    Very interesting devolpment. If they manage to modify the performance. And able to put more games on it. I’m going to get a PS1 classic for sure. Sony right now has offered an insulting product. It’s not even worth to get for nostalgia sake.

    I might think about getting one once the hacking will be more advanced.

    At the moment, I don’t like the game selection they put.
    I don’t like that some high pace games are un PAL format (50Hz means slow down not just 50/25 fps)
    I don’t like the visual quality the games are rendered at (worse than Vita)
    I don’t like the lack of optimization (very important for such early 3D titles).

    Basically, all I like in this product is the shape of it ;p

    It’s pretty clear that a PS3 with CFW is the real playstation classic.

    why has everyone forgotten this?

    One of the Japanese tweets mentions something about the MTK bootloader. If this thing is running on a Mediatek SoC, it’s no wonder it runs like garbage.

    • UhHuh says:

      It indeed runs on a MediaTek SoC. So that explains a lot.

      • Dewm says:

        A lot end MediaTek at that. You can get an MTK that runs rather well; but the one the PSXC uses is… ugghh… disappointing at best.

    • Demian says:

      No matter what SoC it has, *** can only run like garbage.

      I won’t buy a PSX-Classux, even if I can emulate a coffe maker on it, it’s a waste of money.
