I picked this up during a really great sale. My kids love it, sometimes they don't want to stop playing. It's great that my kids have access to the games I grew up on. It's so much fun reliving the original PlayStation games and getting to play them with my kids. It brings back a whole lot of memories seeing them enjoying the games I enjoyed as a kid.
I know this is a really late review, especially considering I bought it just after Christmas, but having just reviewed the Sega Genesis Mini, I was reminded about my purchase of this piece of... plastic. What hasn't been said already? Strange pick of games (a few gems here like Rayman), half of them run on European PAL 50Hz instead of American NTSC 60Hz, no included AC adapter, terrible emulator, and games included that really need the Dual Shock controller to enjoy, like Metal Gear Solid. The game select screen is a mess. Not many options unless you can find a USB keyboard that can access all the hidden options like changing all the games back to NTSC. I'm not sure what Sony was thinking, other than trying to quickly and cheaply capitalize on Nintendo's success. Instead of Crash, Spyro, or Tomb Raider, you get.. Destruction Derby? Cool Boarders 2? Jumping Flash!? Just no! No! NO!!!
This system does not deserve the name classic, there's nothing classic about it. Terrible game lineup, bear bones UI, free and open source emulator anyone can download for free, and half of the games are PAL! You're better off with a Raspberry Pi. I'll only buy this thing when it's deeply discounted and you can already hack this thing.
