    Nostalgia and not breaking bank

    Retro gaming it is...... lots of games but not much of the ones you’re gonna care to play more frequently. The nostalgia was worth the price. I got this unit on sale with my BB points. Can’t beat that deal.

    Flawed at full price, useful when discounted

    The Playstation Classic is a flawed mini console. Some of it's main issues are the use of PAL versions of it's games, the lack of a AC plug, a lacking choice of games that at least has some real gems of gaming history, and a not too useful save system (only 1 per game, and easy to get confused if you're saving or canceling the save). But if you're able to get this below the 30 dollar mark, it has some redeeming qualities. The lack of internal security makes it easy to modify into a more useful retro gaming console, the presentation of the system itself and the packaging is nice, two USB controllers, and some good classics even if they're slow due to being from the wrong region (Final Fantasy 7, Metal Gear Solid, Resident Evil 1 for example). If you want something to represent this era of gaming or are curious to try modifying gaming consoles in the vein of the Raspberry pi, then it's a fantastic value when it's under the 30 dollar range.

    When this system came out at $100, it was no deal. However now that the price has fallen to 20% or 25% of the cost in December, it's a great buy! If you enjoy the first PlayStation system, this is a nice drive down memory lane. Some of the games play great, others are a little off, but for the price how can you go wrong. The controlls are great and over all the system works fine. Again if the price is $50, I would not buy, but for under $25 you can't go wrong!

    When this system came out a year ago, it was a major disappointment. However, it was tough not to pick one up for $20. The games that come on the system are kind of lackluster, but with gems like Syphon Filter, Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, Twisted Metal, and Tekken, there is enough here to warrant a purchase. I would have loved to have seen Crash, Spyro, and Gran Turismo in the library but you'll have to relive those games back on the original PS1.

    A Mediocre Mini Retro Console

    Owned for 5 months when reviewed.

    The Playstation Classic was definitely worth it at the $20 price point I got it for on sale, but beyond that its very hard to recommend. The emulation itself is just alright, but gets the job done, and the game list is rather lacking. There are some huge hits such as Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, or Final Fantasy VII, and even some hard to find hidden gems like Intelligent Cube but there is some obvious padding in the list. While obviously it is hard to make a list that will please absolutely everyone, there are some odd ball choices that I think could have been swapped with better options. It is also unfortunate that the controllers lack the analog sticks of future revisions. Makes sense since they want to stick to the original launch but still makes it harder/more annoying to play certain 3D titles.

    We bought this for our vacation rental, to give kids something to do when it rains. So far so good! There's a decent selection of games for the price. Lots of memories from my childhood rush back when playing these games. I don't remember the picture being so pixelated, tho. I guess all the new systems really have is spoiled. Highly recommended!

    Flashback to playing the original PS

    If you previously owned a PS and fondly remember playing any of the included games, the PS classic is a fun game console to play and return some of the nostalgia. The graphics and controller mechanics don't age well and the younger generations may not see the fun in playing them. The controllers are well built and for shorter play sessions this product is cheaper to buy as a package then to purchase the games individually.

    Just the few games included wasn't worth it. But followed mod instructions on Youtube to be able to play many games on it. Taking a star off as occasionally it needs to be reset to unfreeze it.

    Great retro console once you enhance it

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.

    The PlayStation Classic has well designed hardware and a true PS1 look about it. Unfortunately cheaped out a bit by not including a power supply (there's an HDMI and power cable, just no wall transformer) and the game selection is poor. To top this off Sony chose to use PAL titles for some games. PAL is a European television standard that updates the screen 50 times a second verse NTSC here in North America which updates at 60 times per second. The way they corrected for this causes a slowdown in these games. Not noticeable to someone who hasn't played them before but noticeable to many old timers. BUT WAIT! There is hope. If you search on line you will find BleemSync and AutoBleem. These two open source develops allow you to add additional games to PSC using a simple flash drive. Everything happens automatically and the PAL games can be replaced by NTSC versions. This makes the game selection be what you want (e.g. adding Crash Bandicoot) as well as allowing you to play NEC, GEO NEO, and other games using the Retroboot game emulation system. I couldn't be happier with my purchase once I made this addition. Just be sure to read up a bit on line to make sure you know exactly what to use and it will be super easy.

    I only bought this for the grand kids. It's worth the $30 I gave for it, but I wouldn't go over that. It works fine, no problems, and seems to be built well. The graphics have literally the same blocky arcade type appearance as the original 80's games. It comes preloaded with 20 games, and that's all you get. Period. It does not stream, and it does not take discs. It ONLY plays the preloaded games. It comes with a USB power cord, but DOES NOT include the power module ( a cell phone charger worked fine for ours ). You must provide your own. Worth $30 I guess.

    For the $20 I paid for it, I think this console was a steal. The titles included with it are kind of so-so, but it's still a fun system to break out and play every once in a while.

    It didn't sell too well at a very high price. So i waited for the price to drop down low, like very low. But i decided to bite at 20. Thought the games were worth a buck per games. I didn't like the fact there were no power adapter with the mini classic. At 99 bucks originally it should had come with a power adapter. Not sure if i would play the classic, but for now it looks good just sitting on the shelves collecting dust. Im a fan and loyal gamer to sony games and console. I think the games that had come preinstalled on the classic was great but there was only a few that i like. Not all of them made me wanted to buy the classic. The controller are nice and feels so nostalgic seeing the mini console and controllers. Overall i like it knowing i bought it at a cheaper lower price. But if you can find the classic at a lower price than 20 then go for it even if its just for display.

    First off, the Playstation Classic isn't as bad as people on Youtube make it out to be. Yes some of the games run on PAL and not NTSC which in turn makes those PAL games play at 50 fps. But my biggest complaint is not having the dual analog stick controller for the games. Don't get me wrong, the original playstation controllers are nice and buttons seem nice but I would've like the dual analog sticks. Thats why I couldn't give it 5 out of 5 stars. Everything else about the Sony Playstation Classic is nice.

    A Collector's Item in the Making?

    Sony tried to jump on the mini-console craze by issuing its PlayStation Classic console in late 2018 for $99.99, but as of this writing the price has decreased 80%. A poor selection of games, some odd choices of 50-hertz PAL games, and garish menus all contributed to this product's doom. With that said, I would expect sales to be poor for this mini console, which usually equates to high resale prices in the future. Time will tell…

    I had heard a lot of negative reviews when this first came out so I waited for a heavy sale before purchasing it but I have been pleasantly surprised so far. It definitely has its share of problems (just look at a lot of the earlier reviews) but at a cheaper price point they are as glaring. I read that you can actually hook this up to the computer and fix some of the problems that way too, will be giving that a shot

    I thought the design of the hardware was excellent. I thought they did just as good of a job as Nintendo did with their classics. But Sony has 2 things that go against them here. First is that the generation of games that came on that console didn't age well at all. Second, most of the games they put on it were not the games that really defined that console's legacy. However there are some games that make it worth the purchase as long as you are paying for the current $59 price.

    I would recommend this to a friend
