Plug 'n Play Paradise: Perfunctorily Presenting PlayStation

Ye olde thread.

And if you're just joining us, this is where we collectively discuss those little plug 'n play consoles that come with a collection of games that hook straight up to your telly-vee, no fuss, no muss.

Incidentally, this isn't really for stuff like fourth-party clone consoles like Retron 5 and whatnot -- that better fits this lovely thread here. And I don't think we can even start talking about flaky pastry dishes using berries from the Rubus genus.

So, what've we got here? We've got...

The Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition -- available now! I don't mean it's just been released, I mean you can actually go into a store and potentially buy one now!

ezno2na3kwd3.jpg

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition, featuring the never-before-released Star Fox 2, as well as the original Star Fox and Yoshi's Island, two Super FX Chip-based Super NES games that were never released on Virtual Console.

More recently, there's:

gzoisdkn2p19.jpg

The NEOGEO Mini, which, while providing its own screen, can plug into a television, so it totally counts.

It contains the following 40 titles (in all caps, because that's now SNK NEOGEO rolls):
1.THE KING OF FIGHTERS '94
2.THE KING OF FIGHTERS '95
3.THE KING OF FIGHTERS '96
4.THE KING OF FIGHTERS '97
5.THE KING OF FIGHTERS '98
6.THE KING OF FIGHTERS '99
7.THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2000
8.THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2001
9.THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2002
10.THE KING OF FIGHTERS 2003
11.SAMURAI SHODOWN II
12.SAMURAI SHODOWN IV
13.SAMURAI SHODOWN V SPECIAL
14.FATAL FURY SPECIAL
15.REAL BOUT FATAL FURY
16.REAL BOUT FATAL FURY 2
17.GAROU: MARK OF THE WOLVES
18.WORLD HEROES PERFECT
19.KIZUNA ENCOUNTER
20.ART OF FIGHTING
21.THE LAST BLADE
22.THE LAST BLADE 2

26.CYBER-LIP
27.SHOCK TROOPERS 2ND SQUAD
28.TOP HUNTER RODDY & CATHY
29.NINJA COMMANDO
30.BURNING FIGHT
31.METAL SLUG
32.METAL SLUG 2
33.METAL SLUG 3
34.SENGOKU3
35.ALPHA MISSION II
36.TWINKLE STAR SPRITES
37.BLAZING STAR
38.TOP PLAYER'S GOLF
39.SUPER SIDEKICKS
40.PUZZLED

Not to be outdone, SEGA has had numerous plug 'n play consoles over the years, all from the folks at AtGames (who've also made these for everything from Atari to Coleco, though they've slimmed their offerings in recent), the latest of which being:

4a6ztin05ihp.jpg

The AtGames 2017 SEGA Genesis Flashback

AtGames is known for making a lot of these plug 'n play consoles, among them the SEGA Genesis, the results not always being... great.



While their latest has improved somewhat...



...word has it that SEGA's announced Mega Drive Mini, now confirmed for U.S. and European release, has been delayed until 2019. What's more, they say they're letting a Japanese developer handle the software, which means that SEGA may have told AtGames...

Finally, the big news that's pushed us to a new thread:



Sony has announced the PlayStation Classic, arriving December 3rd for $99.99 USD (MSRP) / $129.99 CAN (MSRP).

It will include two non-DualShock controllers, a USB power cord (minus AC adapter), and 20 games, including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash, Ridge Racer Type 4, Tekken 3, Wild Arms...

And many more!

    Yeah, that might be it. Well, extra innards, maybe, since the shell is clearly different. Either way, it just adds to the unprofessional, half-assedness that has become the AtGames hallmark. Here, have a controller where 2/3 of the buttons are never used in any of the games! At least the Pong package seems to have an appropriate looking controller.

    I know a bunch of people have been putting predictions for whats on the PS Classic.

    my guess:

    Final Fantasy VII
    Tekken 3
    Wild Arms
    Ridge Racer Type 4
    Jumping Flash
    Crash Bandicoot
    Spyro the Dragon
    Metal Gear Solid
    Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
    Parappa the Rapper
    Intelligent Qube
    Tomba
    MediEvil
    Gran Turismo 2
    Hot Shots Golf 2
    Legend of Dragoon
    Twisted Metal
    Wipeout
    Syphon Filter
    Cool Boarders

    A few 3rd party titles, and the rest all Sony Published titles. A few of them dont necessarily need to be the first one, just pick whichever is regarded as the best in the series.

    Hopefully if they go with Twisted Metal (and they should!) their entry will be Twisted Metal 2. Until Black, that was the high point of the series.

    While Crash was a huge character for Sony at the time, part of me would be surprised to see him on the mini since the remastered version of the first 3 games exists and is pretty solid.

    I don't see why that would stop them. Interest in one can provoke interest in the other. Same with Wipeout and a whole bunch of other games.

    It was a sequel developed by Midway (the NA publisher of Pac-Man) without Namco's consent. Namco currently holds the rights to the game though and it does pop up every now and then in namco arcade collections.

    I think there will be more 3rd party games than that. I think Silent Hill and Resident Evil will be on it. As well as a Street Fighter game (probably Street Fighter Alpha 3) and a Mega Man game (either Mega Man X4 or Mega Man Legends).

    I think the thing that makes the difference for me is how recent it is. Like the Crash remaster was just released on Steam a couple of months ago (I'm aware it's been around longer on the PS4). I can see people being less interested in the original on an official emulator for that reason, or at least Sony assuming people will be less interested.

    That being said I'll happily eat my words if I'm wrong; I love Crash Bandicoot.

  • fortyforty Registered User regular
    I thought Crash Bandicoot was terrible. The N64 showed me what a great 3D platformer could be. And of course we'd already had great 2D platformers. To me, Crash was neither.

    Yeah, Square definitely wants to remind people of that hilarious time where they didn't finish a game and published the ending as fanfic, years before Steam made that sort of thing popular. It does stink that they did the pre-Dual Shock controller for the retro feels and therefore automatically excluded Ape Escape from contention. I do wonder if Mega Man X4, 8, or Legends is a possibility though...

    I would think M rated games would be no problem. It's for people who grew up sith the system. They have to have one of the resident evil. Hopefully 3 as the others are easy to come by. Dino crisis and parasite eve would be awesome as well.

    I'm trying to think of the best fighters on the system besides tekken. A battle arena would be nice but habe they aged well? SFA3 Maybe? Mk trilogy could be cool.

    I'd love FFT and FF9, but feel tactics especially has been redone a lot.

    A wipe out is a must. Were there any other good racers besides gran turrismo? I'd love breath of fire 3.

    There were so many good game's but I'm having a hard time on the spot thinking of the game that defined the system for me. Metal gear solid has to be on there. As does SoTN, but again, that been done to death.

    Their MGS game should be on there, I never got into it although so e people lilex it better than MGS.

    One game I'd love is legacy of kain. The original.

    I'm more curious of the guts, if it's more powerful than the nes offerings, and hackability.

    I think Blood Omen would be a non-starter. I'm not sure what the legal issues surrounding it are, but there's a reason it's never shown up on Steam or GoG.
    It used to be complications between Crystal Dynamics who bought the franchise from Silicon Knights, but I don't know what it is now.

    Soul Reaver is a definite possibility, though.

    I think someone said they'd gotten PS games running on a hacked SNES classic (the only main limiter was the storage space), so it might be the same hardware, just with more storage.
    If it is easily hackable, that's gonna turn it into a very popular buy.

    Speaking of game ratings, it always surprised me that FF7 was rated Teen. It had quite a few instances of people saying "shit," which was pretty unprecedented for the time.
