Looks good on my shelf.. that's about it

Sony made some strange decisions with this one, some games were designed for used with the original dual shock but they went with the first controller that features no analog sticks. There are some games that brought back very fond memories like Tekken 3 and MGS, unfortunately they are very hard to look at one a 50" hd tv, together with the emulation being sub par.
It looks really nice on my shelf though and was it not for someone buying it for me as a christmas present, I would never have owned one. But at least I can play FF7 on a playstation which is nice I guess. I'd say rather buy the snes claasic from Nintendo, it's amazing.

Very good PSX emulation

A good little console. Every works well and I haven’t found a single bug with it yet.

The obvious disappointment is the game list. There are several classic essentials missing, like a Tomb Raider, a Medal of Honor, Soul Reaver... but since all PSX games are third party and not owned by Sony, it is understandable the list would not be as encompass as with the Nintendo Classics. Also, 20 games is fewer than expected. Both these problems have already been fixed with device hacking however.

I would also have liked the controllers to be the ones with the analog sticks, but they have the classic pre-analog versions.

Hilariously bad

It is so funny how Sony messed up what should have been an easy win!
