PlayStation Classic €36.99 @ Argos

http://www.argos.ie/webapp/wcs/store...ductId=1484060


Pulled out of buying this on release due to poor reviews.

Worth a punt at this price IMO.

It can be easily modded to play any PSX games as well, so it's really an excellent deal. I bought one when they were reduced to €60 and it's a cool little thing, if a little flawed.

It's not, it's usb powered. You can power it off most TVs with a usb socket, or else use a phone charger.

It's nothing more than a fancy USB stick with an old PS1 controller.

The NES and snes minis didn't come with a USB power supply either.They can be powered off the TV or a phone charger.

As opposed to??? A full sized functioning PS1?

I read a review and someone was complaining about the graphics being worse than the original?? Think some people have rose tinted graphics. Think I'll buy this, just for metal gear solid and resident evil alone.
