As much as I enjoyed some of the more arcadey adventures (FFVII, MGS), I doubt I'd play them again. Would be tempted to play the more arcadey offerings, but I don't think I'd fork out for it.

Surprised Tomb Raider isn't on there, guess they couldn't get permission for it.
Yeah, an iconic PS1 game for me.

The only PlayStation exclusive (i.e. not available on PC as well) game I cared about was Silent Hill. Which I played on PC by means of ePSXe :lol:

So from what I've seen it's going to be using an open source emulator in a custom box...You're basically paying $100 for the fancy box then.

Having said that the C64 mini is basically that and I love that little thing. It also might mean it will be fairly easy to hack/add the ability to load in other PS games.

You are right @beanz

It's apparently going to used the ARM based PCSX ReARMed open source emulator.

You can run the same emulator with a Raspberry Pi and RetroPie:
