    What would be the best way of making a "Playstation Classic," Basically a miniaturized PS2 with full PSone compatibility, all roms stored internally, and can output to HDMI (preferably at 1080p)? I'm aware I can just use a Raspberry Pi, but honestly I would like it to not look like complete and utter shit, and I don't know if a 3D printed case could pass muster.


    Or would just swapping out the optical drive on the super slim for a SD card reader and maybe using a HDMI adapter work? does the super slim support psone games?
