Is there any legal reason behind not having Parappa the Rapper on there? It's a Sony IP, right?

There's a remastered version of Parappa the Rapper on the PS4, so there SHOULDN'T be any legal blockage.

I don't think licensed games should be on these Classic consoles, so Toy Story 2 and Harry Potter seem like unusual choices.

To each his own, but I will admit to being surprised about seeing Toy Story 2 in that list. Medal of Honor was also an unexpected title, but that's more to do with how there hasn't been a new one in years.

I'm wary of buying a PS Classic because it feels like a few months down the line Sony will announce a "new and improved" version, making this an Obvious Beta if I've ever seen one.

The lack of classics and fan favorites like Crash, Klonoa, Mega Man Legends and MediEvil was what made me skeptical on the PlayStation Classic (among other circumstances). Now all this reading about secret features accessed through keyboards and list of games that were apparently planned to appear has convinced me that I dodged a bulllet.

I wouldn't be surprised if in a few months time, we got a PlayStation Classic Plus with more games (or better yet, all the listed games) with 2 DualShock controllers. (Actually, I would be surprised, but that's beside the point.)

It's kind of impressive to me how half-assed this product is.

Here's an idea: have the pre-loaded games, yes, but also make it so you can download games from PSN to a flashcart. I still wouldn't buy it myself but that would make the system 500% times better.

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. ...not really though.

Re: Old games.

So, I played the fuck outta HPatSS back in the day, though I always got stuck trying to levitate the cage to get the key, because I could never do it right and it would wake up the troll and he would trample me to death.

And I played TS 2 all the time on N64. Me and by bro actually ran through it a while back. I always thought climbing that goddamn tree in the second level was hard... and it still fucking is.

Feeling like the collection of pre-loaded games on the PlayStation Classic is underwhelming, rightfully so?

Great news, you can add more games through the magic of hacking!

For those who don't talk hacker: because the PS Classic apparently doesn't run a signature check, it's super easy to dump new content into the hardware when it's connected via USB. Example: You want Dino Crisis on your PS Classic? You can put it in yourself!
