    Charging issue and short controller cords

    Brings back good memories, but It doesn't come with a charging transformer for the USB power cord (can be bought separately). Luckily I had a USB outlet on my surge protector. Lessons not learned from NES classic release about short cables for the controllers.

    The problem with this is one the short wires for the controllers and the lack of games that are actually on it.

    Unfortunately, Sony fell short on this one. I still bought it, just to keep it as a collector's item. You can play these games emulated better elsewhere.

    Overpriced

    Overpriced, no AC adaptor, and a poor line up of games: 4-5 worth playing. Short cables--it's like they didn't pay attention with the Nintendo releases. Sony tried to jump on the bandwagon of tiny retro consoles, but didn't try to make this worth the cost.

    Fine but not the greatest retro

    It's a fine if you got it at $59.99 and not $99.99. On top of that, what's up with not supplying an usb ac adapter? The Sony retro system will be short lived with the failure of this system. Don't expect a PS2 retro out of Sony.

    Not as cool as other Mini Systems

    This makes an attempt to allow gamers to relive the classic PS1, unfortunately it falls short with a strange game line up, and subpar emulation. Most of the games included are from the PAL territory and will run 20% slower than the USA versions that they should of used. Sony moves forward and not backwards, therefore do not care about their legacy. The mediocrity of this system is proof of that.

    This was Sonys attempt at a classic console. It looks really cool but unfortunately it doesn't play as well as it looks. Controllers are good. Unless you want the look of the console I would recomend a raspberry pi.

    Great Nostalgia product. Review are not great on certain aspects. Cord length not great. Great nostlagia games for me is FFVII, Metal Gear Solid and Twisted Metal. Apparently easily hackable to put more games

    I originally preordered the PS Classic, but cancelled it based on the the variety and quantity of different negative reviews. It had a few games I was interested in playing again, but wasn't willing to drop a $100 on a classic system. I picked it up after the price drop and while there are only a few games I really play it is worth the money if primarily for the nostalgia factor. Take note that there are still frame rate issues and many of the games have not aged well. Also, the controller cord is too short! What is it with these classic systems?
