I had one ordered for collection in Waterford. I received the notification that it was available yesterday.
After reading some of the comments on here, I wasn't going to bother collecting it... I am so glad I decided to give it a go.

I think it's great. Autobleem took nothing to setup as I have a compatible sd card and a whole back catalogue is open to me, but what I wasn't expecting was that Destruction Derby is included. It's one of the games I bought with my PS on releases in 95. And it has 2 pads... Fricken sweet.

I'm sorted.
Now I have to dig up Warhawk and Crazy Ivan... and Air Combat.

Thanks OP.

A great piece of kit.

Finally got around to plugging this in tonight.

Plugged it up to a 55" but I gotta be honest the whole thing rocks even with the default package and emulator.

I haven't noticed anything performance-wise that takes away from the games..and even on a 55" the blocky graphics in Resident Evil didn't stop me from crapping my pants when the dog jumped in through the window (my first time playing this game)

I'm gonna have a blast with this...and probably hack it much later...thanks OP!

Thanks for that.

I had just checked the stock checker before I posted that request and it showed out of stock everywhere. Argos must of refreshed the un-collected stock around 8pm... I ,must remember that for the future.

Cheers.

Anyone that bought one. It might be time to order an OTG cable. New mod out that lets you plug in a USB and keep both controller ports free at the front...
