Ordered one through a previous deal that fell through (Smartoys for €34 shipped).

In the meantime I decided I wouldn't bother if it came back at a similar price. I concluded i'd spend more time hacking it than using it, then it would go in the back of a cupboard. If I really want to play some old PS1 games I have any number of ways of doing it - most of them better than this.

It's a good price so each to his own.

Are these decent when hacked?

Are the built in games fine too, or a bit sluggish? Heard the implementation wasn't as great as the SNES classic?

I was never a PS owner (SNES was my last console before I went PC), so this will be my first PS1

Now if only the ZX Spectrum remakes got off the ground. That's the retro release I'm waiting for!

Same as NES Classic was a NES .. SNES Classic was a SNES ... once they're hacked you can add games to them

Read up about it. It was universally panned on release, has poor emulation, and includes inferior PAL versions of some games. It’s not worth this.

Yes, that is true of original retail product but the whole point of buying it now is that it’s been hacked so you can modify the emulator and load any PS1 game you want on it.

Once hacked you can put up NTSC versions of the games which run at a better framerate.

36 euro for the ability ( with very little technical knowledge) of being able to play the entire ps1 back catalogue is a bargain if you ask me.

i was given a ps1 classic for xmas and since its been hackable its a great little device.

I'm sure you could buy a PS2 for less than that price, and play PS1 and PS2 games through it. Still have one set up under t.v. here

I think people are missing the point of this bargain alert. Sure there are other ways to play ps1 games, for free even, but the bargain is regarding this particular device. You won't get it much cheaper brand new at this time, so yeah, it is a bargain. Whether you think its worth the money is not really the point
