no list can please everyone (that pretty much goes without saying) I would still argue that the list we got left a lot to be desired. As I mentioned in the other article though, it seems Sony was going for novelty more than anything, with only three (from what I could see) crowd pleasers to sweeten the deal, so I guess this was somewhat inevitable.
I canceled my preorder, I much share @rjejr's statement about really wsnting a Squeenix box moreso than a PS1 mini. I'll just save $100 and hook my PS3 up to my PC monitor instead.
I been with PlayStation since day 1 in September 9 1995 in new york City.and before PlayStation i was a sega genesis fan.and wow im glad I chose ps1 I had a Salman before PlayStation 1.so I was a fan before that.my favorite games are syphon filter 1.crash bandicoot 2.metal gear.3.resident evil 2.4.parisite ever.5.medievil.word up son
@LN78 hey, yeah we're currently trialling downvotes on article comments which should give us some useful insight into the community mindset. We also added a minimum comment length, which was actually updated just a couple of minutes ago (with a different error message). This is to try and prevent people giving one or two word comments such as "First!" or "Why?" that we've been seeing.
I’m disappointed that they went with Twisted Metal and not the sequel. Loved TM2 in college.
There are a number of titles synonymous with the PS1 that aren't on there. Boggles my mind how there's no Crash. Tomb Raider, Wipeout, Medievil, Spyro, GT... They had the PS mascot characters equivalent to Mario for Nintendo.
Regardless of the reasoning for not including these titles, they're the whole point of owning a PS1 Classic.
I agree with the sentiment, but this still is quite disappointing to me. In my opinion, these mini consoles should consist of the games that made the console iconic in the first place. That some games will miss out due to licensing problems and/or to make sure that the line-up is varied enough, is to expected, but still. The NES and the SNES mini consoles succeeded here for the most part. It missed out on some licensed games (the Turtles games, DuckTales), some heavy hitters were absent (mostly Chrono Trigger), and sometimes they went with a different game in a series than I would’ve preferred (Castlevania II over III, Donkey Kong Country 1 over 2), but they mostly hit the mark.
In my opinion, the list for the PSone Classic, is borderline awful. I can accept that they went with Resident Evil: Director’s Cut over Resident Evil 2, and that they only picked one of the three mainline Final Fantasy games. I can also accept that it’s probably hard (?) to get the licensing rights to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 or 2. But the fact that all of the following games are missing, is baffling to me:
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Gran Turismo 2
PaRappa the Rapper
Final Fantasy Tactics
Street Fighter Alpha 3
Mega Man X4
Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
Crash Team Racing
Suikoden 1 or 2
Tomb Raider 1 or 2
Crash Bandicoot 1, 2 or 3
Spyro 1, 2 or 3
I kind of feel like this is the mini-console for no one (apart from collectors).
If you're a casual fan who doesn't own a modern console but wants to feed your late-90s nostalgia, you'll probably be disappointed that so many of the most iconic games (Spyro, Crash, Tomb Raider, Silent Hill, PaRappa, etc.) are missing.
If you're a big Playstation fan and have a PS4, it's an even tougher sell. Several of the biggest games on the roster are available on PS4, some upscaled or fully remastered to look decent on a modern tv. There would be some allure if this were some kind of 'definitive' ps1 collection, but it clearly is not. You're better off buying a used psp or ps3 and getting the classic games you want through psn. It would be a cheaper initial investment and give you access to a wider selection of games.
Good to see Abe on there. Abe always makes me smile.
@FullMetalWesker Gran Turismo had real world music just like Wipeout and there's having to renew deals with the car companies.
"No purple and no oh-range? This list comes off as strange.
No point in shaking my fist, I'll just cross this off my X-mas list."
(comment on the reveal video)
I wanted to comment on the full list today that it has finally come out, but I didn't see an apologetic Soapbox coming. I should have, though.
While the PS Mini would still be a nice novelty item to have under my Christmas tree, and as much as I'd love it to be my SNES Mini's companion piece, I've seen plenty of missed opportunities in today's full list trailer (IIRC, SNES Mini and NES Mini both had the full list revealed from the get-go, and the fact it wasn't the case with the PS Mini's "oh wow, I can't believe mah eyes" should have been a red flag for everyone) enough for me to cross it off my wishlist. I'm sad to write this, since regardless of my Nintendo heritage I still love my first PlayStation to death, but it's true.
Even by sticking to Sony-owned IPs there were better choices - Kula World and MediEvil come to mind - but even then there's room for improvement: having Crash Team Racing as the only ActiVision title would have made made the console sell itself, maybe a Crash 2 + CTR + Spyro 2 triplet would have turned the tables.
But I don't want my critique to be written off as too harsh or, worse, chalked up to me not being strictly a Sony fan nowadays - it had to be written in bold - so I'll go a little deeper in detail.
Platforming-wise, the original Rayman is a nice touch, as is Oddworld Abe's Oddysee (which will no doubt please one of the biggest PS-loving, not to mention British much like this very site, YouTube personalities, Caddicarus; and even then, he had more than this in mind); the problem is that they're also not very accessible games - the former by cheap level design, the latter by virtue of being a cinematic platformer - so unless you're a fan of either franchise or you're into a hard challenge, no platformer fan would have much of a reason to get this.
As far as fighting games, JRPGs and racers are concerned, however, there's much to love in this one. It could be argued that Final Fantasy VII could be a mean-spirited last hurrah from the Midgar cannon firing squad before the inevitable happens in 2019, but snarky remarks aside, the lineup is varied enough, and Persona is indeed a huge bonus for Atlus fans. The other highlight is part of the initial five, this time in the fighters' department: Tekken 3 istantly makes the Classic the only legal way to play Tekken 3 nowadays, in a vein not too dissimilar to Starfox 2 being the best-known selling point behind the SNES Mini. Racing games are self-explanatory, although the aforementioned Crash Team Racing might have singlehandedly avoided this entire article.
The stealth genre is also well represented here, but I'm not that much into it, so what am I exactly whining about here?
(spoiler alert: if you want this comment to end on a PS-friendly note, stop reading now and you've got yourself a positive review)
I'm talking about "all the rest", namely what I'd call the wasted slots - a pet peeve for many people when there's an upcoming gaming product, if "limited slots" are involved - in this otherwise good lineup. There are games that flat-out stole their genre's best example their rightful place in this console, if not their exact same IP's best entry (Grand Theft Auto 1 over GTA 2? The latter is easily the best top-down GTA among the two, so why not choosing that?).
I get the whole "too much good stuff to choose from, 20 games are just not enough" point @get2sammyb is trying to make - I've witnessed similar sugarcoating over at NintendoLife as well, so I can sort of relate - but that should have been even more of a reason to choose carefully the games in the list. I can easily see Intelligent Qube being chosen with a shrug after an unsuccesful phone call to ActiVision. I've spent the entirety of the trailer's length today counting down the numbers - "20, 19, 18...". By the time I reached 10, I was begging any of the titles @Sinton mentioned (in the comment he summed it all up best with) to pop up, to no avail.
The fact the heavy hitters mostly hail from Sony's nature (an underplayed nature then, a sad reality now) as the "big boys' console" - the Pegi 18 on the box is most likely meant to make some kind of statement when it ends up on shelves next to NES and SNES Minis - makes it clear that this was more meant to be an M-rated counterpart to its retro HDMI competition, rather than their Sony equivalent. The fact the first option on the poll, its most positive, is also the least voted - as of this writing, that is - speaks volumes of how hard(er than usual) to defend this is.
The silver lining, of course, is the remote possibility of adding more games on it, maybe a batch of ten chosen from the previous comment from @Sinton I mentioned, but as of now, as much as I wanted one little fling with the triangle-circle-square-cross this December - and I really did - I can't say I feel inclined to cough up a hundred euros for this.
@AlexSora89 It's not sugar coating, though, it's just the way it is. I've seen a lot of shouts for stuff like Suikoden online, but I'd personally much rather have Theme Hospital. But there'd be a lot of people who'd see Theme Hospital and say they'd rather have Lunar. We could go on forever, and that was much my point in the article.
Where are WipeOuts - the games that defined PSX ?
@Carl-G I really was hoping for Legend of Dragoon i have played FF7 enough and you can play that one everywhere. 😢
@get2sammyb The only real Playstation RPG Legend of Dragoon. 😢
@playstation1995 Parasite Eve 2, Twisted Metal World Tour, Saga Frontier that is on the Japanese console, Valkyria, Dino Crisis but above all Legend of Dragoon. 😢
@lacerz That game was the best those great endings. 😁
People are failing to see things from Sony's perspective. In recent years Sony created a niche market of remastering old games starting with God of War then more recently actually remaking them with Ratchet and Clank and Shadow of the Colossus. And those games sold well enough to tell Sony that people actually want to play older games with modern graphics and controls so it wouldn't have made sense to put a lot of games on that have either been remastered or remade. Plus they still need deals with 3rd parties, imagine if your Activision, would you want the old Crash and especially Spyro games on if your selling the remakes? Same goes for Tomb Raider as well.
Sony will also know that these mini consoles get hacked very quickly anyway regardless of lineup so from a business point of view is it worth spending a lot of money getting certain games on which in turn raises the cost which is probably more harmful in terms of sales? Or make sure you put a decent enough lineup out that keeps it below 100 quid and anyone wanting certain games on it will probably find an easy enough way to do so anyway?
I pretty much figured that most of the games I want won’t be on here. License issue and such. Though, not a bad list. But I won’t be getting it.
Yeah, me and my buds would take turns playing to get the ending for each driver. Fond memories.
Lots of good memories; the Alien Trilogy, Army Men, Castrol Honda Superbike, Colin McRae Rally, Colony Wars, Descent, Dino Crisis, Discworld, Driver, F1, King's Field , Nascar, V-rally etc.
The main ones though must be Gran Turismo.
I'll give you that, I got the point you were trying to make. Thing is, even with the most of good will I could have put in my article, your facts are another person's sugar-coating. Just as what you said is the way things are, the way I used the term "sugar-coating" is indeed the way things are, as a natural consequence. Quite the vicious circle - a conundrum, if you will.
Of course, my comment could be perceived as whining for that very reason - there's someone out there who, by sheer chance, wanted exactly these 20 games, and reading my comment is either shaking his fist in response or preparing a witty rebuttal (in the latter's case, my money's on @ShogunRok).
I've discussed it with my friend a moment ago, and he said that the offering is great in sampling the era, but at the same time the holes in the lineup are in plain sight. On the plus side, it gives a great "console gaming in the nineties" vibe. On the other... well, let's just say that, should the N64 Classic be real, it's gonna be a rematch that the N64, years later, would come out of on top. @rjejr might agree with me on this last one.
As a last-minute addendum to my previous comment, there's the fact most of today's Sony-owned IPs hails from the PS2 era, so I'm ready to buy the PS2 Classic (next year?) based on this assumption alone - I wouldn't mind finally getting started with the Jak and Daxter and Ratchet and Clank franchises this way (I did give Daxter and R&C Size Matters on PSP a fair chance, but neither quite "got" me). Throw in the three Kingdom Hearts games (or even sans Chain Of Memories) and we've got ourselves a no-brainer of a deal.
If my lousy on-call job on November will be enough to result in a decent December budget, I might still get the PS1 Classic out of either collectionism (which put the NES Classic in my radar as well, although the SNES Classic is the one I actually own at the moment) or the fact I could be able to carry around a 90's gaming room in a suitcase in the near future. As it stands now, however, I'm very on the fence, with the only point in the console's favor being my inner voice saying "but it looked so tempting in the reveal trailer, you wanted it, come oooooooon!".
For reference, here are the aforementioned YTer's, Caddicarus', thoughts on the whole ordeal. I sense a new video coming up.
Zelda and Mario only define the N64 to people who never owned the console. Anyone who had one will have fond memories of a rich and diverse (albeit small) library. Heck, Rare could release their own classic console with the games they had on the N64.
Edit: I second Parasite Eve 2 and Dino Crisis. Great games 😀
good article, but i feel like the writer is being too soft. of course no list would please everyone 100%, but i find it hard to find ANYONE who this list pleases... there are a few people out there, but they are in the minority. that says something. i can find maybe 5 games deserving to be on the classic console; not a very good ratio for the $130 asking price. now let us wait if this thing can be hacked.
It seems like a decent line-up. I won’t be getting one, but hey, cool for those who want to.
Also, according to the link for Revelations: Persona, Perosna 5 was on PS1. How did I miss this?!
There were some incredible games on psone... Resi 1-3, MGS, Syphon Filter 1-3, Tombi(a) 1+2, Spyro trilogy, Crash trilogy, Crash Team Racing, GTA [& London, and 2], FF7 8 and 9, Mr Domino, Pandemonium, Ape Escape, Silent Hills, Croc, Heart Of Darkness, Tenchu, Driver, Armored Core, Bloody Roar, Tekken... List goes on and on and on...
Will probably skip this, though will be interesting to see if the pal version is 60hz, which would be a good plus point as with Nintendo's mini consoles. If not, I may as well stick with the old PS TV and the PS1 games available on PSN. I would have liked to see Castlevania on there, I'm not sure some of these would age well.
@AlexSora89 N64 sucks. I hate those graphics. And that controller. That said, an N64 with only 5 games for $100 would probably look more enticing than this $100 PS1. I'm not even sure what those 5 would be, Mario64, OoT, 3D Donkey Kong, something by Rare they probably can't get the license for so there's no point making an N64. OK I really have no idea what games N64 had, gimme a sec... Ok those and Pokemon Snap. And Smash and MK.
Since you dragged me into this mess, I think N64 only gets 12 games for $100 - MK64, DK64, MK64, SSB, OoT, MM, Pokemon Snap, F-0X, Wave Race64, SF64, DK Racing and Pokemon Stadium. I think those are all 1st party so no licensing issues. Maybe 15 if they want to throw in a few 4 player games like Bomber Man and Mario Party 3 so they can sell 3 extra controllers to each person. Not Daikatana though. 🤣
Classic N64 would suck balls without Goldeneye and Perfect Dark. As for classic PlayStation, I’d want Worms, Soul Blade, Gran Turismo, Wipeout and Crash Bandicoot of course in there.
Any combination of Tomb Raider, FF Tactics, Castlevania SotN, PaRappa, SF Alpha 3 or Crash and I would’ve bitten.
As it is I’ll wait and see how successfully it can be hacked.
I like dragging you into messes
You not being keen on the idea of the N64 Mini, though, has to be the biggest swerve in NL/PS history.
It still saddens me to death that PlayStation - the first PlayStation, the brand's glory years - is now so vulnerable to what we call in Italy "scoring a goal without the goalie" on the N64's part. It would be, as I said, a role-swapped version of how the N64 vs. PS1 war played out. Hell, they could even do some SEGA-esque mean advertising by turning a selling point into a jab: "This one actually has a kart racer in it!".
And I don't know what's more sad about it, if it's the horrible design of the controller itself - truly a cocoon before the butterfly that was the GameCube controller hatched out of it - or the fact that Mario Kart 64 (apparently the inspiration behind the far superior Crash Team Racing) is easily the MK game that aged the worst.
Not worth $100.
I think its a pretty decent list and I'll be grabbing it. Side note, if they re-packaged Vita TVs with this plastic housing and sold them with Dualshocks, they could please almost everyone. Buy your classic games ala-cart. But since that is highly unlikely I will just enjoy both lol.
As I said in the another note, 20 games of all the library that has the playstation is a challenge of choice.
Then, it is more than obvious that many will feel disappointed when not being some of their favorite games (like me without some Need For Speed in the list), but, it's ok, some games in the list are very good anyway, and, well, fun for all!! ^.^
@AlexSora89 "You not being keen on the idea of the N64 Mini"
Well I think they will make one, but I'd have rather the rumoured Spyro & Crash 6 pack for $60 on Switch so the graphics don't make me claw my eyes out.
And really, why make a N64 Mini anyway? Havent' all of those worthwhile games been remade on the 3DS by now? Make a 3DS Mini with TV out instead, let people play the superior version rather than the inferior originals. Nintneod gave up on home consoles when it made the Switch a hybrid, why go back to N64? Or at least make the N64 Mini based on the Switch, a portable w/ TV out, that would crush the PS Mini. (Gonna bring things back on topic here, they get really annoyed if you go off topic even a little.)
Just like with the SNES mini, it was always going to be impossible to please everybody. When you have so many great games on a console and can only select 20 you're inevitably going to have somebody who is displeased. That said, I do think there were some glaring omissions where as Nintendo mostly got SNES' lineup right and even added a 'new' game in Star Fox 2.
That's a surprisingly poor selection of games. Surely it wouldn't have taken long for anyone at Sony to realise that most of the titles people would want weren't included?
And why would a Sony owned IP of WipeOut suffer from licensing issues? It was coded by Sony Liverpool. Tomb Raider and it's immediate sequels I can (possibly) understand as the Core original no doubt got sold to Crystal Dynamics?
Looks like i'll be keeping hold of the PS3 and Vita for a while longer!
Lo and behold.
@AlexSora89 I agreed with Reggie 3 times in 2 days and NY got hit by snow storm Avery, Central Park had it's biggest snow storm ever that early in November. Hellish conditions indeed.
Ouchie ouch! But after so much time has passed, I figured everything was A-OK.
@AlexSora89 "But after so much time has passed"
Only you could reply to a comment 3 months old about a snow storm, and lo and behold it's snowing again as I type this. For like the first time since that November storm. Spooky.
Still weird to see a reply in my inbox from you and Pushsquare. 😉New ND tomorrow, we need to focus on that. 😃 There will probably be another article on here today or tomorrow about how Sony needs to start doing it's own Directs. 🤣
What can I say, my PushSquare logins are erratic at best.
@AlexSora89 If we get another snowstorm at least I know who to blame. 😉
