Well this thing apparently has crappy emulation. Hard pass!
I still have a PS1 disc-playing PS3 hooked up to my TV anyway (and don't feel the need to play PS1 games).

It's made by Sony specifically to play specific Playstation games only and its emulation is bad? This isn't like backwards compatibility on another console. It's nothing short of pathetic.

It does sound like some phoned-in garbage on Sony’s part.

The product is both a throwback to 1990s Sony for the games and 2G6 Sony for general crappiness

PS3 was the weakest console in Sony's history. Sorry.

You’re just mad because that was a weak time for Final Fantasy.

If it was just FF, PS4 wouldn't be doing much better.

Is PS4 better? (Other than “time has passed so the technology is better”.) I honestly don’t know.

I don't actually care that much about graphical improvements and stuff like that. It has better games though.

But PS3 had LittleBigPlanet, Uncharted, MGS4, Journey, Ratchet & Clank Tools of Destruction, Last of Us (ok never actually played it), Burnout Paradise, Bionic Commando Rearmed, the PixelJunk games, Ni No Kuni, Warhawk, MotorStorm, and, you know, et cetera.

PS4 had Uncharted 4, which was better than the early Uncharted games. Ratchet and Clank was better on PS2 anyway. LittleBigPlanet is meh. Journey....meh. MGS4 was good but the gameplay wasn't as great. MGS5 was better. Ni No Kuni 2 was definitely better than the first, which I couldn't get into. A lot of those titles might as well be gibberish to me. I'll give you the Last of Us" but I'm not saying PS3 had no great games. I'm saying it had the least.

LittleBigPlanet and Journey were da bomb.

If only FFXII were PS3 it’d be the greatest console of all time. Mr. Green

My PS3 is pretty much just a DVD/Blu-Ray/mp4/Netflix player these days.

I still prefer buying physical copies of games whenever possible too.

PS3 was great, but I was split two ways that gen with as much time spent on the 360 as the PS3. My PS3 is now mainly a SingStar machine.

All XBoxes are bad, so that just goes to show that the PS3 was underperforming.

Xbox reached next gen a year before PlayStation, so the 360 had already found its feet while the PS3 was struggling to work out what it was.

I didn't expect to like the 360 after ridiculing the original Xbox, but Gears of War, Viva Pinata and Dead Rising were all very good early releases.

The original (and only properly good) Dead Rising came out on the 360 in 2006 and didn't release on a Sony console until the PS4 in 2016. By that point, it was old news and the series had been tarnished by shoddy sequels. Dead Rising 2 was multi-platform in 2010, but was a total letdown.

Oh dear. This is already half price here. Terrible reviews from people who regret buying one. I think it'd only be worthwhile as an ornament. Perhaps something for display in my future gaming room once it hits the £20 mark...

Same. I wish younger me hadn't traded it in. That would be a fun one to play through again today.

I remember I had a really hard tike with the final boss to the point that I had put it away and didn't beat it until many years later. Still several years ago now but maybe like 10 after it originally came out.

The annoying thing which kept me from finishing sooner is that if you die on the final boss there's a bunch of stuff you have to redo. There's a boss before it that you have to beat again, then two chase sequences, plus the final boss has two forms.
