It's quite a poor line up. There's a few good ones there but an awful lot of duds. Persona 1 was butchered in English and is missing literally half the game as it was cut. Then including Resi directors cut which is a butchered version of the original. The music is awful in it. Why they didn't include the original is baffling.

Then there's utter crap like the awful port of rainbow six, toshinden and some badly aged games like destruction derby and twisted metal.

Missed the boat on RPGS. Very bad selection other than ff7.

Digital controller kills it for me.

Interest on hold until analog controllers made work and I understand hackability

Why buy three? Is the US one not the same as the PAL one but in 60Hz?

Half the list is a waste of time, plus I'd rather the first three Ridge Racer games instead of type4.
No Wipeout 2097 either.

No Gran Turismo, Castlevania or Wipeout games, I would have expected at least a couple of those to appear.
Klonoa, Einhander or Tony Hawk's 2 would also have been a nice addition. I think I'll be cancelling my preorder looking at that lineup.

Surprised not to see Gran Turismo considering it's an internal developer but I suppose the likes of Toyota don't want to be in current racing games and along with the soundtracks of that and Wipeout, probably makes licencing difficult.

Armored Core, Gradius and Parasite Eve on the Japanese console among a few others.

Battle arena toshinden, twisted metal and destruction derby might be iconic but they aren't worth playing and hardly as iconic as wipeout

Destruction Derby I don't mind, not in the same league as WipeOut mind...disappointing list, debating whether to cancel or not

No tomb raider did they not run there entire advertising campaign around that when it came out no crash bandicoot or wipeout I know everyone’s going to have there own game they think should be there and you can’t please everyone but I’m not a huge tomb raider fan and I still think it’s a game that goes hand in hand with PlayStation it’s like having an Xbox mini with out halo

I'm guessing games like wipe out and gran turismo may have fallen foul of music licensing rights

I already kind of assumed that for wipeout.

The list reads more like a YouTube fan list then 20 heavy hitters for the system

Exactly.

Tomb Raider does feel an odd omission as it was the face of PlayStation for a long time.

And no music rights concerns
