Whatever succeeds for Nintendo will have a Sony variation two years later.

Honestly, Nintendo's been late to the party. They've been selling Genesis and Atari Flashback type consoles for years.

Who cares who did it first and that other companies want to try doing the same thing for their past consoles?

As for this PS1 classic... well I didn't grow up with the console and only played it on emulators some years ago, so this console means nothing to me. I also did not care for the Mini NES, Mini SNES and the Mega Drive clones since I own or have played most of the games they offer, so I'm certainly not gonna get a PS1 Classic, a console whose games are from the early 3D days that have aged horribly graphics wise and have better sequels and possibly remakes out there.

It's cool to have these sort of novelty items around for people who want to play these consoles for the first time after all these years, though.

Baffling to me. If the idea is retro gaming... you can go on eBay right now and buy an actual Playstation 1 for $100. If the idea is FAKE retro gaming... why not just do emulation?

Well for one thing, this console won't be used but brand new and despite costing 100 dollars it will include 25 PS1 classics, unlike a PS1 on ebay where the system only itself would cost just as much.

A lot of people prefer to own something and paying for it than simply pirating. Everyone pirates to some degree, but surely you enjoy more stuff you actually paid for with your hard earned money than stuff you just pirated and downloaded in a few minutes?
