This game has regional differences.
|This page sucks.|
If you could make it suck less, that would be awesome.
Specifically: Barely anything here not already officially documented and known.
The game list resulted in some backlash due to not including several of the PS1's heavy-hitters (although exploits were later discovered that allowed addition of your own games); the controllers are the original iteration released for the system, not including the analog sticks that PlayStation-series controllers have had ever since (which may explain the game selection); several games use their PAL versions even on NTSC consoles (see below); the hardware isn't as good as the SNES Classic, resulting in Nintendo's effort actually being better at running PS1 games if modified; and Sony caught some flak for using an open-source PS1 emulator (although they were at least honest about it by crediting the developers).
Eight titles are exclusive to the Japanese release, while nine are only present in other releases.
Exclusive to the international versions:
- Cool Boarders 2
- Destruction Derby
- Grand Theft Auto
- Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
- Revelations: Persona
- Syphon Filter
- Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
- Twisted Metal
Exclusive to the Japanese version:
Battle Arena Toshiden, Cool Boarders 2, Destruction Derby, Jumping Flash!, Resident Evil: Director's Cut, Tekken 3, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six use their PAL versions in all regions. This is believed to be so the system could be sold in Quebec, which requires the French version of a video game be included if it exists, as this had previously blocked sale of the SNES Classic.
