Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

Something that you could actually run or load an operating system into would be good. ST, Amiga, early PC or Cpm based machines.

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

Surely there is a surplus of old Crt TV screens out there gathering dust in a warehouse somewhere, that are suitable for being convert to vector displays.

We can only hope :mrgreen:


Actually a new Vectrex type consol is about the only one I would pay around a hundred or more £££ for

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I would like it if they surprised us and stuck a couple of never before released games on it. Like 'Thrill kill'? ... i am going to respond with the rest by asking you all if you would also welcome a PS2 Classic in the future... My answer would be exactly the same as for the PlayStation/PS1. I stil...

Re: What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

... it's not really the sort of system that you could make much smaller and cheaper these days... True, and there wouldn't be any point without the vector graphics screen. But how good would it be to have a vectrex-alike that had all the release games, the best and rarest of the homebrew, and the a...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I did feel a little bit like that as well with the PlayStation, but strangely not with the Dreamcast, which was a whole generation younger?!

Re: Backwards Compatability

Don't get me wrong.I do see the point of the online-store based option. And do have some games for older systems, that I've bought this way. But is it really a 'compatible' system? I'd say my original 60Gb PS3 was (more or less) compatable with my PS2, e.g. I could put PS2 or PlayStation games in th...

Re: Backwards Compatability

IMO it isn't backwards comparability unless you can stick the real media from the older console in and play it.
Buy-it-from-an-online-store backwards compatibility isn't compatibility at all,it's buy-it-from-an-online store!

Re: Most wanted unreleased games?

I would have really liked to see the original concept (real) build of Spore made, instead of the nonsense EA made it into.
That, and any of the dropped Legacy of Kane games.

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I probably still prefer older-style game-play, but some people wrote off the PlayStation to quickly IMO. Saga_MegaDive - Did you try games like, Wild Nine, Heart of Darkness, abe's oddysee/exoddus, or on import Umihara Kawase Shun for 2D - 2.5D platformers and still not like them? Or if you like SHM...

What System would you like a 'Classic' console for?

So we have got the Vega, and now a PlayStation, and various other Sega, Nintendo, and Atari (amongst others) 'Classic' systems bundles with X number of bundled games out there. But what systems would you like to see done? I'd love to see ether a Vecterx one with a proper vector screen, or a Japanese...

Re: Home Brew Section

I'm a but confused as to what the argument is here?! I haven't had anything on steam, but did have a game on Desura for a while. I've also got a few Vectrex games out on multi-carts. All were written as a pastime on the same machine. So does that mean the Desure game is 'Indie' and the Vectrex ones ...
