Plus PS1 technology is going to be worlds cheaper than current PS3/PS4/XBox 360 + the newer version coming out. All new games cost that much, its a travesty that pisses me off. Thats why i generally wait for it used unless I love tha game. Hell never played on a PS3, about to get the PS4 when i comes out. Also the newer XBOX will have the Connect Module integrated supposedly.
