Would the Xbox be considered Classic Gaming?

I don't think so, because the 360 is next gen, and the Xbox is current gen. To be classic it should be one or two generations behind.

Playstation One to me is still pretty iffy for classic gaming (same with Saturn), a few more years under it's belt, it will be , same with the Dreamcast, PS 2, and X-Box, though that's still long enough down the road not to be classic yet.

Nah, PS1 and Saturn are definately classic. Basically, if games are still coming out for it, it's modern.

Well, then...the Sega Genesis could be considered modern by that statement. It had a game or two come out for it about 3-5 months ago. Just kidding, but I agree. PS1 and Saturn are classic. In my opinion, the only modern systems are XBox, GC, PS2, XBox 360, PS3, and Wii. DSLite and PSP could be considered modern, but whatever.

Exactly, current and next generation consoles.

EDIT: Oh, and GBA, you left that one out.

((EDIT:: UBER bump...O_o...sorry about that. I forget to pay attention to the dates on these threads. I just see something interesting and go ahead and post.))

PS1...classic? Xbox even?! O_o

Might be just me, but when I hear the word "classic" when talking about gaming...I automatically think of NES, SNES, them sega systems...hell, freaking Atari!

N64...PS1...maybe even Dreamcast, as much as it supposedly "sucks" (I've only played two games for it though and I happened to like those games, so my opinion of the Dreamcast doesn't really count anyway), couldn't be considered classic...I remember when they all came out brand new and were like the "thing" to own...I'd rather not feel that old yet. :p

Dreamcast is the best ever, and everyone that says otherwise is a pansy...

I don't think I need to provide justifications for this argument... Everyone agrees already.

Pretty much.

I still need to find Power Stone 2, though. And I thought the first one rocked, everyone says 2 is even better.

Thanks for the bump though, Katie... I wouldn't have thought to follow this up if you hadn't...

So! Now that ALL THREE next gens are out... are all other games now classic?

Same points stand, no matter the console.

I agree with everyone who doesn't think games from the PS1 era and on aren't classic. Again, I don't want to feel that old. Teehee.

I know they don't make games for the PS1 anymore...but what pisses me off is that they're so difficult to find now! **cries** On both Final Fantasy VII AND Final Fantasy VIII, my disk 3 is broken.

Your best bet is collectibles stores, if you have any around your area? (I'm sure).

I go to a place called Vintage Stock to get most of my older games. Pretty cheap too, usually ...

Anyways, yes. As others have already stated, Classic Gaming = PSX, N64, Saturn, etc at the -latest-. GC, PS2, and Xbox are still fine for Modern Gaming.

Most PSX games I'll see range from $10-$20 (that's stretching it) for quality titles and stuff.

Though the rare stuff (like RPG's), seem to start out at $30, cheapest. Sometimes.

It just depends on how easy the games are to find I guess.

I really can't say.

It depends on stores. There's quite a few local-only game stores around here, then collectibles stores, and then the usual Gamestop / EB Games and stuff. But no matter what, there always seems to be a price difference on some games here and there. And sometimes its drastic.

Honestly though, I wouldn't think FF games would be that much. Since most of them became a Greatest Hits, and there's been so many of them produced. You could even check SquareEnix's online store and see if they sell them online? I know they still sell Xenogears for only $20, brand new.

And sometimes, amazon.com actually has good prices on hard to find games.

I'd say if you pay more than $30 for FFVII, VIII, or IX, it'd be a little crazy.
