Happy Monday everyone!
I’m amused at all the “classic” editions of consoles popping up. Miniature versions of the original consoles, these classic ones are more Rachel’s and my size!
So. The PlayStation Classic. It’s coming out December 3rd for about 100 bucks with 20 games, two wired controllers and an HDMI cable to connect the console to the television. It does not include a USB AC adapter to, you know, power the console on.
(Which I really don’t understand? Nintendo’s NES Classic also didn’t include an AC adapter, which baffled my mind. Granted, we have the SNES Classic’s adapter, but still. Did Nintendo assume everyone would already have that? Does Sony assume everyone would have that? I’m not even sure if the SNES Classic’s adapter would work with the PlayStation Classic–and I’ll stop ranting about this.)
We actually had an original PlayStation when we were younger — and still do, actually, it’s chilling in a storage box with a few other decades-old consoles — but it wasn’t a console we used too often.
Our collection of PlayStation games wasn’t that extensive. I’m certain the games we mostly played were the Spyro trilogy (and Peter Pan: Return to Neverland… I seem to remember that one). Taking a look at the list of 20 games that will be on the PlayStation Classic, there’s not much there for us. While there are plenty of titles I recognize — rather, I’ve recognized the titles of their sequels or spiritual successors — the only game on the Classic that I’ve actually tried playing before would be Final Fantasy VII.
We’re pretty certain this is a classic console that we’ll skip. I wonder, how much nostalgic does it have for people who regularly played the original?
