Seemed to be one or two tescos in the UK running that price , either a 'get em shifted' managers discount or an accidental reduction.
I dont think Tesco over here carried them ?

If these keep dropping in price I might buy one for the hell of it. I'm glad I cancelled my pre order on one of these. I'd be sick if I paid 99 for it after all the problems with it. Sounds like a shed of a system but for small money I'd buy one, as an ornament at least.

Interesting - device gives you access to the emulators built in menu - allows you to change the settings like frame rate, add scan lines etc. Wonder why Sony hid that menu... Also makes it possible use wireless controller...

Hack stick is an absolute scam, just make the bleemsync stick yourself, its as easy as dropping some files into folders.

I cannot be sure as I havnt tried either- but they look like two completly things.
Hack stick is the less hacky one- it gives you wireless support and enables the existing hidden menu so you can run games at the intended 60hz rather than 50. For 20 quid it might have its uses.

Bleem does other stuff but not above?

The 'hack stick' (stupid name btw) is just a controller bluetooth receiver and they have mapped the 'esc' key to a button combo to you can bring up the emulator menu.

Bleemsync creates a usb drive that allows you to add other games, emulators, custom themes to the stock system.

Agree to all that(*) - and this is what I said in my post - the Bleem does not have either of this functionality you mention - eg,. Bleem as far as I can see doesn't offer Scan lines, control sensitivity, wireless or 60Hz play. Its only 20 quid - hardly a scam but seems to Complement the bleem device (*plus I might add it looks terrible)- again I dont have one.

Bleemsync lets you do all the above except wireless (you still need a hardware dongle for this), you can changed the emulator settings for each game individually or use a different emulator entirely, add scanlines, themes etc.

I couldn't help it...
I had a €20 voucher there for the local mall and got the PS Classic for €40 as a result.
Now to make the magic happen!
I need the Ridge Racer and NfS games on there, but Raiden Project, Raiden DX, Einhander and Harmful Park are must haves too.

Argos in Swords Pavillions.
They have a good number more.
If the device is now as easy to hack as a NES Classic Mini I'd say they might become more popular quickly.

It's very easy to hack, nothing to it. The hack vastly improves on the original, games play at full speed and mine has over 50 games now.
