    "It’ll be out on December 3 in the US and Canada, and includes games like Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, and Wild Arms. There’ll be 20 bundled titles in total, but those five are the only ones announced at the moment."

    Looks interesting but I wonder how much I would actually use it.

    I need to see more of the games that will be on it, and maybe some more technical detail

    Pre ordered, however, would be nice to be able to play the original disc's. Seems a big waste having perfectly serviceable software but no hardware to use them.
    Retro gaming is massive.

    Ordered, this will be a brilliant Xmas present for my 15 and 12 year old nephews (despite it probably being used in my guest bedroom obviously)

    Thanks for the heads up

    I think the main obstacle will be how much free memory there will be.
    Will most likely be 16GB onboard memory for the 20 installed games. Doesn't really leave much left over for installing extra games.

    I bet someone will be able to find a way around it via larger storage device etc; I wait patiently to see what they use and if it will be soldered on etc or removable/replaceable.

    NES and SNES didn’t either. Just plug it into a USB port on your tv with the supplied USB cable.

    I’ll wait and see what other games other available, seems to be just Japanese developed stuff so far.

    If it doesn’t have Formula 1, Colin McRae Rally, World Cup 98 or WWF Smackdown I’m not gonna bother.

    Would be great if was network enabled with some kind online store (with reasonable prices).

    Looking at pics there is no network port, hoping for WiFi then but I doubt it, does the SNES mini etc have network access ?

    No network access on the mini SNES or nes but with those consoles (well actually any Nintendo console) many of the best games were developed by Nintendo themselves so are built into consoles.

    Ps1’s best games came from all over the place so would be nice so have ability so add games if built in selection isn’t up to scratch.

    The price seems way too high for this. It needs Metal Ger Solid, Crash Bandicoot or Resident Evil games on it, I doubt it will have any of those.

    Can see MGS or RE might make it actually. Crash no as there really is little point with the enhanced trilogy not long being released. But Crash was a huge console seller.

    I pre-ordered, but quite prepared to cancel if the games are not to my liking. However, it might also be hacked and I guess thats the end of that discussion.

    It’s probably 99% certain to be on it seeing as it’s one of only a couple of 1st party Sony developed games on the PlayStation.

    They've missed out the most important aspect of this machine! What resolution and what upscaling it will have.......No one is gonna want that low res crap stretched across a 4K screen, it has to include integer scaling, or a nice 1080p upscale, 720p minimum.
