@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

What would be cool is if you hook a DualShock through USB and it unlocks a secret copy of Ape Escape, a la the "hidden" Star Fox 2 in the SNES Classic.

But that aside, Bushido Blade or bust.

https://www.ign.com/...-ps-peripherals

Standard cell AC adaptors will work, system will NOT support newer controllers.  So that guarantees no Ape Escape.

 

http://www.ign.com/a...tionality?watch

No online, no post launch additional games.  Again, just like Nintendo's offerings.

 

Again, 20 is just NOT enough for the breadth of content that was on the PS One platform.  I'm almost expecting a second iteration with the PSONE redesign and analog controllers to cover those later games that made hefty use of the analog sticks.  Yes, a LOT of games like MGS or Spyro didn't REQUIRE the analog, but I'd argue that especially Spyro NEEDS those analog controls.  Crash? Not so much.

 

I mean, you want nostalgic games? How about Battle Arena Toshinden?  No, not a great game...but certainly an impactful one in the early days of Playstation.  Deep cuts? What about Omega Boost, Polyphony Digital's nearly forgotten mech shooter?  G-Police was a minor hit, and again, Sony or SquareEnix EACH could fill a Playstation Classic, not even addressing Konami's hits like Suikoden.

Seemingly so.  I mean, it just feels odd to hit NOW, instead of waiting just ONE more year to capitalize on the brand and console's 25th Anniversary, and presumably in the build up for the next Playstation platform.

And again, the limited selection (about ONE PERCENT of the 1700 or so games released) just feels like there's going to be a wide spread dissatisfaction with the device.  No analog controllers means no Ape Escape and a number of other titles are going to be compromised in the control area.  If they hit on the "big titles", you face a situation where many may pass on the device because you can get most of those "big titles" on digital for the PSP, PSVita, or PS3 (which also features the ability to play original disc games to boot).  If you don't hit certain titles or franchises, then people are going to lament those loses.

Well, here's the full list. Yet another release of Final Fantasy VII does not surprise me. Though since I already have so many copies of Final Fantasy VII already both physical and digital, this is not a system seller for me. I also didn't see much else to grab my attention.

Notable "where the hug are these" for me:

Tomb Raider
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Crash Bandicoot
Spyro
Xenogears
SoulBlade

And for those who are even thinking of saying Crash Bandicoot, Castlevania or some other game already had a recent re-release on PS4 with a remaster...*coughFinalFantasyVIIcoughcough*

Yeah, look. I'm not anti-Playstation, mmmkay? I got me a PS3 and PS4...even went back and got me a used PS2. So...I actually kinda wanted to want this. But the game selection has me puzzled and I just can't really get behind this one. Sorry, Sony!

Speaking of, I just loaded up my Xenogears save and have absolutely no hugging clue where I am, what I was doing or even what the controls are. *sigh* Would've been a good time to start a new game on a new system with save-states, Sony!

Yeah, I'm not terribly interested in picking this up. I basically have all the games I'd want on it in some form or the other.

 

Only question I have is: Resident Evil: Director's Cut.

 

Now will this be a straight up port of the PS1 title, or will they ACTUALLY make it a director's cut this time? With all the cut scenes back in? If you can give me that, I just might pick this up if only to finally have the true game in English.

That's a weird selection on a LOT of that stuff.  Glad to see Battle Arena Toshinden, it WAS a major early release.  But there are some MAJOR omissions: No Tomb Raider, Wipeout, Crash, Spyro, Gran Turismo, Silent Hill, Castlevania, or anything else from Square (I was REALLY hoping for Einhander).  And some of the selections are peculiar by ANY stretch.  Mr Driller? Rayman? Persona?

Decent games, but hardly what I call "defining to the platform".

 

 

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal
  • Wild Arms

 

Everything highlighted I can get on the PSN store for one of the devices I own.  Of those I can't, most I can get decent alternatives.  BAT isn't a great game, I have access to FAR better fighters.  Tekken 3 is unfortunate, but there are other Tekken games available.  GTA has some historical significance, but later entries completely overshadowed those old overhead games.  The puzzle games are interesting additions...but hardly system sellers to me.  And truthfully, Persona remains a highly niche title that I don't feel has  place in the western version of this device.  If you wanted niche, Square has better options with more clout.

 

All told, I'm glad I didn't put any money down on this.  While I think this will do well as a nostalgia device...I think there is going to be some widespread disappointment.  I can get most of the good stuff on my devices, and can get a number of superior titles compared to this "classic" device.

So, the Japanese might get a better selection than us.  So, instead of these:

 

  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Syphon Filter
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
  • Twisted Metal

 

The Japanese market is getting these:

 

  • Arc the Lad
  • Arc the Lad 2
  • Armored Core
  • Gradius Gaiden
  • XI [sai]
  • SaGa Frontier
  • G Darius
  • Parasite Eve

 

So...yeah.  I'm not interested in all of the Japanese titles, but a good percentage are stronger than some from the US list.  Rainbow Six, Rayman, and GTA really don't have a place on this selection, IMO.  We should have gotten stuff like Gradius, Armored Core and Arc the Lad instead.

I really can't say that i am that tempted to get this. I mean, I enjoyed Resident Evil and Final Fantasy 7, but those are literally the only games on that list that I have any nostalgia for. A few of the games look neat, but nothing I want to play right now. 

 

I do need to pick a NES and SNES classic still, so I might not be the target audience.

To be fair, the games they could choose were probably limited by the lack of analog sticks...which WAS a really stupid decision on their part, but I guess that probably kept this somewhat affordable.  And Sony doesn't actually OWN any of the games people seem to want (like Castlevania, Crash, and Spyro), so it's not really Sony's fault.  That's kind of the problem with relying so much on third-party support...you don't actually OWN anything that makes you successful down the line.  

 

The first Persona is a welcome surprise, though.  It's probably the shortened and butchered original PS1 version, but it's always nice to have more RPGs on these machines. 

 

But that doesn't make this game lineup any more appealing.  Especially since I could easily see them releasing a different version with analog sticks in the future.  And since most of these games are available on the PS3 if nothing else.  More than half of these games just don't appeal to me.  

 

But I'll defend Rayman's inclusion.  It's a very pretty game for the time period and it's the only platformer on this machine other than Jumping Flash.  Visually, it's probably the game that's aged the best on this list.  Maybe it would've been a better idea to have Legend of Mana on here, knowing the audience, but, again, that wouldn't be Sony's call to make.

I can't help but shake the feeling that this is a feeler from Sony.  It'll sell based on nostalgia...and then next year (for the proper 25th Anniversary) they release a new iteration that has all the stuff we actually wanted.
