If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.

The PlayStation Classic sees Sony throw its hat into the plug-and-play mini console ring, following Nintendo's success with the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition. The results were... mixed, to put it mildly.

The system quickly got backlash due to the game list not including several of the PS1's heavy-hitters (although exploits were later discovered that allowed the addition of your own games); the controllers being the original iteration released for the system, not including the analog sticks that PlayStation-series controllers have had ever since (which may explain the game selection); several games using their PAL versions even on NTSC consoles (see below); the hardware being so poor that the SNES Classic was better at running PS1 games if modified; and for using an open-source PS1 emulator (although Sony was at least honest about it by crediting the developers).

Regional Differences

Game Selection

Eight titles differ between the Japanese and other releases.

Exclusive to the International versions:

Exclusive to the Japanese version:

Battle Arena Toshinden, Cool Boarders 2, Destruction Derby, Jumping Flash!, Resident Evil: Director's Cut, Tekken 3, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six use their PAL versions in all regions. This may have been done so the system could be sold in Quebec, which requires the French version of a video game to be included if it exists, as this had previously blocked the sale of the SNES Classic there.
