The PlayStation mini was released by Sony with a bunch of games.

Silent Hill was not one of them, but was included in a list of possibilities, but it seems that it along with several other games didn't make the cut for some reason.

Some data was found in the PS Classic itself that Sony was testing it.

The classic console is a disgrace.

Lame. This could have been way better in so many ways.

Not especially convinced they'd fix the glitchy nature of the SH1 digital release anyways.

Fuckin love ear-piercing random ass max volume noise when I shoot a gun.

In another oddity, it seems the PS4 Medevil remake has a somewhat functional PSOne emulator. Here's a hack playing Silent Hill.

Good thing my original PS is still working so I don't need to mess with emulation if I want to play it again

It deserved a place and would have improved the console. I also would have preferred the original release of Resident Evil over the director's cut.

Is the director's cut of RE1 the one with that hilariously awful basement music?

Yeah the director's cut is the version with the basement theme being comprised of a bunch of trumpets playing together off key sounding like it was composed on the fly. I find it hilarious and have no idea why they didn't just reuse the original.

There was a really bizarre controversy with the original RE1 music composer. Turned out he was a complete fraud and he hired someone else to make the music. I'm assuming that's why hah.

Wow, I've never heard about this until now. I know he was losing his hearing and people joked about that being why the basement theme was so terrible, but I didn't know he hired others to make music.

Yeah, it's quite the betrayal.

Imagine finding out Yamaoka did this with Silent Hill 1 and 2? I'd be pissed.

Then the music in SH1 and 2 gets replaced by pinball and pachinko music. Hell yeah.
