You can use pretty much any AC adapter that takes a USB cable such as your phone or tablet charger.


Oddly enough my raspberry pi used a 2amp while most phones and tablets use 1-1.5amp

If I use the 2a, could it burn out the system or will it only take what it needs.

Providing more voltage than a product wants is bad. Providing more amperage? Perfectly fine.

As the son of an electrical engineer.. I feel I should know this stuff.. but I don't.

 

You sure though?
(Now I am studying/reading to see how this works. Thank you!)

Yep. Devices have requirements for a minimum amperage, but have no issues if more amperage is available. They only pull what they need.

That was my assumption, but apparently older machines aren't as good at managing the flow.
The way I was looking at it was that there is this much flow available, and as you said, they only take what they need for amperage.

No clue why they don't do the same for volts, but, understandable.

I’m assuming they haven’t announced any more games yet?

When they do, you'll see the page count of this thread shoot up.

Since Sony hasn’t announced anything, what games are you looking forward to/hoping for?

I don’t have a full list but I definitely want to see the original Tomb Raider, Gran Turismo 1 or 2, and Metal Gear Solid.

People think major candidates include

Metal Gear Solid
Silent Hill

Castlevania SOTN
Resident Evil (DC or 2.. I am betting 2)
A Spyro
A Crash
Crash Team Racing
Soul Edge
Gran Turismo 2
Armored Core

 

(Fun fact, back in 97 I got SOTN the day of released.. rushed through it, and later traded it in for AC to play split screen/link cable with friends)

They need to put on Thrill Kill to compete with Starfox 2 on the SNES.

So, six weeks away and a complete game list still hasn't been announced?  I have a feeling this will either be delayed, or they are already aware of the games list and are holding off until the last minute on releasing it (which is also a bad sign).

Probably the latter.

Yea, so many games people want..

If they aren't on the list it may become a no sell... we'll see.

 

My roommate is convinced it's a copyright issue.

Toshinden 2 was probably the best.

Toshinden 2 was probably the best.

"best" is incredibly relative.  That game wowed people at the time with the graphics, but that was about it.  It's not like the PSX didn't have some absolutely stellar fighting games, but Toshinden has lost all of the earlier appeal since technology is way past that.  Soul Edge in particular blew the doors off it, I bought my PSX for that game and loved it - it would be a much better selection.
