With the PlayStation Classic’s release less than a month away, I went to PlayStation HQ this week for three hours of hands-on time with Sony’s nostalgic mini-console. It plays its selection of 32-bit classics like Final Fantasy VII and Resident Evil: Director’s Cut just fine, but the features of the device are pretty much the bare minimum.

Yesterday Sony surprised us announcing the PlayStation Classic, a mini version of the PS1. Following in the footsteps of the Nintendo mini consoles, the Classic will come with 20 beloved retro games from the PS1 era, such as Final Fantasy 7 and Tekken 3.
This news has me reflecting on the PS1 games I loved. While I adored the obvious choices like Tomb Raider, Spyro, Tekken and Gran Turismo, there were some obscure games that I was equally attached to. Possibly even bad ones.
Oh dear. The PlayStation Classic video game console has started popping up on eBay at ridiculously inflated prices. Hopeful "sellers" are currently charging between $400 and $1000 for something they don't even own (the device doesn't actually launch until December). Do not be fooled.
