The PlayStation Classic is, at most accounts, a bust. Men måske 20-line lineup sparked noget indenfor dig: The drive of a collector, someone who now needs to own each of the included games. Det er mulig at grab alle sammen med varierende mengder legwork, hvis du er så tilbøyelig. If the PlayStation Classic's disappointing emulation and uninspired package is not doing it for you, then this is the best way to grab what's in its library without picking up the system itself.
The easy grabs
The PlayStation Store has several of these PS1 games available to purchase under its, uh , PSone Classic brand. These games are available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable, neither of which are the most convenient platforms to play on these days. But true collectors can find the games below with ease; It's especially nice for people looking to sample these games a la carte.
Most of these games cost $ 5.99, with a select few – Final Fantasy 7 Metal Gear Solid Resident Evil Director's Cut – Available for $ 9.99.
The remaining seven games on the PlayStation Classic are harder to come by. These are the really rare games, or at least the ones that Sony has not given us an easier way to play in the decades since they first launched. We've grabbed recent, average-priced eBay listings of the complete, original, black-label editions of these games as examples here, because that's probably the best place to hunt these games down: eBay. Det betyr at det ikke er noen garanti for at du kan finne eller få en kopi av Intelligent Qube or the original Persona whenever you want it.
So is the PlayStation Classic a good value?
Yes, but only if you desperately want all 20 of these games. That's very unlikely, according to our review. Og de spil du måske ønsker at spille, er nok ikke i deres bedste spilbare tilstand, takket være nogle fattige emulationer med PlayStation Classic-hardware. If you're a collector, you would not like the PlayStation Classic anyway; It's not close to an authentic experience. And if you're a casual PlayStation fan, you're better off just picking and choosing the games you'd like to try out.
