    Was not impressed with the game quality, the loading times, and I do wish this game system had updated features. Some nostalgia, but could have been much better.

    The build quality is good, the game selection is just ok. The software and features are severely lacking compared to its main competitor. It could have been great. The PlayStation classic is what happens when you don't care about the quality of the device you are putting out. Maybe someday Sony will actually put there heart into one of these classic systems and we will get a amazing system.

    Rushed out the door to back on nostalgia

    As a PlayStation owner of all their devices, the Classic was going to be an awesome addition, maybe even replace my original PS1 - sadly it was rushed out the door in a very poor state. While the SNES Classic and NES Classic were not completely perfect, they worked well enough for all to enjoy with features a plenty and a library that defined the platform - the PS1 Classic was the complete opposite. With a selection of games that were only half good on the PS1 Classic, too many factors brought even those in question. Some PS1 titles were European versions that run badly and the emulation used for all titles made everything run even worse. The features available are lackluster and the only thing that saves this device is the hacking community but the initial purchase price is too much right now. $100, no. $60, no. $20 - $40 - it's the only time you should even contemplate picking this up. I returned mine after watching Digital Foundry's video review and other PS1 Classic reviews - this device is just not up to snuff and rushed to market to meet Christmas buyers not aware.
