Magnet for the Mediocre

  • Excerpt: "...for who can say if Sony backed out when Nintendo did(the PSX was originally a project between Nintendo and Sony before old Ninty decided it wanted to stick to cartridges) would we have a new set of next generation consoles? Would some companies even still be in business? I have a lot to thank the PSX, but one of those things is not for hours of enjoyable game play. ...
  • Pros: perfect for the casual gamer, who only expects to spend a few sessions a month on it
  • Cons: masses of unoriginal, mediocre games, poor control pad, most games can only deliver average graphics

  • Excerpt: "...nice indeed, it's clear why sony have decided too keep them, they are great for everyhthing but beat em ups, especially 2d ones. They are awful for that purpose, but you can't have everything I guess, best pads ever were most likly the snes ones or the jap style saturn pads. well there you go, go buy one its cheap ...

  • Excerpt: "The Sony Playstation the old type is now available at great prices and you can also even get the chipped ones because. Now that the Playstaion 2 has come out the demand is less for the playstaion 1 is cheaper in price. The Playstation 1 is great because it can be chipped and then you can get copied games for 2 quid or so. Also there is such a wide range of games theres some thing for everybody to play.

  • Excerpt: "I know that many people will probably take great offence with what i am about to say ( most of the playstations owners ) but i really have no idea why so many people rant and rave about the plastic box of tricks. Ok if you are on a small budget or maybe its for the kids for christmas and you have no real interest in games then the playstation is for you, any other situation and i really cant see how any real game player can consider buying one of ...

  • Excerpt: "The first PSX I ever had was a reliability nightmare. Overheating after about half an hour and always being a bit naff at reading CDs. This was replaced with a later model that was fine. Games wise I find most PSX games are truly terrible but there is enough great games for the system too. Many games like MGS I found well over-rated. I tend to like FPS like Doom and Quake most plus 3D space games. The PSX is very poor for FPS, there's a good port ...
  • Pros: Fantastic support
  • Cons: its a bit naff really and can't do justice to a lot of games

  • Excerpt: "The PSX has never attracted me. It's games with poor graphics and little realism, its box-like shape and its rediculous expensive turned me towards the good-old practicle PC. As well as playing the best games available on the PC, you can also do your homeowkr and surf the net. The only exception to this rule is the Gran Tourismo series which disappointingly never game out on the PC. But Microprose's Grand Prix series has never appeared in stores for ...
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: Poor games with horrific graphics, poor gameplay, limited fun factor, short - lived

  • Excerpt: "At first very impressive, A Bug's Life is a fully 3D platform game based on the Disney movie. Unfortunately, gameplay is not as fun or addictive as most games of this genre. The graphics are quite nice, and scenes from the movie are included. The game can be very difficult at times, and getting free lives a seemingly impossible task. Truth of the matter is, I played it for awhile but I don't really have a huge desire to go back to it. I prefer my ...
