I don't know, a friend of mine has one, and we had fun with it. You gotta keep expectations on check, really. 'Course, I didn't buy it....

This really was a huge, huuuge missed opportunity. The physical console is amazing and the inside should be enough to run the games too. I'm just going to wait and not play anymore until they make it easy for randoms to mod it with custom emulator and ability to delete and add game roms. Should be soon considering it came fairly quick to nes classic and that seems to have been much harder to hack.

If I can find one for $25 I'll get it.

Last month, the PlayStation Classic went on sale for $39.99 (a whopping 60% off list) for a 48 hour period. If you missed it, your second chance is happening right now.

At the time of writing, the PlayStation Classic deal is available right here at Walmart with free 2-day shipping. Despite the console's shortcomings, it is definitely worth considering at this price. A quick search on the Internet will illustrate that the console is super easy to hack for adding new games, so you might be able to get a lot of bang for your buck. It's even cheaper than going the Raspberry Pi route at this point, and you'll get a cool PlayStation case to boot. Just keep in mind that there's no telling how long the deal will last this time around - it could end at any moment

Why buy it at that price now, when you could've bought it at $149 at release and play on it 5 times before using it at as bookstand, like me?

Don't risk it. Look what happened to the PS TV. Many waited for the $20 price point instead of picking it up for $40. Now the PS TV is out of stock and no longer in production. If you want one today it would cost you $200 for a new PS TV.

I'm tempted to get one now, but I'm gonna try to hold off on it until it's $20 or so.

I couldn't resit the urge to get one at Walmart today. I'm a bad creature.

I haven't opened it yet. I'm still studying the various hacks that can be used on it.

I'll try to wait until it hits $30. I don't think there is enough supply for it to hit $20.

2 weeks ago the Walmart I shop at had several shelves of them. They only had 2 consoles left this week, so I got one just in case they become scarce. I'll probably spend more time figuring out what I can do with it than actually playing it.

Last night I decided to hack and mod my PS1 classic with top PS1 games.

Bleemsynced mine last week, about 90 games atm, don't want to bloat it to much. It performs well enough imo.

Also, recommend 8bitdo USB reciever, I'm using my old ps3 controllers wirelessly, works great.

Thanks. I was about to buy a USB splitter/hub but I will get this instead.

How did you get to 90 games? Reports on reddit say the PSC will power shutdown randomly on you if you have more than 80 games. Also What brand and size stick are you using? I'm using a 32gb Sandisk Ultra Fit 2.0 at the moment and works great on it so far.
