    The Vita TV was also $100 when it launched. That thing can play PS1, PSP, and PS Vita games.

    $100 is a bit too much for this. If it was closer to $50, I think they could sell a ridiculous amount.

    just a usb cable? not a charger? do they expect you to power it via a phone charger you already have? if so, can't wait for all the people frying their psx classic with samsung quick chargers, just like their dual shock 4's.

    I said much the same about nes classics at $60, and it wasn't until the next august I ever saw any of those in the wild. *shrug* I've just stuck with my retro pi.

    AtGames Genesis/Megadrive were not reissues of the original design. Just like Game &Watch mini classics from 1998 if you will.

    so the game retail cycle basically goes. port old games to new console, remaster ported games in hd to newer console, repackage old games in "retro" package

    I mean if we wanna go that route, Remote Play between the PSP and PS3 accomplishes exactly that in 2006, 6 years before the Wii U even came out.

    Sigh, I just want to play ps1 games on ps4 with HD support (like ps2 games on ps4) is that too much to ask?

    Also apparently castlevania symphony of the night might come to ps4. At this point all I need is:

    -Brave fencer Musashi
    -Ape Escape
    -Toomba
    -Wild Arms
    -Klonoa

    And I am good

    Sorta but I meant more like a secondary screen like using it as a map and such. But ey you found something Sony did entirely new wich was my original question and that is remote play. Forgot about that so glad that somebody could answer my question

    I think the PS1 controller was also the first one with actual handles. Pretty much everybody copied that afterwards.

    n64 controller had 3 handles wich no human can gab all at once :P it was i think a mix of a joystick and a snes controller, whatever it was it was an abomination :P

    Yeah, that's true, I guess that one brought handles galore... but it came later.

    Me too and if it doesn't then that's ok. Someone might hack it and Mega Man 8 can be playable! :)

    My first console that was mine exclusively. I'll probably pick one up after they're out for a while, assuming they don't make the mistake of making this a limited edition release.
