The response on social media has been mixed with enthusiasm and disappointment with Sony's selection of games.

That lineup is missing so many key games. Twisted Metal 2, Resident Evil 2 & 3, Gran Turismo 1 or 2, Crash Team Racing, Silent Hill, Dino Crisis 2, Ace Combat 1 & 2, Chrono Cross, Tomb Raider, Legacy of Kain, Tony Hawk (tho music licensing surely is an issue there).
