Talking to Mantan Web, Kodera was requested if there have been plans to make a PS1 Traditional, to which he replied “There may be nothing we will speak about in the mean time.” Which admittedly sounds a good quantity like a no, however then he follows up with:
“Our firm is at all times digging up previous property. I believe there are numerous methods to do [a classic console]. There have been discussions occurring [within the company] on what sort of methods are there.”
Going again to its roots
It’s nonetheless potential that he’s simply speaking about different earlier property, and the way to hold the spirit of the PS1 alive, like with remastered editions of good PS1 video games like Spyro.
It might make sense as a transfer although, particularly with the contradictory information popping out that Sony thinks the PS4 is reaching the end of its life cycle, whereas the PS5 is probably three years away.
There’s a confirmed monitor file of (fairly overwhelming) success with miniaturised, simplified variations of traditional consoles, with Nintendo’s NES Mini and SNES Mini promoting extraordinarily effectively. Maybe a Sony traditional would fill the console formed hole that the subsequent three years might be leaving us with.
With a back-catalogue of video games like Crash Bandicoot (which has not too long ago been remastered), Tomb Raider (not too long ago rebooted), Spyro (noticing a sample right here?), and Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, ooh, and PaRappa the Rapper, oh yeah, and Tekken 3, oh, and Oddworld. Neglect the purpose we had been making. Deliver it again, convey it now.
