Inevitable. Sony has announced today the new Playstation Classic to be released in 3rd december. 20 games included, confirmed: Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms.

To psx experts: as to those games confirmed, are they worth playing? Which other games might be included?

If it includes Crash Team Racing (4 players), WipeOut (with link), WipeOut 3 Special Edition (with all the original music) then it might be worth a punt. Otherwise I'll be sticking with my PS2, original discs, ISOs and an emulator on the PC.
Fighting/beat 'em ups games don't float my boat.
Good luck to the system though.

Tekken 3 is ace but Ridge Racer Type 4? With no analogue sticks? Rage Racer would have been by far the better choice. Actually, the lack of analogue controls limits the games that will be any good. No Ape Escape, Gran Turismo would suck, and Rapid Racer, G-Police, Colony Wars would be pointless.

Wild Arms and FFVII? If EU and US get the same game list as Japan and it's going to be padded with tedious and irritating RANDOM BATTLE!!!!! JRPGs then it's really going to look a poor deal.

Crash Team Racing would be ace but would need 2 more controller ports.

Be good if they sold extra controllers as they originals are very good and would provide another source of hackable ones to turn into 9-pin joysticks.

Looks pretty neat, but if it's not easy access to a massive library of games then I'll pass. Having said that, if it only had Einhänder, R-Type Delta and Tekken 2 then I'd be using my left hand to wrestle my right off the 'buy now' button this December*.

I can't tell from the site: how are new games likely to be loaded into this?

If it's hackable like the NES and SNES mini's were then this will be a must have item.

Surprised Tomb Raider isn't on there, guess they couldn't get permission for it.

Japanese version has Parasite Eve included. I loved that game.

It's a shame that the system does not have internet access so you could buy games to add to it. Heres hoping that the first iterations will he hackable. :D

Back to the emulator on the PC or bung my original discs in the PS2. There's nothing in that bundle of games to make me put my hand in my pocket and pull out my wallet and buy it.
Ben playing Wipeout 3SE on emulation for the first time in years, starting from the very beginning. Damn, some of those race tracks are a bitch to beat.

Wipeout and Rollcage were stunning games on the PS1. They really were games of their time, packed full of classic dance tunes and just 'balls to the wall' fun.

I'm hoping that GRIP will be a good current gen version of Rollcage
