I remember some of the problem is that not everyone uses a computer which has a USB port, perhaps it's just a mobile device. I've seen also perhaps it's the 120 vs 110v we use but some devices just refuse to behave jacked into the USB port on a TV. I remember the original model before the shape change of the chromecast having all sorts of drop outs, even the one I scooped up in some bin did it so I had to wall adapt it to play nice. Also it does come off as pretty tight fisted and overall cheap if you sell a $100 item and can't provide to them which is probably a 20 cent piece of wiring and plastic if that as it creates an inconvenience issue.

It was really shitty when Nintendo did it here with the... DSi and the various 3DS models I think it was, as those used Nintendo's own proprietary AC adapter plugs and not USB cables.

But yeah, with these mini consoles, usually they only need whatever the standard volts that any normal phone or tablet adaptor uses. We've got a handful in my house, more than we have devices, as companies used to always ship them with everything. I can understand it from a cost-saving perspective to be honest, since a lot of people have loads lying around their houses.

Are there any glaring, notable PS1 titles that aren't available for DL on Vita or PS3?

Maybe that would be a draw? I've been looking for an excuse to get a Vita for years... :lol:. Maybe if all these games are on Vita PSN, I jump.

Tons. The King’s Field series and Silent Bomber spring to mind immediately.

It'll be interesting to compare the final list of 20 on PS Classic to PSN availability.

Then add up those a la carte PSN prices.

[ADD]

Worth noting Tekken 3 is not currently an available PSOne Classic. List:

The other 3 games listed currently are $6 each and FF7 for $10.

I'm more trying to think are there games that they could throw on it that I don't have access to on my ps3/ps4. Throw on Einhander and Gex 3 maybe, but I don't even know if anyone still owns the rights to Gex :P Well, if they put Lunar 1 & 2 on it, I would throw my money at them, but I don't think I'm their targeted market :P

Okay... we know these 5:
Final Fantasy 7
Ridge Racer Type 4
Wild Arms
Jumping Flash
Tekken 3

Here's an educated guess at the other 15 we'll see (not my "wish" list):
Metal Gear Solid
Gran Turismo
Syphon Filter
Crash Bandicoot
Crash Team Racing
Tomb Raider
Resident Evil 2
Silent Hill
Jet Moto
Spyro
PaRappa the Rapper
Twisted Metal
Tony Hawk Pro Skater
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
Rayman

[Edit/Add: I left off a huge one... SoTN. I imagine it'll be on there. Likely bumping one of my predictions above.]

Obviously some of the sequels could go either way. We may see some more RPGs, but with the original 5 shown having 2 RPGs, I am curious if they add more. The Japanese market will have more RPGs is my guess.

I'd love to see DOOM, Quake 2, or Duke to cover the FPS genre but I don't think it'll happen. I have most genres covered other than FPS.

Think I missed any big ones?

Good list. Due to licensing issues, I would be very surprised if Gran Turismo and THPS were included. I also would not be shocked if “M” rated titles, like Resident Evil 2, were not included so that the console has broader appeal.

True. The licenses could hold those 2 up. Does Ridge Racer not use real car names?

We discussed M rated games a few pages back. The first Syphon Filter is rated teen. Good there. After thinking on it ... Can you have a PS classic without Metal Gear? I don't think you can. That alone would generate so much negative press. If you have 1 M rated game, it blows it wide open for RE & SH games. I like the parental PIN idea for M titles.

hmmm.... after some though I left off 2D fighter although the system wasn't know for it. Will we see a MK or SF game?

Also... if they're going for mass appeal we might see more 2D and 3D platformers other than Rayman, Jumping Flash, Spyro, & Crash. Some wildcards...
Gex
Gex Enter the Gecko
Tomba!
Croc
Klanoa
Mega Man X games
Lomax (too cult classic)
Return to Sony and Microsoft
