    I’m giving you a like specifically for hopping on the soap box for the sake of old gaming shops. Props to you Jake.

    I think they made a selection of games that would only fit to 16gb storage sadly. Though you can load all PS1 games to your modded NES/SNES classic with Wii classic controller just fine but it seems like his hardware is more powerful than NES/SNES/RasPi.

    Do the controllers work on the ps4 ?



  4. Pascal Biatis on December 8, 2018 at 5:35 am

    DRIVER would have been great.

    My PlayStation works and I own the greatest cart racing game ever made in CTR. Wtf were they thinking not putting Crash Time Warped and CTR on this thing? Looks cool but who needs a $100 paper weight. If it had expandable memory, and they were to release game packs, then possibly I would buy it. However they also omitted analog sticks, so l will just play my good as the day I bought it PlayStation.

    Seriously Sony was this really a more cost effective thing to do than rerelease the mini PSOne with some preloaded games, and still have it function as an actual PlayStation?

    Hard pass. And a dam shame.

    I’d rather of Legend of Legia on here over FF7. Don’t get me wrong, I love FF7 and it is one of my favorite video games, but there is just so many other ways to play it (PS3, PS4, STEAM, Switch, and probably a few others) Legia is a great JRPG that is at a point, becomes unplayable on the PS3. Additionally, Legend of Dragoon is a game with a devoted community wanting a sequel, and being on this would have been better than nothing.

    PLAYSTATION CLASSHIT

    I don’t comment on these videos that often, but this one will be the exception. I really appreciate the advice at the end of the video, for those who want the better nostalgia experience. Although those original PlayStations are older, they will still outlast that retro emulator box they are selling. I personally really am disappointed in Sony for taking the emulator shortcut. They really do have the resources to have gone completely hardware on it. They just simply chose not to.



  9. Trippy Bruh on December 8, 2018 at 5:40 am

    I think we would all appreciate a N64 remake.



  10. Joshua McClendon on December 8, 2018 at 5:42 am

    Thank you!!!



  11. Águila701 on December 8, 2018 at 5:43 am

    Or just use a PS3 and download PS1 games to play on it.



  12. matt trustain on December 8, 2018 at 5:43 am

    needed wild 9 and appocolispe



  13. quan pham hong quan on December 8, 2018 at 5:45 am

    Simple! Just don’t buy it!



  14. Viddi O games on December 8, 2018 at 5:46 am

    "mom and pop" stores over charge sorry familia I can’t support them



  15. Antonio Peterson on December 8, 2018 at 5:47 am

    I feel like tekken is the main selling point



  16. Chrome Child on December 8, 2018 at 5:57 am

    I wasn’t gonna buy it anyways because I knew they wouldn’t do it justice.



  17. Chris December on December 8, 2018 at 5:59 am

    I think it’s just a tad that will die Quickly. But that’s just my thought.



  18. Joe White on December 8, 2018 at 6:00 am

    Nice shout-out to POPnGAMES!! I live near there. Whitestone represent.



  19. Charles Brown on December 8, 2018 at 6:01 am

    Before you BUY!?

  20. Davy Du Tré on December 8, 2018 at 6:02 am

    Garbage you don’t give this away as present or if it’s a gift for someone you hate you are ok



  21. Davy Du Tré on December 8, 2018 at 6:03 am

    Worth like 20 euro in my opinion you can have my ad games sega genesis console for that money also complete waste of money



  22. Thomas Kings on December 8, 2018 at 6:04 am

    not worth at the moment, but theyre working on a mod that allows you to install games on USB.



  23. Zombie Terrorist on December 8, 2018 at 6:04 am

    the game at 3:20 ?? i remember playing that !



  24. Jerome Scalisi on December 8, 2018 at 6:04 am

    The answer to that question has to be Spyro The Dragon, Spyro 2, and Spyro 3. XENOGEARS would also be my main game that I would like to see on the next iteration of the Playstation Classic.

    The market is over saturated with mini consoles right now. Bad timing on Sony’s part.



  25. Charlie James on December 8, 2018 at 6:07 am

    If you don’t have the original…
    Just by the clone…



  26. Mark Ellis on December 8, 2018 at 6:07 am

    Iv still got my old Ps1 and its mod chip so iv got tuns of games for it the ps1 classic Is a waste of money



  27. Njabulo Sebati on December 8, 2018 at 6:09 am

    If you have a PS2 or PSP, you’re fine



  28. M 8 B O I ツ on December 8, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Does it have thrasher skate or die because if not then no



  29. Landon Producciones on December 8, 2018 at 6:15 am

    Well… I’m a bit dissapointed… I actually thought they’d add… (as a surprise maybe?)… a lan port? Or a Wifi chip? To… idk… EVENTUALLY… After they sold enough copies to the ones who just wanted it for nostalgia, people could get other games through PS store…. but whatever…



  30. kanzaki0001 on December 8, 2018 at 6:15 am

    This is a pass.



  31. Nic Merida on December 8, 2018 at 6:15 am

    6:25 So Jake’s mom is Edie Falco?



  32. Gator Wizard on December 8, 2018 at 6:16 am

    My local vintage gamestore got shut down in our local mall. They replaced it with a VR gaming room… It’s kind of an eyesore and I used to go to that store everyday which really sucks. These buissnesses have some really cool people so definitely check one out if you have one in your town.



  33. lewisvasquez4 on December 8, 2018 at 6:17 am

    Chrono Cross and Digimon World 3 are the only PlayStation 1 things I care about and maybe legend of dragoon although I didn’t finish that one



  34. MooniGaming on December 8, 2018 at 6:18 am

    You can get the original console for far cheaper online.



  35. Kendall Morarity on December 8, 2018 at 6:18 am

    What is the video at 1:40



  36. Leeo 503 on December 8, 2018 at 6:18 am

    I would like to play pepsei man game again



  37. Paul Allen on December 8, 2018 at 6:19 am

    Ohh so that’s why there’s no backwards compatibility on the PS4. So it was about money? Who would have thought.



  38. Bobbi on December 8, 2018 at 6:19 am

    I had a small little store called "Gamechangers" that was literally at the end of my block, they closed down a couple weeks ago while I was at college they had hundreds of old xbox and playstation games made me sad to not see when I came home



  39. Blackopscool11 on December 8, 2018 at 6:20 am

    I would of got it if you could download games on it or being able to pick the 20 preloaded because I don’t care for these games😭😭😭😭😔😔😔



  40. Brock Smalley on December 8, 2018 at 6:20 am

    Legend of Legaia & Breath of Fire 3 Two of the greatest games of all time



  41. TanukiKGA on December 8, 2018 at 6:22 am

    Hate to be this guy, but it’s not the "PSone Classic", since it’s not based on the redesigned console. The first version , that this is based on, is the PSX. PSone was the smaller one, that came in a much lighter shade of grey (almost white) that didn’t come out until the 2000’s. 🙂



  42. hassaan masood on December 8, 2018 at 6:23 am

    if i am gonna buy this it will be for metal gear solid and resident evil only



  43. Art Vandelay on December 8, 2018 at 6:25 am

    dude is james gandolfini your dad as well?



  44. Urameshii on December 8, 2018 at 6:26 am

    From the start there were so many reasons why I had no interest in buying one of these, first of which is the fact that it’s a blatant cash grab from Sony trying to ride the coattails of Nintendo, the controllers seem nice but I hate that they don’t have thumbsticks, I know they wanted to keep it classic and nostalgic but I’d rather have the option of thumbsticks and just not use them for certain games.
    Also nice job turning this into a plug to shop local stores instead, honestly it’s really rare that I ever buy brand new games at any of the big stores, there are so many great old gems that you can find for great prices at those kinds of places.



  45. thomas bebie on December 8, 2018 at 6:26 am

    PlayStation 2 classic would be amazing but they REALLY CANT mess it up. Think… 007 Night Fire



  46. masonjf07 on December 8, 2018 at 6:27 am

    I never had a PS1 so um I’m getting this…



  47. 1usi0n on December 8, 2018 at 6:27 am

    god damn people are suckers for nostalgia



  48. Gizmo Mogwai on December 8, 2018 at 6:30 am

    In Europe that playstation mini is 130€. For the same price, i can get 1 NES mini AND 1 SNES mini. Or 2 new games. Or 1 year of Humble Monthly… Much better ways to spend 130€.



  49. gameranx on December 8, 2018 at 6:31 am

    If done properly, which game console would you love to see get a good "classic" treatment?



  50. LB_718 on December 8, 2018 at 6:31 am

    I know there was one video game store in NY in the city I forgot the name of it but it’s on six Avenue between 40th St. and 37th St. somewhere in that area
