    Sony PlayStation Classic

    The first thing I noticed was how much thought only put into the packaging. Sony presented this system as its own console with traditional two box packaging (internal box and outer display box) with exposed serial number. Complete with an instruction manual, necessary cables (HDMI and Power) and two controllers, I felt as if I was really unboxing a quality, independent console. The hardware is simple, impressive and makes sense. The two included Sony USB controllers are of quality. The console itself is very small and light. Set up was fast and simple. Sony created this console with a user dashboard which makes game selection and setting up your internal memory cards easy. I believe that the included games will either make or break this purchase for the individual buyer. For me personally this purchase was worth it due to the fact that I think that metal gear solid, final fantasy 7, Tekken 3, Syphon Filter and resident evil were some of the greatest games of this generation. Sure it would’ve been nice if Resident Evil 2, Mortal Kombat 4, Grand Turismo and Digimon World and Armored Core were included, but that’s just me. Best Buy had slashed the price of these consoles to $40 each. I bought two.

    Whether you should get this really depends on how much the price tag is at the time. I wouldn't have recommended this at its original price of 100 dollars. I bought it in a flash sale of 30 dollars and don't regret it. It's the perfect gift for anyone that never got to chance to play the original PlayStation or anyone wanting to remember the glory days 3d Gaming. That's also the double edge sword, it's not as pretty as you remember it lol. Also, the games that are included are kind of strange. You have classics like Tekken 3 and metal gear solid and then games I have never even heard of like jumping flash . They definitely could have done a better job with the lineup, too missing classics. it also comes with two controllers so that's great, too bad the length of the cords makes you play on the floor.

    Worth the new price

    |
    Posted .

    I originally pre-ordered this system, never opened it, watched the initial reviews and honestly returned it (unopened) seeing the price was going to drop eventually. Its a 3 star product at $99. The recent price drop to $59 is why I gave it a 4 star. now onto the device, super happy with the platform, its OPEN system OS allows for expansion and already people have hacked the system to play games off a USB. Out of the box, this is great for kids and a flash back on when the PS was a big hit. I already have the NES and SNES that I play with my kids, this one will be re-purchased at the lower price point to enjoy with the kids and my child hood games. reason for no 5 stars is lack of AC plug (not that we need it, plenty of us all have them, or plug the USB into side of TV like I do with NES and SNES, but still include the $5 item), and there are numerous games not included in the release of the system. (Crash bandicoot, Gran Turismo, Parappa the Rapper, etc) I wanted more games on it. overall I think its a solid 3.5/5 stars. Recommend for anyone who wants a flashback game night, something for the kids to play with/family game night, or a game collector.

    Gives a RasPi a Run for Its Money!!! Convenient!!!

    |
    Posted .

    Ll Who’d’a thunk it? The PSC has become, by far, the most powerful single board computer, for the money. Whether $20 (I got it for that, on sale) or $40, and despite not aiming for Wi-Fi Internet or Bluetooth, at all you only simply $1 or $2, apiece, the games, alone, are worth the price of admission — especially given the games you get. The lineup COULD be better, but you can’t please everyone, with a set of ROMs with fewer than a hundred games, really. Throw in a beautiful set of Sony’s OG, PS1, D-pad controller’s with USB connectors and hand grips, and, even without analog sticks (which was originally the case, with the first PS1s) you have a perfect set of PC controllers, for retro gaming, to kill time, taking a quick break, from working, on a desktop or lap, too. Otherwise, I’d suggest getting a pair of 8bitdo Bluetooth receivers for those who can keep track of them. Those receivers can be bought, here, and I got two, on Lightning Deals, for $13/ea. However, that’s not with controllers, but I can use whatever BT controllers I want (I use PS3s or 4s, but my bud has and likes X-styled ones, which are no problem, either, minus their integrity). Seriously, though. Check out some stuff , on YouTube, and as much as is being done, with the PSClassic, to modify it, with software (see page 3 of the manual, for “authorization to modify,*” YOUR PSC), it has become an UNMATCHED deal, at $20, for an SBC (Single Board Computer). As compared to a Raspberry Pi 3B+, a very popular SBC, for emulating old games and can’t run the ($35, for computer board, alone, with easily another $20 - $60 of accessories, to put it in a case and get it running... The PSClassic** has a 1.5ghz processor with 1GB DDR3 (faster than DDR2) RAM and a 16GB Solid State-type flash storage memory, as compared to the RPI 3B+’s 1.4ghz processor. *NOTE; Many states in the US have already adopted “right to repair laws,” so,that one can modify one’s OWNED equipment, as one see fit, or one can take the machine to a local repair shop (kinda useless, at $20, but... ) to have it fixed. If you’d like to be able to fix (or to have fixed, without going to the company (to pay $$$$$$ for, perhaps, the same thing...) please do what you can, to help get “right to repair “ laws passed, in your states, or across the country, through local represent. ** The PSClassic needs a USB outlet or adapter, whether a USB wall socket or a USB port, on your TV, that is 5 Watts, @ 1AMP of electricity/resistance (most TV USB ports, especially recently, could most conveniently supply that, through the included USB power cable) supply that amount, and an Amazon FireTV or an average Android Phone comes with that kind of “standard” power (an iPhone/iPad adapter has over 2AMPs, and so check to make sure you can use one of those, safely, with a PSClassic), to power it. It comes with the power *cable* to plug. My total cost, for a Raspberry Pi 3B+ cost about $65 - $70, for a case, cables, microSD card (storage), and power cable/adapter. An NES Classic costs about $75, with included case and cables, a 1.2GHz processor on the SBC, 256MB (PSC = 1GB (4X) of DDR3 on-board memory, and 512MB (PSC = 16GB (32X)) of Solid State NAND Flash (Storage).*** *** These a basic specs for the various machines, to illustrate their relative capabilities, for the money. When setting up the machines, for your needs, to put it bluntly, there’s a LOT more room to Bleem it out. In turn, that means there are a lot more resources (including speed) available, on the PSClassic, to run more and bigger games — as compared to the other two listed, for a price as low as 1/2 or 1/3 the price...

    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.

    Worth the $30

    If it bought this at launch for the $100 I would have felt disappointed but on sale for $30 is well worth this purchase. Look and the list of games and make the decision if there is games you want to replay or like me missed the first time around and want a chance to play some PS classics. The drawbacks is the lack of USB plug that is not supplied, you get a USB cable and HDMI cable but no outlet plug so you need to use one of you own. If your anything like me you likely have one or two laying around but if not its another purchase. Another drawback is the length of controller cable. 6ft was fine back in the day when I would sit in front of a 12" inch TV (how far we have come) but in this day in age sitting that close to a 65" TV just doesn't work so some cable extenders are also a must. Despite its drawbacks I am still happy with the purchase.

    It is a good mini PlayStation. Just wish it had a better selection of games. Sure metal gear and final fantasy are top tier but there are some I never heard of and after playing them I know why. And I don’t like that they used the first gen controller with no analog sticks.

    Not worth $30

    Owned for 2 weeks when reviewed.

    I can't believe Sony originally wanted $100 for this thing, the games just run really bad, there is no other way to describe it. I understand these are late 90's 3D graphics which I can deal with but the games just generally run slower and the controls appear to have input lag. I know there is a big mod scene with this system that makes it much better but some of us just want the system to work well out of the box without having to invest additional time into it. Also not packaging the system with a USB adapter is inexcusable, I tried plugging it into the USB port on my TV and Cable Box and still couldn't get it to power on, an iPhone charging block finally did the trick. That being said the system itself is built well, the controllers also feel solid even if they're lacking the analog sticks. In the end I'll keep it because it looks neat on my shelf and $30 isn't that much but if I ever want to play the games on it I'll need to look elsewhere.

    Rushed out the door to back on nostalgia

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Not bad for $20

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    Compared to the other mini classic consoles, this was a perfunctory effort by Sony. For starters, DualShocks aren't even used and the cables are rather short. For the games themselves, the PAL version is used for some games like Tekken 3 so the game runs slower and not at 60 fps. Emulation wise, the console runs the open source emulator, PCSX ReARMed. So why the four stars? If you're willing to mod the console (rather simple), it has a lot of potential as an emulation machine. All you need is a USB flash drive (2.0 is better) and you can find instructions on the Internet on how to easily add more games as well as give you the option to use other controllers. So for $20 if you're willing to mod the console a bit, it definitely becomes worth it.

    Flashback to the 90s

    |
    Posted .

    I’m a 90s kid through and through and when I saw the PlayStation Classic I was hit with a massive wave of nostalgia. I was disappointed when the reviews said it didn’t live up to the hype but when the price dropped from 100 to 60 I had no qualms about getting the system. The system itself is so little and adorable but I was disappointed there was no Crash Bandacoot or Tony Hawk Pro Skater since those were games I played religiously as a kid. I also played a lot of WWF Warzone but no one expected that to be on a classic system lol. I don’t play modern systems/games and the last video game system I owned was a GameCube so I was very rusty playing the original PlayStation but a lot was able to come back to me. Am I dissapointed with the game choices? Sure but I had fun playing Resident Evil, Ridge Racer and Final Fantasy. So far I’m really happy with this system and the nostalgic happy feels it gives me.

    It was such a great price I had to buy it. The unit is small but it does come with 2 controllers which is good. I wish the controller cables were a bit longer but they aren't too bad. It was easy to hook up and the UI is decent. I just wish they had a better game selection. However, for the money you can't beat it.

    Bought this to satisfied nostalgia craving. Works alright, but after playing a few games, it ended up back in its box. Looking back, it probably wasn't worth the 40 sale price I got it for, but I used a combo of gift cards + rewards, so wasn't too bad in the end. I could only recommend it if it's on a deep sale (like 20) and/or if you really wanted to try one of the 20 preinstalled games.

    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.

    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.

    I had high hope's for this since I played probably 1000+ hours on my original Playstation when I got it in High School and took to college. The selection of games is ok and there were definitely ones that were not included and should have been. The attention to detail is pretty good and it does boot up quickly. The controllers are pretty accurate to the originals. They are USB and I have read you can use a dual shock but I haven't gotten around to trying that yet. There are also ways to "add" games if you search the internet without much trouble so you can add many of the games that should have made it but didn't. Since I grabbed it on sale for $20 I am pleased with my purchase.

    Best Served Modded

    I picked up a PSClassic when Best Buy was selling them $20 a piece. For that price, it was perfect time to mod it. Once you get into modding it, there really aren’t much games the PSClassic can’t play as long as they don’t require the analog sticks. Just make sure you do your research throughly! The idea of the PSClassic was an amazing one but poorly executed with the game choices. I hope this doesn’t deter Sony from the possibility of a mini PS2 and instead maybe they’ll be more choosier of what goes on it. Not to say people, me included, won’t mod it to death. But I think if the game selection id a bit better, people will be more forgiving of it’s shortcomings.

    Missed chance

    Kinda missed out on games they put on it. Lots of games I feel like they missed. Kind of underwhelming.
