Pre-ordered that now. It'll be from the GF for Christmas so worst case scenario, I'm not out of pocket

Not expecting any huge games on it, I hope they don't pull a Sega and put the same crap games nobody wants. I'm happy enough with Tekken 3 and Ridge Racer so far.

I hope they put Tomb Raider II on it, that's a game I'd like to play again....

Not sure though I'm gonna bother pre ordering it, if I dont get one I wont panic as the SNES classic was my BIG one and I just had to have it. PS2 was the first playstation I really took seriousy.

Preordered one, even though I doubt there will be the supply shortages like with the NES (unless on purpose). Interesting to see what the lineup will be and what sort of regional differences there will be.

Can imagine the amount of hassle getting soundtracks for the likes of Wipeout licensed again

I think this will flop if it doesn't have Intelligent Qube

I've resisted pre ordering one of these so far but part of me is still trying to find a reason to order it.

I mean it'll be a nice piece to add to the collection but I've the original system along with a massive back catalogue of titles that'll probably come with this. I've also the PS2, 3 & 4, PSP +Vita that can also play titles in one form or another, so well covered.

...and more logically the system is going to be fairly limited hack wise. Unlike the SNES/NES mini where you can fit every game into the 4gb of flash memory.. If this is hacked, I suspect this will only have maybe 16gb to fit the stock 20 games.. and it'll be a pain having to load up only 20 at a time , id want a sizable selection at hand. Then add the omission of an analogue controller for certain games..

I just think €99 on this could be better spent elsewhere adding to my collection.

By the time you factor in cd audio the game files for the PS get quite big.... Or so I am told.... ahem....

Dual omission is annoying but understandable given the sub $100 price point.
Speculation that they may release dual shock controllers as accessories, but doesn't make a huge amount of sense if the built-in 20 games doesn't require analogue sticks.

Personally this is just a collectors item for me, I'll still end up using the Nvidia Shield for Playstation stuff on HDMI

I suppose the really good PS games appeared in the middle to late life of the console, and most of those included DS support, and in most of those cases really only played well with analogue.
So, if you must play Crash and Spyro, it's going to be a chore, more so as you'll have to use a digital pad!
Me, I would like a NegCon!
Only way to play Ridge Racer and it's sequels!

If they include a couple more multi disc games I can see it having 32gb flash but that's still not a huge amount in the grand scheme of things.
Maybe we'll have a way of loading from a usb similar to the nintendo minis.
