    ...I can't wait until modders get their hands on them and figure out how to add the good games to it. And for someone to start selling compatible dualshock style controllers.

    It seems the scalpers have gotten a nasty surprise. Median winning auction is about $60

    I understand it’s “classic” but to omit analog, scan lines, and decent games just leads me to think that either there will be a second or even third version featuring different peripherals and games, or (more likely) the hackers will DEFINITELY do what nintendont... I mean sonydont XD.

    Use any usb controller, add any games you want, external hdd support... cough.. aim track or dolphin bar... cough... would be great :)

    this is all very valid and well thought out criticism. A lot of people seem to go banana's over the emulator being used but the lack of some honest to goodness basic features hurts this device more than anything. still i think its only going to be a matter of time before people correct the issues with this unit.

    I'm on a "Wait and see" mentality. It does seem that Sony has not put in the touches that Nintendo did and the collection of games available is... not exactly the classics. Plus Sony has a long history of locking things down tighter than a nun's knickers so there's no guarantee or it might be a while before we see improvements.


    I got to be honest, pretty much ALL of the micro consoles made in response to the NES and SNES classics have been a bit disappointing.

    Scanlines never look right on emulators. Looks nothing like what a CRT does.

    Most people don’t own Analogue TV’s anymore. So they are sticking with HDMI. Anolouge is only for enthusiasts.

    So some hackers must have received the PS Classic by now and taken it apart bit by bit. So why ist there still no info about its hackableness? I am a little bit unpatient here :) USB Host Mod would be cool!
    I run PCSX in my Snes Mini already with about 140 games and performance and compatibility is really nice I think!

    Yep,i own 2x 14'' sony trinitron crt and 1x 32'' sony trinitron and 3x sony 2730qm Pvm monitor special for retro consoles.
    And i have a lot of retro game consoles.
    Its just better to play for example a psx on a crt then on a hdmi tv,like its better to play for example ps3 on hdmi.

    That's because TVs used triad sub-pixel grouping. LCDs use a uniform grouping. Except for Samsung, their LCDs use the triad approach, making pixel art look kinda shitty.

    Dunno, I have a hacked PSTV with dualshocks 3 controllers....it still a Sony pruduct, the controllers are basically DualShocks 1 and the emulation is better, you can put a 128GB mini USB Flash drive. Unless hackers make it better than a PSTV I don't see a reason to ever buy one.

    If they used Shadow Mask. I have a Sony PVM and it’s Apature Grill.

    There are shaders for both types but they don’t look like my PVM.

    I have a Samsung LCD. It’s a VA panel and it has straight rectangle pixels. I don’t know what you mean by triad approach, since pixles on many VA, TN, and IPS is triad RGB unless you want the diamond approach.
