Buy it. Once you softmod it’s definitely worth it.

Even modded, it's not worth it. It simply isn't powerful enough to properly emulate PS1.

 

Get a Shield if you're interested in emulating PS1 (and many other consoles) on your TV.

Run properly? I completed Einhander, Tomba, and Breath of Fire IV a few weeks ago and they seem to play fine on mine. No complaints and issues from my roommates when they played fighting games like Street Fighter Alpha and King of Fighters.

PS1 Classic $30 and 64 GB 2.0 USB $10 or less = $40 to emulate PS1 games, looks cool and retro, and portable. You can’t beat that. Note: I have 2x brand new PS TVs. I didn’t want to open it up and mod it since it will kill resale value if I do.

Heads up some people are having issues adding games and or switching discs.

At least what I've read in Reddit

Your personal experience says nothing about the quality of the emulation.

Sounds like a generic website that would have some random deal posted here and someone would be like "nooooope, site registered 6/6/19" and someone else would be like "eh, put an order with PayPal"

Super easy and cheap soft mod with good game compatibility and an easy to use front end for casual users. Seriously, now that the PS Classic has been cracked open, at 30 dollars everyone with a passing interest in this should pick it up. 

 

Anyway, that's my sales pitch. Go buy one.

Once it hits $20, I'm buying 2.
I regret not buying a 2nd Vita TV.

Is this any better than PC emulation? Have a good PC, so don't see the need to buy this. I can run with higher res and possibly filters/shaders.

Mostly interested in controllers as they're easy to repair.

No. For high emulation and more emulation games go with a decent PC / Laptop or Nvidia shield. The PSC limits you to 64gb 2.0 USB flash stick (fits 70-90 PS1 games) and does decent PS1, PSP, SNES, NES, etc. emulation performance for under $40 or less. Good for tight budget and non picky mofo.

This.  I own one.  You won't need another emulation device.

They're just being cheeky now, dancing around the magic $20 price-point.

Sure. Where can I get one for $30?

Got a free dev mode license on the X1 and run Retroarch so I have no use for this. But I'd still consider buying this if it drops another 10 bucks because it looks kind of cool.

It's the 2019 reboot of Winamp. Considered a reboot rather than a remaster, but it still really whips the llamas ass.

I remember how cool I thought Demolition Derby was back in the day. I choose not to ruin those memories by playing the game on this.

So did I.. honestly, they're a little disappointing. But the machine was well worth $25 for hacking.

They don't feel so great in the hands after being used to modern controllers, and the D-pads are a bit touchy. They throw inaccurate inputs if you're not very precise.

 

Nothing to guarantee you won't like them, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
