    As an avid collector and retro gamer, I own quite a few of these mini consoles. Sony's was probably the most rushed and half completed of them all. You don't see the same care and detail put into the product that you see with Nintendo's offerings or even the Sega one. Decent collection of games but it could've been much better considering the PS1's library of games. If you can get it on sale, it's nice addition to any collectors library as the physical look of the console is well done. Would just like to have seen better games, better emulation and a little more 'love' put into the project.

    Nice retro trip, could have been better

    For what it is this retro console is solid although not worth the full price. The games on it are half of the better games I would expect and then the rest are sort of a slog of exclusives that no one really wanted. Assuming you are excited to play at least some of the included games then this gets the job done just fine. It was a miss in terms of not having more of the iconic games fans would have wanted and the controller not having dual analog sticks is shocking and affects some of these games which used to require having the original dual analog controller. Having a better overall game selection and actual analog sticks would have made this a 5 star purchase for sure.

    I'm reviewing this solely as the product that it was sold as, without any modifications that's readily available on the internet. Starting with the good parts: For the price, it's a nice retro console and probably the cheapest at this point, thanks to all of the things it lacks, which drove the price to what it is today. It comes with nice solid controllers, albeit, no analog sticks like the original PS1. It's pretty easy to boot up and play. USB port for controllers is very nice in that you can probably hookup any other USB gaming controller and play, plus you can extend the short controller using a USB extension cable. Half the games are good solid games. The bad: Why doesn't it come with a power brick? It's really not that expensive and with the original asking price, I can't understand why they didn't include one. The controllers are very short. Some games are pretty bad. PAL 50fps conversion was a horrible idea. For the original price, it really doesn't come with enough games. For the price that was paid, not too bad. Overall it was a good purchase, at the current price, but if Sony decides to do something similar with PS2, please take note of all of the feedback that buyers are giving you and use them.

    Unless you're going to hack it, don't waste your time. It's a great emulation machine but unless you want to take the time to hack it to play whatever you want, it isn't really worth it. It's a little sad that using hacks you can get better performance than the out of the box performance. Also, some of the games are the European versions and don't run at 60fps.

    Cons: Sony did a terrible job implementing this user interface, the SONY logo has to play before every game load (irritating). I don't mind the game selection screen, I'm not very picky. The game choices are the problem. They could have at least put some fun MEMORABLE games on here. The ones they chose did NOT age well at all. Pros: Metal Gear is by far the best game on here. They also included TWO controllers. I love how light the system is, and easy to take on the go. I got mine very very cheap from Best Buy, so I feel like I got my money's worth.

    Old School Games

    I like the idea of putting a bunch of 'old school' games into 1 system. However, the quality of the graphic is not great. It's better to play with smaller display than the big screen TVs. Most of these games weren't made for the big screen at the time. If you have a small TV set at home (32") good to have this to play those classic games.

    Great Little System on Sale

    I grabbed a couple of these on sale for $20. It's well worth that price, but I wouldn't pay the original price when they were first released. I was never a huge fan of the earlier PS systems, but this is a nice system to round out my collection of similar retro consoles by Nintendo, Sega, and Atari. Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy IV are the highlights. The interface is friendly and the emulation seems to work well.

    What better way to relive your childhood than the PS1? Graphics are as expected— same as when they came out. Pretty disappointed with the selection of games. With the current selection I’d give it a 3 star rating because there are only a few I used to play and we had TONs I’d PS1 games. However, these are made so you can add games to a USB. Once you add the games you “already own ;)” from a USB drive... that may or may not have been bought online... it’s awesome. You “may” be able to fine USB drives online with 50-100 of your favorite titles. The additional titles you can “find” makes it a 5 star. So, overall it’s a 4.

    If you can find one for the clearance price then it’s a fun nostalgic trip back to over 20 years ago. It plays pretty good, they’re not the proper American releases which means they have black borders but they’re still playable.

    Excellent bit of nostalgia for original PS1 owners

    This item is mostly for those who owned the original Playstation One back during its original release. The graphics and framerates are rough for those who never played the games in their original condition, however for those who want a trip down memory lane this is a great nostalgic console! I do wish there was an option to pay for additional games as the list is hit or miss based on your personal interests. For example I am a big JRPG fan and while they have Final Fantasy VII and Wild Arms, they are missing a lot of other PS1 classics such as Xenogears, Suikoden 1 and 2, Final Fantasy VIII and XI, The Legend of Dragoon, etc.

    This is a great console with a few good select games. I do, however, wish there was either a different selection, or a way to maybe update the system to get new games. Out of the 20 games on there, we may have played 6 or 7 of the games. There are other systems of the same type that are less expensive that come with more games. I do however love the nostalgia and they kept the games the same.

    I waited for the price to drop before picking one up. I have fond memories of gaming on my original playstation years ago. This is a sharp little novelty product. It is easy plug and play, the real issue is the lack of games, and the ones included are very hit or miss on if they were worthy of being part of the library. there are ways to make this a more immersive experience and to grow the library leaps and bounds. worth a purchase at the lower price point, and fun enough to tinker with if you want to make it more a 'pi' like device.

    Sadly Sony didn't care about preserving their legacy through one of these classic systems. This is barely a step above those generic "Retro Console" sold at Wallmart/ Target, whatever. But on the other hand the comunity have come to the rescue and with a little soft modding you can turn this into the ultimate PS1 classic. Same idea as the NES/SNES classic. Thanks to the community you can played most games without having to hack the system itself if you want. You can even play with the PS4 controller as well. My advice is to get it if you are planning on going all the way and modding the thing, if you are on the fence get it for half the price and enjoy some of the games in here. But if you are just curious then stay far away from this and get yourself a RetroPie or emulate it on you PC.

    I hesitated buying this console when it was first released based on the initial reviews. At the $30 price tag, though, I feel that alone is worth the price of metal gear solid and few other games while still having the console for nostalgia purposes. It's not perfect and there are graphic issues but you can't go wrong with the discounted price.

    It’s terrible for the included games, but if you replace the firmware and load in retroarch, you can emulate almost all 8 and 16 bit systems. Plus PSP and obviously PlayStation. So it becomes awesome after you do that, but you must be very technically inclined to know how to do all that.

    Out of the box the PS Classic leaves a lot a to be desired unfortunately...when you compare this to any of the previous mini units from Nintendo or the more recent Sega Genesis mini it is quite a disappointment with some glaring omissions. However this unit can be modded to add emulation capabilities which adds a ton to the value of this little device. But again if you are just trying to buy this as a pick up and play without any additional modifications I really cannot recommend.

    I mainly purchased this to add to my collection of retro game consoles. I really like how it looks and that’s the reason why I gave it 4 stars. I have to admit the games that are included aren’t so great. Everyone knows the PS had way better games than the ones included. But for $19.99 I decided that was a good price for collection purposes. If it had 30 games like the NES Classic including some of their best games like crash or spyro, then I would have given it 5 stars but that’s not the case unfortunately.

    PlayStation Nostalgia

    Posted .

    I'm a sucker for the 'classic' retro gaming systems like this, and aesthetically, this lives up to everything you'd want out of the PlayStation classic. The only thing I'd mention is that the game selection could have been better and more 'classic'. It's a daunting task to select just a few but some of the choices Sony made are a bit questionable. Still, a great classic system!
