Greetings Playstation fans,

I noticed Best Buy just opened the floodgates for the Playstation Classic. I've no idea how limited these units will be... heck, we don't even know the full library yet (as only 5 games have been announced thus far)... but might as well pre-order now and you can always cancel prior to the shipping date if you change your mind!

Got one. Thanks.

We'll see if it's any good or not. No AC adapter has a lot of people pissed off though.

yea, the lack of an AC adapter is a nintendo moment. that said, the supplied usb cable will also power the unit should you have a free usb port on your tv/monitor (in which case you will not need an ac adapter). there is also the mysterious bay cover on the back which some people are speculating could be a cartridge slot of some kind to allow for additional games down the line... then again, it could just be cosmetic and serve no other purpose. also, since the controller ports will use a usb connection, it is possible that our dualshock 3/4 controllers will be compatible with the device. we will find out soon enough!

Thanks for the extra information. Definitely helpful for others too I'm sure.

I really hope that these things are mod-able, so that you can add other games. One game I really want to be able to play again is Bloody Roar. This thing would be 100% worth the $150 price point (after tax) if you can add any game you want to it.

No AC adapter + Sony being quiet about the full title list = Me Waiting it Out.

Not putting an AC adapter in there is pure idiocy and I hope they get a lot of returns because of this stupid decision. It's not even like Nintendo saying "just use your old adapter" - sure it's a lame excuse, but there is no "old adapter" in this case. :facepalm:

Actually no, as Nintendo used the excuse of people already owning a 3DS and that they "could just use their old adapter" - how many people other there already own an unreleased PS1 Classic? :rolleyes:

I care a lot more about the wired controllers than a power adapter. Ugh wired controllers :(
Yeah, this is a well-thought-out design all around... if you're an penny-counting executive at Sony who wants another gold back scratcher.

Those Sony bean counters sure are in it for the gamers, huh? :lol:
