Sometimes it’s the things you unexpectedly find that brighten your day. Like finding money you’d completely forgotten about in a pair of pants. Or suddenly realizing that yesterday’s 2.10 update lets you remote play any PS1 game.
Few words describe exactly how incredibly awesome this feature is.
Being able to access hundreds of PS1 classics from anywhere in the world, and play them at a whim, is probably the new best reason to get a PS3/PSP combo. I’m personally ecstatic about this feature. There are countless PS1 games that I never got around to playing, and countless more I’d love to revisit. Being able to do so from literally anywhere in the world, from any wi-fi spot, is unprecedented.
Xbox originals are 15 bucks each, run with glitches, are tied to the xbox you purchased it on (meaning you’ll lose it when it breaks) and will most likely require the 180 dollar hard drive if you want to download more than two. These PS1 games are 5-6 bucks each, run better than ever before thanks to smoothers, and are playable on your PSP via memory stick or remote play.
I’m clearly excited about this. After being screwed over so many times by my 360, it’s nice to see that someone out there cares.
