    Apart from Nintendo didn't start the mini consoles going.

    Fucking Nintendo fans again with the Nintendo did it first and Sony copied.

    Sega have rights to a third party that have been making mini Sega consol3s for fucking years before Nintendo ever decided to do the mini nes.

    Lmao, now this is laughworthy.
    Bah, that crap ain't good even if you hack it, just nab a psp/psvita and mod that one for ps1 games.
    Or just get an emulator on your pc, dunno. Anything is better than that crap.

    It’s a shame Sony had to mess this up, the lack of DS controllers has put me off buying one even if it’s hacked.

    Would be funny if one of the few things got ‘right’ was the inability to sideload games unofficially.

    And replace it with a better emulator like ePSXe Android for example.

    What's surprising? At least one revision of pretty much every Sony product since at least the PS1 was victim of defects caused by poor design or excessive cost cutting in manufacturing...

    Love people hating it yet still kept their order.

    Problem is the ps1 had such a massive library of great games it would have been impossible to please everyone.

    End of the day this is not an actual console it's just a trinket that console collectors will collect.

    Yes they could have done better putting better games but then that's down to licensing, I can say same on the nes and snes mini, had one or two good games and then shit games.

    But it's usual Nintendo fans will blindly defend them......

    I though you had already learned to not halfass your answers and investigate properly.

    now, don't misunderstand me. we all agree that the psclassic isn't good, but is not because of pcsx-rearmed.

    ATGames... What a fucking joke of a brand they are. Took SEGA way too long to drop them.

    95% sure the Libretro version of the emu supports it which makes it even more disappointing.

    Mini consoles already existed way before Nintendo got into it, especially the plug-n-play emulation arcade ones.

    Feels like a waste though and it would have been nice to have DS1 controllers with a usb port.

    We've seen paper clips, soldering jobs, magnets, etc...


    But never have I seen something as simple, as literally spending 3secs plugging in a Standard USB Keyboard.... Absolutely incredible.

    And there have been mini Atari and Coleco consoles that literally consist of a controller you hook up to your TV. But they've been a niche business at best up until Nintendo released the NES Classic, so saying that Nintendo started the mini console craze is fairly accurate.

    It would be funny if Sony outsourced the development of the PS Classic to a fresh out of uni students, then one student decided secretly enable this as an Easter egg and see if Sony's QA would pick it up.

    Little did they know, this was just a debug menu the entire time. Which is literally the emulators main menu that has been stripped down.

    Part of the reason why no one really cared about mini consoles prior to the NES Mini *is* AtGames. They basically destroyed the reputation of the mini console genre. Their latest bait and switch regarding the Bandai Namco Flashback is why Sega finally dropped them. (Strangely, having broken music in their entire lineup for the past decade was perfectly fine.)

    Besides that, there were at least two pretty decent mini consoles that I can remember:
    • Atari Flashback 2 - this one used an actual 2600-on-a-chip and had nearly perfect compatibility. Cartridge pins were labeled on the system board, so if you had the parts and a soldering iron, you could add a cart slot and use original cartridges.
    • C64dtv - this also used a system-on-a-chip rather than emulation, and it's possible to add connectors for a keyboard, floppy drive, etc.
