Good price
It all began in Japan in 1994. The first PlayStation changed everything. And now you can relive the era that changed gaming forever with the new PlayStationClassic.

Preloaded with 20 of the best PlayStation games, including Final Fantasy VII, Jumping Flash!, Ride Racer Type 4, Tekken 3 and Wild Arms, PlayStationClassic is a miniature recreation of the original PlayStation console and includes a HDMI cable to connect directly to a TV.

SMALL BUT MIGHTY
PlayStationClassic mirrors the original PlayStation console with the same logo, button layout and packaging - but the new console is approximately 45% smaller than the original. Featuring a built-in virtual memory card, you can save your adventures as you switch between games.

CLASSIC CONTROL
The original PlayStation controller changed the way we play, and PlayStationClassic comes with two wired controllers in the box - perfect for taking on friends and family in thrilling multiplayer matches on the same sofa.

GAMES FROM A GOLDEN ERA

PlayStationClassic comes preloaded with 20 games including:

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Final Fantasy VII
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Intelligent Qube
  • Jumping Flash
  • Metal Gear Solid
  • Mr Driller
  • Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
  • Rayman
  • Resident Evil Director's Cut
  • Revelations: Persona
  • Ridge Racer Type 4
  • Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo

£200 for 16 games....I feel it misses the market that the mini consoles are aiming for.

Fantastic selection of games. But not enough considering the price. Plus, the design of it...the big Capcom shape, and clear buttons...urgh..

IF it ever gets released as they are illegally using FBA as an emulator as the licensing terms of said emulator states cannot be used commercially

Oooh it gets its closer to my biting point...
Euro version ?
The website is horrible, massive mortal kombat 11 advert that takes up the whole screen for a few seconds, then when I try to update my contact details it keeps forgetting them and kicks me back to the main page to see the mortal kombat thing again.
Heat added for price, but I couldn't be bothered to buy after my third attempt.

Totally agree regarding number of games, it has been rumoured that you will be able to purchase more titles either via direct download or via USB packs. Despite your dislike of the aesthetics i suspect that it is probably the reason why most will buy (otherwise you can always buy a Pandora's Box) that and the mighty AVP.

Amazed AVP ia on it. I imported the physical version of the Capcom Beat em Up collection on the Switch, despite being disappointed initially that AVP wasn't included. People cited licencing issues which I begrudgingly accepted. So to see it here means they just didn't include it...for what reason? Its easily one of the best, if not the best (my go to bat em up will always be Final Fight). To play that with nice arcade controls would feel great. But still, I guess there are other 'less legal' ways of doing that if desired. I think instead of the Capcom logo, maybe artwork of all the characters and stuff....I don't know. The clear buttons...have we ever seen clear buttons like that on any arcade cabinet? It just feels a bit off. I don't know what I'm talking about, but apparently the sticks are meant to be real high quality, which bodes well for the rest of the unit. At that price, you'd hope so to!

You could always hack this so more games can be put on it. I just can't see myself ever buying one of these for the day of nostalgia I'd likely get out of it before boxing it and getting back on God of War. heat for current price Op
Bundle this with a copy of F76, Anthem and £50 in cash and might bite.......MIGHT!

I'm not sure the licence means all that much when you're dealing with the company whose proprietary hardware you're illigally emulating... I'd imagine it was a case of; "accept this cheque or cease and desist.".

Software emulation of hardware is not illegal Oh is that why Dolphin, Citra, Cemu, redream, xenia etc have all gone now.....oh wait...
What's hacking like on the PS classic now? Can we put different games on it and do they run smoothly? I haven't been keeping up to date with this after the awful release reviews.

I'm excited about this too but I am a little disappointed at it having only 16 games and may cost £199, do you think they will add the ability to download more or will we just have to wait for someone to hack it?

They're not illegal to own and use no. but that's not really the point I'm making is it.

How do you tell the entity that built the hardware you emulated that they can't use your system without them turning around and telling you, you can't use theirs? They can always make the argument that consumers are paying for the Roms and Hardware rather than the on board emulator.
Edited by: "Krooner" 19th Apr
Didn't they originally want to charge £99 for this garbage? lol
Hold out a bit longer, these are going to be given out free to PS+ subscribers soon
Don’t get too taken in by all the negative reviews. I think this is actually a great little console as long as you purchase a recognised USB stick. I currently have 52 additional games on mine and they all run fine.

Yeh bit weird them bragging about what emulator there using on there website (as most know it's open source and not for profit) the webpage was/is also down whilst they back peddle. Thoughts are although the unit comes loaded with the roms once back at home you would have to download the emulation software (or it automatically does it for you as part of the set up) thus not technically being part of the purchase price!

When you get Mortal Kombat pop up, have you tried pressing 'down and start' at the same time? It should take you to the bonus round to fight Smoke before you proceed to the checkout.
Meh too much, I'll only buy when it goes under £20
Yes, £19.97 is my price for this.

My mate worked on this. And that's all I'm allowed to say
I think I can say that the box it comes in is a beauty on its own though.
Its a solid piece of hardware. Quality made throughout.
Cracking price for a great little retro machine with 2 decent controllers. With a USB stick and some searching about you can play all kinds of different emulators on this :

but one is legal and one is not They cannot make the argument at all if it installed and setup up they are breaking the licence agreement ergo breaking the law.
